Prior to that time, English homes were more formal and classical in appearance. With the picturesque movement, builders began designing elegant recreations of Italian villas. By the late 1860s, the Tuscan style house was one of the most preferred architectural styles for homes in the U.S. and it has maintained its popularity to this day. The appeal lies in the simplicity of design. Typically featuring an open floor plan and a mixture of Old World and Mediterranean styles, homes decorated in the Tuscan style are inspired by the elements of nature. Today’s Tuscan home is characterized by wide-plank flooring and wooden beams, along with arched windows and doorways. Accents of wrought iron, stone and tile are also typical features of Tuscan style architecture.
