Move to Italy or buy a second home in Tuscany - and start decorating it!
That's what you will want to do after closing and putting down "Italian Country Living" by Caroline Clifton-Mogg.
Homes rustic and eclectic, contemporary and traditional - they are all so down-to-earth and so charming, breathtakingly beautiful.
Ok, don't move to Italy. Read the "Elements" chapter and make youself your own little Italy at home.

I bought this book when it first came out and have probably looked through it over a hundred times since then. It's a perfect blend of what is modern and traditional in Italian country interiors and I would be happy to live in any of these rooms. I love this book.

Intersting homes are featured in this book with some unpredictable decorating. It has great photography of the homes as well as fantastic views on some of the featured properties. I also recommend French Country Living by the same author.

When I purchase a book like this I want rich photos that inspire me and this book delivers. Every now and then I just pull it out page through and soak up the images again. There are a lot of resources for finding the elements of Italian design, which I will probably never actually use, but it was a good purchase for me and I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to immerse themselves in the Italian countryside for a while without subjecting themselves to airport security.

Sometimes I just pick up this book and flip through the pages to inspire me when I'm thinking of ideas for my home. I love the feel of the book and although my home is not decorated in an "Italian Country" style, I have been inspired by this book many times and incorporated the ambiance into my own personal style. Very happy with this and glad I bought it.

Italian Country Living TRAVEL WITH THE AUTHORESS INTO THE LAND OF GENTLE, CULTURED PEOPLE OF ITALY. THIS BOOK IS VERY NICELY ILLUSTRATED IN LARGE PICTURES AND SELECT COMMENTS. I ENJOYED THE JOURNEY AND WILL TRAVEL WITHIN ITS RICH PAGES AGAIN SOON.
