As seasons change, you may feel the urge to shed your home’s dark or dated decor as if it were an old winter coat. With the Casa home collection, Dolce & Gabbana can help you inject energy and joy into your living spaces. Consider how a few distinctive furnishings could breathe new life into your surroundings.

Living in Bold Color with Dolce & Gabbana

Saturated color is a must if you’re hoping to create glamorous décor, whether in the foyer or the kitchen. To energize your space a little bit, you can add the sparkle of colorful glassware or a brightly colored throw. Even one small side table with a modern shape and eye-catching color can bring zest and personality to an otherwise generic room.

If you want to make a bigger impact with color, you may have to overcome some long-held decorating fears. Yes, that means committing to at least one piece of big, bright furniture. You might think a fuchsia armchair or shocking pink sofa feels like a design risk, but the payoff is a space that you’re happy to call your own and proud to show off.

Enriched with Pattern

Next to color, pattern is the most valuable player when it comes to waking up your home’s decor. Many patterns, from checks to flower prints to houndstooth, can make an interior look “polished,” but maybe you’re looking for a pattern that’s equal parts refined and revved-up. If that’s the case, nothing combines “styled” and “wild” like a classic animal print.

Armchairs and pouffes in a sensual leopard fabric will spread feline grace and power all around. Sit back and watch visitors to your home purr with envy and pose for selfies on your gorgeous furnishings. If there’s one iconic animal print you love even more than leopard, it’s probably zebra. Zebra combines the no-fail combinatin of black and white with an organic bold pattern that always feels unique. A class zebra rug or throw may be just what your space needs, but maximizing the impact of a pattern means breaking free of the expected applications. With D&G’s Casa line, you can splash zebra print on coffee tables, side chairs and bar stools as well.

Dolce & Gabbana Bring Magic to Handmade

The Casa collection displays hand-crafted Italian mastery at its best, and that commitment to the uniquely handmade is another secret for adding joyous vivacity to your home. For example, Dolce & Gabbana’s Carretto style is a nod to the the tradition of the Sicilian cart. It conveys a sense of both traditional workmanship and clever imagination, embodying the humanity of art, craft and design. Don’t overlook that sense of humanity and humor, whether in a hand-painted tray with an intricate pattern or the carefully shaped and polished leg of a side chair.

Home is where you live your life, and life is better when it’s bolder.
