A celebration of Tuscan farmhouse style, with practical advice on how to bring the look home.For anyone who has ever dreamed of living under the Tuscan sun, Italian Rustic is the next best thing―a step-by-step guide to recreating the romance and appeal of the weathered Italian farmhouse. This nuts-and-bolts guide to building Italian-style walks the reader through all the elements that make the rustic Italian home so unique, from the hand-laid stone walls to the artisanal stucco wall finishes. Author Elizabeth Minchilli, an American design writer based in Rome and Tuscany, received dozens of questions from readers after publishing her last book, Artisan's Restoring a Home in Italy. The queries went beyond the usual searches for fabric and couches. "People were hungry to know how terra-cotta tiles were laid, or how fireplaces were built," she says. Italian Rustic, researched with the help of her Italian architect husband, is the user-friendly result: a book that explains, in clear text accompanied by photographs and drawings, how to lay a tile floor a la Italiana, or add a Tuscan-style pergola to any garden. With more than 300 stunning photographs shot on location in Tuscany and Umbria, the book contains profiles of local artisans, engaging text on how the farmhouse style evolved, and targeted advice on how Americans can find Italian-style building materials and craftsmen close to home. This essential sourcebook will appeal to anyone building an addition or an entire house from scratch, or for homeowners who want to add just a touch of Italian style to their houses.

I figured I would be looking at the pictures more than anything, but the writing just drew me in. This will be a great reference piece for future dream house.

A great book and chalk one up for the war againist perfect decor. The author has step forward and created a beautiful book with some serious analysis of what we consider are Tuscany/Italian elements in homes/houses. The photographs and paper are very nice too. This book sets a high standard which other authors would be wise to follow, not only does the book inspire but there are actually technical notes on how-to create everyting you would find in a Tuscan/Umbria home and garden. The author even provides resources for hard to find items in America (you aren't going to find brick or terra cotta roofing material at Home Depot or Walmart). I would recommend this book over many of the other current books covering Tuscany architecture. Also a welcome addition to those who already have a Tuscan theme library.

Many of these elements are also present in other southern European countries and Latin America, you can't get more rustic than the current state of homes and buildings of Cuba, just check out some of the current books on Habana/Havana or Cuba and you will find this rustic style in your own "backyard".

Of all the decorating books in my library, this one may become my favorite. It's not just because I'm crazy for Tuscany, however. Minchilli has given us more than a peek inside some charming farmhouses; she's shown us how to adopt, adapt and incorporate our favorite ideas into our own homes no matter where they may be.

The book is beautiful, full of gorgeous photos and tons of inspiration on every page. I was surprised to find that it isn't yet another book with decorative ideas like flower arranging or table settings - though I'm a sucker for those and have a shelf full - it concentrates instead on architecture, wall colors and finishing and many other detailed tips and instructions that will permanently give your house a Tuscan Charm. This is not about a ten minute decorative "fix" , these are changes only an architect familiar with the Tuscan magic could suggest and describe. The book wasn't what I expected, it is better than that. Wish the builders came with it!

This book is absolutely wonderful. I purchased this book for a friend who had just returned from a trip to Tuscany. She told it me was as true to what she experienced there as anything she had ever seen. I had also read it it and plan to make some changes to my home based on the ideas presented by the talented author.

Amazing book, a must have for those who appreciate authentic Tuscan architecture and design

This book will be a Christmas gift to grandson who has a great interest in architecture.
By far the best book I've yet seen on Tuscan styled housing. Infinately more authentic than most of the modern American interpretations of Tuscan style that are available on Amazon. Very insightful tips into how to achieve an authentic style house through understanding the history of the buildings. I now understand why I was having so much difficulty with my bathroom and kitchen style.
