Italian Decor

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.

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,

Outdoor Bench 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.

Outdoor Wall Art When it comes to outdoor décor, a stunning mosaic Outdoor Wall Art dresses things up, while

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!
