What Is a Tuscan Color Chart?

A Tuscan color chart is a set of colors that closely resembles the colors of Italy's landscape. This color palette includes a range of burgundies, purples, greens and blues.

A Tuscan color palette brings a warm feeling to a room. It uses many earth tones like browns and grays. A popular Tuscan color is terra-cotta, which looks like much of the clay found in Italy. It also uses many muted gray and beige shades that are accented by the purples, greens and blues. Tuscan design often uses sponge or rag techniques in painting to replicate the mixed way the colors appear in nature.
