Rich and earthy, these relaxed colors will create a relaxing and cozy space that instantly puts you, your family and guests at ease.

Tuscan paint palettes pay tribute to the land and sky, and they tend to have a muted look, as if they've faded naturally over time. Tuscan kitchens include an array of these earthy shades including bold yellows, rusty reds, burnt oranges, deep purples and natural browns. By relying on these warm tones and accenting them with cooler colors, you'll create a glowing and serene space that's full of old world charm.

A popular color for most kitchens, yellow plays a pivotal role in Tuscan designs as well. Tuscan kitchens rely on creamy, buttery or gold-toned shades of yellow that make a room feel bright and drenched with natural sunlight. Rusty reds and deep burgundy colors are also reminiscent of Tuscany, and these shades are often used as accent colors in Tuscan kitchens.

Terracotta means "baked earth" in Italian, and this type of pottery is made using clay that's found throughout Italy. This explains why warm, earthy oranges that resemble terracotta tiles show up in so many Tuscan kitchens.

Green is a popular paint color, but when it comes to Italian kitchens, deep olive green shows up more often than lighter colors. Gold is also commonly used in Tuscan kitchens and it works well with a number of colors, including plums and purples.

There are many directions you can go when creating a Tuscan color palette. Cream, green and red are a traditional Tuscan combination while a more modern space might incorporate rich yellows or olive green with deep purples as an accent. Red and burgundy shades can also jazz up a space and add some interest. It's important when choosing colors for your kitchen to make sure they work well with the other items in your room. Think about what you already have in your kitchen (or the appliances and accessories you plan to use) while coming up with your color scheme. In terms of cabinetry, Tuscan kitchen paint colors would pair well with medium to dark distressed woods.

In addition to being influenced by nature, Tuscan kitchens are also influenced by natural textures such as stucco or stone. To achieve this look on your walls, try a faux finish technique using latex paints to create an aged effect.
