Prims... my favorite place to decorate, the top of the kitchen cabinets, tops of any prim furniture, etc. You have great design freedom plus nothing gets disturbed or broken because up out of harm's way!!! For Christmas, just place an old Santa or 2 up there, and bingo you are done!!!!
In your Tuscan kitchen, group large urns, pots, bowls and plates, some reclining and some standing, with similar type objects on a an open shelf or above kitchen cabinets. Consider a wrought iron backdrop, small framed artwork, old copper cooking utensils and decorative floral, fruits and greenery in your above cabinet displays.
