Tuscan Style - Entertainment Unit

Hi there! Today, I would like to share our Tuscan Style inspired Entertainment unit in the family room.
I am constantly changing up the family room. I need to find a pretty area rug to add warmth and color, and I also need to add a few other things before I am happy with it.
A flat screen used to sit in the space below, but I moved it.  I much prefer the ambiance of amber colored lighting to a shiny flat screen tv. Are any of you the same way?
I really like adding metal and wood to my tuscan vignettes. 
Pottery with greenery adds a softness to the space.
I like to find pots that are different, but alike in color and similar styles.
I adore topiaries and garden balls, I add them everywhere throughout the house. :)
I love the colors brown, green, rust, black, and beige together. 
Love these canisters from Hobby Lobby.
The metal and wood piece I found at Hobby Lobby.
I use these candle pillars year round and change out the candles from time to time. 
Greenery is great to use as space fillers.
 In the entertainment unit, I have used a few book boxes to add height.
Here I have used book boxes again! ;)
The center (top) part of the unit sits a pot with a garden ball, and two greenery sticks on either side.
So, there you have it....
The family room decorated Tuscan Style! Have a great day, everyone! I'm off to paint my pantry door with chalk paint....oh boy!!

Welcome To Our Tuscan Kitchen

Join me and I'll take you on a tour around the kitchen! Are you ready for lots of photos? Ok, let's go!
Tuscan kitchens are warm, earthy, and cozy.
Accessorizing the upper cabinets is fun! I like to layer items. I find it gives character to the space. 
I hung a metal wall embellishment, and added some items that look Tuscan style.
In the photo above, I added two trays and two plants.
In another corner of the kitchen I added this French Bistro sign. I only wish it said...
~T  U  S  C  A  N  *  B  I  S  T  R  O~
In another corner I have this cute Rooster and two canisters and some greenery. 
I've had this  BON APPETIT sign forever. 
I love color, so I have these cute veggie filled glass containers and a topiary on the counter.
Glass jars are always so versatile, fill them with whatever you like.
I like to place kitchen decor in baskets, because I think it looks cute. :)
I like to create little vignettes and I change them out frequently. ;)
When we moved I got rid of all my "white" furniture, it just wasn't me. I feel much more at home in this house....this is much more my style.
I love having a big window to look out as I do the dishes. 
I love fall colors so I was drawn to these curtains from Pier 1.
I    *LOVE*   C O F F E E!!!!
So, our kitchen would not be complete without a few cafe style coffee pictures.
I like to change out the kitchen towels with my vignettes. This week I am into green.
I've had this cute little kitchen pig for a few years now, isn't he precious?
Meet Mr. Piggy, the kitchen Chef!
I'm starting to change out the winter arrangements with spring flowers. 
On each bar stool I have a seat pad and two poofy pillows.
I love the colors in this pillow and basically used it to coordinate the colors throughout the kitchen.

Here is another spring arrangement in the kitchen.
The curtains I used in the kitchen are standard length curtain panels that I swaged over the kitchen curtain rod.
I love having a l o n g kitchen island.
I'm not afraid to use faux bread and fruit in my vignettes.  I think it adds a cozy, homey feel to the kitchen.
Our kitchen has lots of lighting which is nice.
At night, I love the lights beside the kitchen sink, cozy! 
I like adding rustic elements here and there, in this case, the distressed wall candle sconce.
 I'm obsessed with filling my kitchen jars with different things like pasta, beans, and greenery.
 I got the greenery in the pasta and rice filled jar from Real Deals....it looks like a big gigantic piece of Rosemary! ;)
 I like buying canisters that you can write on. It you shop T.J. Maxx, you can find these there.
Here is a little sneak peek of the dining area. I desperately need to buy curtains.
Lastly, this vignette has Spring and Summer written all over it.....hurry up Spring!
Well, thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the tour!
xoxo, Liz
