How to Transform Your Hut into a Fantastically Eccentric Gucci House
Since Alessandro Michelle took over Gucci five years ago, the Italian fashion label has taken us on a wild ride to a sepia-colored world inhabited by romantic artistes who dress like the vibe-iest (and genderless) grandparents in town—pussy-bows on shirts, big bug sunglasses on faces, florals on everything.
While it was a departure from the overt sex of Tom Ford or the strict sophistication of Frida Giannini, it took no time for the brain to adjust and give way to appreciation. The magpie kookiness of Michele’s Gucci speaks of freedom as personal taste and personal style, the unique way of putting things together, come to the fore and appear on Instagram.
If you’re down with this particular look and thirst for more self-expression, the Italian label is also here to fill all corners of your life with its home line. As with Michele’s clothes, there are no rules in Gucci Décor. That means an explosion of colors and patterns in designs that incorporate much of the label’s language. And by language, we mean flowers, animals, and starry eyes spewing rainbows.
Turn up the volume of a regular space with these crazy-wild treasures from Gucci:
These Marbled Souvenirs From Rome
Referencing yourself is a boss move, and that’s exactly what Gucci did in its “Souvenir from Rome” collection. The opulent hand-painted marbling pattern of folding tables and plates was inspired by the Musei Capitolini in Rome, the location of the label’s resort 2020 show.
These Cushions Are The Most
Whether in your LOTD or living room, tartan is a challenging pattern to work with, but don’t tell that to Gucci, which overlays the dizzying checks with a blue-eyed fawn and a flower wreath. Elsewhere, a tasseled green cushion with a vintage rug feel is the quiet one.

These Cloches Topped With Creatures
Nothing says your family is as old as the original 400 than a big ole cloche. Gucci Décor’s take comes in silver-plated brass with hand-done antique finishing. The domed food coverings are further embellished with phrases (“Gucci Orgasmique” anyone?) and five different handles: a hare, hand, snake, wolf, and pomegranate. Idea: Wow your guests by having a hare dish under the hare handle.
These Candle Holders That Pop
Do you really need a porcelain candle holder with a cover? Probably not. But if it is a porcelain candle holder painted with the Flora pattern, you do. The design is a part of style history as it was created for a silk scarf presented to Princess Grace of Monaco in 1966. We're planning to fill this with our forbidden stash of candy.
These Starry Eyes That Spew Rainbows
How do you make the Star Eye pattern—a lone eye surrounded by a border of lashes and a constellation of stars and bolts—even more otherworldly? You infuse the design with a rainbow so that the knowing eye appears as if it is spewing a dream.
