LIVED-IN lovely {Patina Style}

11 August 2011

I'll keep it short.

My voice simply cannot compete with
the power of such brilliant spaces
designed by
Brooke & Steve Giannetti.

The Giannettis own
Giannetti Home
(architecture, interior, and landscape design),
and Brooke is the author of the divine

The Giannettis encourage 'lived in' design.
They say go ahead and use beautiful
materials which change and
develop patina over time.

In fact,
they wrote the book
(Gibbs Smith).

Their book is stunning
in all its gorgeous-ocity
and should be in the possession
of all decor freaks, demons, and junkies.

I leave you with my
favorite Giannetti kitchen!

  11. i love so many of the philosophies expressed in the Giannetti's book, yet even if they said nothing at all, the eye candy alone would satisfy...

    No wonder you love it, it's lush! So elegant, so dreamy...sigh.
