Travel to Tuscany on Social Media Site – Top 10 Homes for Tuscan Inspiration

From: Ava Living
Published: Tue Aug 17 2010 today announced their selections for this week’s Ava’s Choice Designer Showcase titled "Italian Style – Beautiful Tuscan Inspiration for Your Home." Choosing weekly from among the thousands of designer home décor projects on, the selection committee narrowed the spotlight to just a handful of designers to be featured as Ava’s Choice on the homepage. Visitors from more than 160 countries click onto to view the Ava’s Choice showcase and the latest trends and fashions of interior design from around the country, and around the globe.

This week’s theme was inspired by the northern Italian region of Tuscany, which offers visitors an overwhelming experience for the senses, with the sounds of its music, the smells of its cooking and the visual richness of the distinctive style. It’s been said that visitors need never to go into a museum in Florence for that fair city is a feast to the eyes. It is like walking into history itself. Florence and its surrounding towns - Sienna, Montepucciano, Pisa, Arezzo - are situated in the heart of Tuscany’s rolling hills. The Tuscan landscape is flecked with Terra-cotta rooftops and cypress trees, and by the soft, sun-drenched hues of local marble and clay
