Tuscan-Inspired Home is Old World, Stylish
The Tuscan-inspired home has an Old World feel while maintaining a contemporary floor plan. Designed by Don Sharp with Sharp Design Studio, the Tampa Bay showcase home for 2014 has won many design awards including a national Aurora award for best single family design in the $500,001-$750,000 category and Parade of Home awards.
The Mediterranean-inspired family room is designed with rugged textures and comfy textiles. A vaulted wood-paneled ceiling crowns the room, while the furniture arrangement allows for two comfortable sitting areas.
A Moroccan tile backsplash in neutral tones is the focal point of this gray Spanish style kitchen. Arched doorways mimic the niche behind the stove, while white cabinetry on either side provide plenty of storage space.
Romantic Mediterranean Dining Room Brings the Drama
Dark gray walls set the tone for romantic dining room, accented by the rustic nature of the reclaimed table and linen chairs. Custom drapery is drawn back for a dramatic touch, while topiaries set against framed neutral fabric create instant sculptural art pieces.
Small transom cabinets and open shelving provide storage for easily accessible kitchen necessities. An ornate tile backsplash gives added visual interest to this sink area and provides contrast to the smooth black countertops.
A large bank of windows lets natural light stream into the kitchen and gives any dish washers the bonus of a pretty view. Light gray cabinets and a tile backsplash soften the crisp white countertops and farmhouse sink.
This kitchen is a masculine space comprised of stone, copper and brass. The island helps separate the cooking areas and is illuminated by a trio of hanging copper pendant lights from Oly. Nailhead accents are repeated throughout the design, from the island panels to the countertop edge and molding.
Mediterranean Hall Decor Featuring Tall Wicker Baksets Under a Clear Plastic Table With Decorative Blue Vases
The corner of this hallway is brought to life with a Mediterranean display. A clear plastic table supports a trio of beautifully ornamental blue vases. Two tall wicker baskets are perfect height for tucking under the table doubling as storage space. A mirror is mounted over the setup to fill some of the gray wall space.
Designer Melissa Salamoff gave this galley kitchen Moroccan tile features that are reflective of the overall Spanish-style home. The arched mosaic tile backsplash over the stove echoes the arched doorway leading into this kitchen.
