Dolcevitafy : To make the ordinary, extraordinary..."The Sweet Life," is a way of living that is full of pleasures and we find that everyday deserves a bit of indulgence! Similar to how you carefully plot out the best views of a trip overlooking the sunrise, or at the top of a ruin...every nook in your home is an opportunity to elevate ordinary moments by delighting the senses, drawing from your rich cultural and travel experiences, to create a vibrant home full of joy and traditions that are uniquely yours.
