Tuscan decor ideas are a way to add elegant simplicity and comfort to your homes. Beautiful Tuscan decor ideas from designer Victoria-Maria Geyer, used for redesigning and redecorating of Tuscan interiors of an old villa in Italy are inspiring, creating calming and relaxing atmosphere for peaceful and luxurious lifestyle.
The old villa Borgo La Stella, reinvented by Victoria-Maria Geyer, www.victoria-maria.com/ is located in Radda in Chanti to the north of Siena, Italy and offer gorgeous Tuscan interiors, outdoor pool and spectacular surroundings. The former monastery is turned into a wonderful family home.
Antique furniture pieces and contemporary art, vintage architectural features and Tuscan home decor ideas are combined into bright and beautiful Tuscan home interiors.
The house is called Borgo la Stella, it’s has successively been a postal relay, a monastery, a bed and breakfast and finally was bought by the actual owners to make it a family house.
The owners, wanted it to be classical and antique, whereas I had this deep feeling that the house needed something more. Something else, than what you would it expect to be!
My biggest fear was to fall in the trap of “country-side cosiness”, with rattan furniture and red Vichy napkins! Not that I don’t like it, but the spirit of the house wasn’t that. So, the tricky part of the work was to conciliate the classical views of the owners and my more avant-garde desires.
In the living room, we have a antique desk, contemporary art, a vintage suitcase, Italian design sofa’s, Indian fabrics, bright colors and Swedish design chairs, all living together.
