Wood Beams

For our Chennai flat, we’re designing a kitchen with Tuscan elements. One element I really like about Tuscan kitchens are wood beams on the ceilings:

I am thrilled that the people finishing our place “get it” when we share ideas with them. They’re going to put wood beams on our kitchen ceiling, and make the beams look old, like this place has been there for hundreds of years. Here’s a picture that my sister-in-law took in Paris a few years ago. Of wood beams! Something about the beams drew her eye. So she shared this with the designer and he’s going to make our beams look old like this:

To find inspiration from Tuscan kitchens, explore photos of the villas for rent at to-tuscany.com. We rented a small house for a week in Tuscany via this website, and it was a wonderful experience. We want to try to capture some of the feeling from that week.
