Interior Design texture
Texture is an important aspect of Tuscan interior design. The appearance of many layers of paint, cracked stucco or marble walls, and worn furniture are used to add an Old World charm to the room. Wood grain and texture are highlighted, as well as any cracks or crevices. Irregularity is used to add interest and warmth.
Wooden laths are narrow strips of straight-grained wood depending on availability of species in lengths of from two to four or five feet to suit the distances at which the timbers of a floor or partition are set. Laths are about an inch wide, and are made in three thicknesses; single (â…› to 3â„16 inch thick), lath and a half (Â1 inch thick), and double (â…oâ€“Â1 inch thick).
Paint & texture
Many people settle for selecting a paint color from a small paint chip that’s usually no more than an inch wide, and more often than not the results are disappointing. The simple solution is to narrow down your color selection to two or three colors, then go and buy a small amount of each color – it’s worth the slightly extra expense. Then get some foam core board, about two-foot square for each color selected and paint each foam core piece one of the colors. Prop up the dried samples against one of the walls in your room and study them at different times of the day because they will look different in different light; also move them from wall to wall because the light can affect them differently on different walls. It is always best to do this so that you do not regret your color choice two months or more down the road.

An insight into the French term “galante” can be seen through Boucher’s painting Le DA©jeuner (above), which provides a glimpse of the society which Rococo reflected. “Courtly” would be pretentious in this upper bourgeois circle, yet the man’s gesture is gallant. The stylish but cozy interior, the informal decorous intimacy of people’s manners, the curious and delightful details everywhere one turns one’s eye, the luxury of sipping chocolate: all are “galante.”
