Who hasn't ever dreamed of owning a beautiful Italian villa? Well, if you can't make the move to a dreamy Sicilian retreat, the next best thing might be to deck out your home with Italian wares.

To help with that, SMEG and Dolce & Gabbana are back at it again with a new kitchen range collaboration. Known for boldly-patterned fridges, kettles, and toasters, the two Italian brand's newest and third release, the "Majolica" collection, is made up of three large appliances: a FAB28 refrigerator, a gas range, and a range hood.

The two companies first began their joint venture in 2016 with 100 limited-edition FAB28 refrigerators. Back then each one was hand-painted by varying artists of the designer's choosing, these one-of-a-kind products would set shoppers back $50,000 apiece.

This new collection, which works as a gorgeous complete set, is inspired by traditional Italian Majolica ceramic (a type of tin-glazed jewel-toned pottery) that is deeply-rooted in Sicily's history. Each kitchen item in the Majolica collection is blue and white with intricately adorned images of Mount Etna, Grecian ruins from the Valley of the Temples and ruins of a castle built by the Byzantines and a 14th-century sanctuary.

Is this the spring kitchen update you're looking for? SMEG and Dolce & Gabbana's new Majolica collection won't set you back $50,000 like the original hand-painted collection but is on sale for $5,000 to $10,000. Just promise not to go sticking magnets on the front of that chic fridge.
