There are several ways to go about sourcing these finds. Look for local artisans who hand-make their wares; scope out stores that sell unfinished pieces so you can add your own spin; scour vintage shops for furniture with a history; or, if possible, commission a one-of-a-kind piece to be made from reclaimed natural materials.
Backsplashes are a great way to incorporate lively design flourishes in a Tuscan kitchen design, with mosaic tile and terracotta being popular choices for materials. Matte finishes may generally prevail over glossy ones in Tuscan kitchen designs, but backsplashes are one area where there may be an opportunity to add a little shine to the design, breaking up an otherwise earthy, laid-back feel with some gleam.
Whereas antique cabinetry might be painted white, beige or light yellow, countertops in black granite, whether matte or glossy, can provide a great opportunity to add contrast. Flooring made from substantial, dark wood planks also creates contrast with the preferred color schemes in Victorian kitchens, which may feature accents in light blues, yellows and rose pinks, building on the romantic feel.
