Have you seen Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna’s Sicilian villa? The villa is as colorful and bold as D&G fashion itself. Sicily is omnipresent throughout interior decorations - ceramic tiles, Sicilian pine cones, walls in colorful Italian plaster. For me the wall colors are too wild for a home but then we have to remember - this was a getaway villa for D&G couple who mainly worked from gray industrial MIlan. They probably missed colors of Sicily, its lemons and ceramics!

So as I check one picture after another, studying textiles and furniture what do I see? Did I see that right? Among wooden Italian furniture there is a sofa upholstered in Uzbek suzani! Madonna Santa! Uzbek suzani in Dolce and Gabanna’s villa in Stromboli? For those of you still struggling and doubting whether you should be bold and use Uzbek suzani, go for it! Be brave! Be different! The villa is for sale here. You can buy the villa which comes with that sofa upholstered in Uzbek suzani or you can buy Uzbek suzani here and upholster your furniture. Good luck with whatever path you chose to embark on!
