From the authors of bestselling Patina Style, Brooke and Steve Giannetti’s long awaited follow up book Patina Farm will release in Spring of 2016. Brooke’s inviting narrative along with 150 extraordinary photographs and Steve’s sketches, provide an in depth, inspiring account of the couple’s collaboration and creativity building Patina Farm in Ojai, California.
The relaxed elegance of their modern European-inspired home developed from years of planning, travels both domestic and abroad - particularly in Belgium and France - along with meticulous selection of antique materials. Terra Cotta roof tiles, stone sinks, reclaimed barn beams and architectural elements bring the warmth and texture to the white plaster walls, clean glass and steel elements. The natural palette blends the indoor/ outdoor lifestyle connecting the interiors with the lush landscape. A charming menagerie of farm animals - miniature goats, donkeys and hens add a delightful quality to a home created to fulfill a lifelong dream of the Giannetti’s.
Brooke and Steve studied the art of living well and their efforts resulted in the creation of a casual, comfortable home filled with nature, space and light. Patina Farm offers an intimate, private tour through the process, planning and design providing readers encouragement and inspiration to follow their dreams.
Steve Giannetti is a renowned architect, and Brooke Giannetti is an interior decorator and writer of the design blog Velvet and Linen. They also own Giannetti Home, a store that sells furniture and products for the home in their signature Patina style.
