As the summer months descend upon us and we begin to feel the warmth of sunny afternoons, our attention often shifts to planning holidays abroad but you don’t have to head to the airport to add continental flair to your life. Instead you can bring a taste of the Mediterranean to your home with the stunning new range Dolce & Gabbana appliances who have team up with SMEG.

The new Dolce & Gabbana appliances come using traditional Sicilian art as inspiration. There are a number of must-have appliances in the Sicily is my Love range that will instantly brighten any kitchen.

The arrival of the new Dolce & Gabbana Appliances and the Sicily is my Love range of kitchen goods isn’t the first time that SMEG has collaborated with the Italian fashion designers. In 2016 Dolce & Gabbana worked with SMEG to make one hundred completely unique hand painted refrigerators.

However, you won’t need to redesign your kitchen in order to make room for these funky new Dolce & Gabbana appliances, as they are smaller items such as toasters, juicers and coffee machines, which will neatly sit on your worktops without the need to call in the builders.

The designs that Dolce & Gabbana have produced for SMEG’s new lines are primarily themed around traditional folklore. The vibrant aesthetics are a combination of square and triangular patterns known as ‘crocchi’, floral motifs and acanthus leaves – as found painted onto many Italian ceramics – along with representations of Sicilian fruits such as red cherries, lemons and prickly pears. These delightful Dolce & Gabbana appliances are truly desirable and are guaranteed to breath Sicilian sunshine throughout any home.

The new Sicily is my Love range of kitchen appliances includes all kinds of SMEG gadgets. There are toasters, stand mixers, slow juicers and citrus juicers, coffee machines, kettles and blenders. This means that you aren’t just buying a piece of Dolce & Gabbana designed artwork for your home, you’re also getting a high quality, durable and functional kitchen appliance as well! SMEG has been manufacturing kitchen goods of the highest standard since 1948, so teaming up with internationally acclaimed designers, Dolce & Gabbana is simply a match made in heaven (or made in Sicily, which some say is pretty close to heaven!)

We do have to concede that the attention-grabbing oranges, reds, greens and blues that are emblazoned across these appliances may not suit every kitchen but, as April is Home Improvement Month in the UK, why not think about undertaking some renovations or touch-ups to add some continental vibrancy into your home. If you don’t want to invest in a new fitted kitchen right now, why not think about changing the cupboard doors and worktops? Professionally installed finishing touches may be all you need to create a small piece of Sicily in your own home…and at a fraction of the cost of a new kitchen. This way you’ll have pennies free to buy some of these beautifully designed Dolce & Gabbana appliances.
