Home Italian Décor: Italian Design Style
Classical, rich, and earthy – those are the central themes of Italian décor. The style is inspired by the Italian hillsides, touches of rustic farmhouses, and bold Italian oil paintings. Soft, neutral walls are offset by colourful, warm accent pieces.
If you’ve been craving a delicate getaway to the country of gelato, pizza and wine, get the look in your very own home using Italian inspired furniture pieces and wall colours from Benjamin Moore.
Italian Décor: Bedroom
Italian design style usually combines the antique and contemporary styles together. For your bedroom, look for an old-world headboard with a bed that’s low to the ground.
Try the American Drew Grand Revival headboard with
the Fashion Bed Group platform bed – a mix-n-match look that works! Spacious night tables are another Italian style must,
so consider the Nexera Nocce wood nightstand to add to the contemporary flair.
Organize and store you clothing in accent chests, like this rustic accent chest of drawersl from Coaster. Keep the colour palette neutral to make your bedroom a peaceful Italian retreat.
Italian Décor:Living Room
It’s all about accessories in an Italian styled living room.
Wall art can range from Wall Tapestries,
to intricate Iron Wall Art.
Update your couches and chairs with fresh Soft Cotton Throw Pillows,
and consider throwing down a classic accent rug, such as this Italian Rug from Couristan Recife.
Experiment with neutrals and colours in your living room – a basic brown couch can be accented with an olive green blanket, or ivory walls can be adorned with exquisite, vivid oil paintings.
or the Avenue Six Plaza 79 Inch Tufted Sofa for living room seating.
Italian Décor: Kitchen
Since the Italians are most known for their cooking, a great place to infuse Italian style is in your kitchen.
Dress up your walls with a Wall Panel Set, and consider finding glass jars to display your different pastas in.
Bring plants into your kitchen and display them from a Terra Cotta Planter Pottery Basket,
For the dining area, a great Italy-inspired look comes from curved metalwork.
Take a look at the Pastel Furniture 54" Round Glass Italian Dining Room Table Set
or consider the Powell Biscayne Glass Top Dining Room Set.
Store your wine bottles in wine racks, like the Bago Luma Tall 79 Bottle Iron Italian Wine Rack,
Italian Décor: Outdoors
Taking the Italian style outside works very well, since the style is inspired by the outdoors! If you’d like some seating either on the patio or in the backyard,
a Italian Bistro Set is very Italian chic.
A beautiful bench, like the Oakland Living Mississippi Outdoor Bench Settee, has a romantic Italian feel that will instantly give your backyard charm – and more seating options.
When it comes to outdoor décor, a stunning mosaic Outdoor Wall Art dresses things up, while
Urns scattered throughout the backyard give off an Italian countryside vibe.
Remember that Italian design style is suitable for all budgets and room space. Since Italian style is very old-world influenced, you can find a lot of Italian Decor inspired pieces at thrift stores and flea markets.
If you live in small quarters, to open up a room, focus on light yellow and cream wall paint, and skip the drapes – open windows bring in more light, giving a room the appearance of more space.
It isn’t a challenge to bring the popular style of Italy into your home!
