Textured walls, stone flooring, and tile roofing are some of the details of this villa. Limestone and sandstone on walls, obtained with plaster, stucco, dry wall compound, while stone, and rustic tile materials are native to Tuscan interiors. Terracotta indoor and cobble stone flooring in the courtyard entrance. Colours generally are inspired by nature, yet here the owners have favoured a touch of contemporary: large rooms, white, empty yet comfortable rooms.
