Faves Home: Italian Kitchen
Bringing an Italian look to your home is easy with these ten mod Tuscan-inspired kitchen finds. Afterwards, you'll be in the mood -- and prepared -- to cook!
Get the Look: Tuscan Italian Kitchen
You don't have to go to Italy to capture the feeling of a Tuscan Italian kitchen. These days, bringing home bright and colorful Italian flavor can be as easy as a new tea kettle or a quick coat of paint.
Tile with Style: Go farmhouse-chic with a backsplash of creamy, mottled travertine tiles (6" x 6").
Hand-Crank Pasta Maker
Use Your Noodle: A classic, manual-crank Atlas Marcato smoothly rolls out uniform pasta and comes in four cool colors.
Fresh-Picked Pattern: This hand-painted Market Platter is reminiscent of Italy's open-air markets. It's almost too pretty to cover with food!
Bright Colored Paint
Coat of Personality: Add a splash of unapologetic color: Valspar Terra Cotta paint is a sunnier version of traditional Tuscan reds.
Copper Tea Kettle
Full Steam Ahead: The Chantal tea kettle's copper finish not only looks good, but also conducts heat for a faster boil.
Buy a Round: No more fighting over the big slice! Guiding grooves on the bamboo pizza board ensure equal portions.
Home Plate: It's not just for salad anymore! Hang a hand-painted Chianti dish on your wall; it mirrors the colors of the Tuscan countryside.
Mortar and Pestle
New Crush: The quickest -- and most fun -- way to make pestos and spice blends: Pound them in a mortar and pestle!
Hand-braided Rattan Tray
Tray Chic: Treat yourself to a cappuccino in bed on a hand-braided rattan tray.
Pretty Pour: Whether it's milk or merlot, it'll look infinitely more elegant served in a Bauer Earthenware Pottery mini pitcher ($28) or carafe ($70).
