Tuscany, Italy, photo by John Ecker | pantheon photography

TUSCANY ITALY:   Tuscany and Tuscan inspired decor and colours became especially popular after the release of Frances Mayes’ book Under the Tuscan Sun in 1997 and released as a major motion picture in 2003. It seems every home paint manufacturer soon came out Tuscan inspired colours– typically in the red/ocher, orange, yellow/gold, green and– to a lesser extent, blue hues.  I find the ocher colour of this farm building to be pretty typical of the Tuscan countryside.  The Tuscan region is also where the Italian Renaissance was born– home to Michelangelo, da Vinci, Botticellie and Puccini.  And, of course, it’s the also home of Chianti!
