August 11, 2017

Recently we toured the living room of
beautiful renovation in Atherton, California,
by Giannetti Home, appearing in C Magazine
and photographed by Lisa Romerein, and today
we'll explore that home's family room.

You may recall this home captured our imagination
with its lovely modern farmhouse incarnation
(it began life as a traditional Midcentury Cape Cod!).

A closer look at the interior design of
this beautiful home's family room reveals at least
 design lessons worth turning our attention toward.

1.
Modern Open Shelving.
Often when we seen open shelving in farmhouse
style spaces, the shelves are cluttered with an
assortment of vintage treasures in a rustic chic
manner; however, in this Giannetti Home
family room, we see a very clean presentation
of the homeowner's framed photography.

2.
Elegant, oversized sconces.
In lieu of more traditional, barn style sconces,
Giannetti Home chose these patina-ed,
Euro-inspired sconces to flank the magnificent
antique cabinet with glass doors.

The mix of rustic and refined is unforgettable!

3.
Multiple Design Influences.
No need to stick to strictly French, Italian,
Belgian, or Swedish influence since they
work so harmoniously together in the mix.

In this family room, we see Belgian style sofas with
Belgian linen, Swedish antiques, French oak pieces,
Italian influences, and American-made furnishings.

What keeps the space feeling cohesive are
the design goals of ageless, unfussy, and calm,
interpreted through a modern lens.

4.
A Peaceful Palette.
The pops of blue bring a beachy goodness to
this neutral family room which is graced by
the natural beauty of nature just outside the
over-scaled walls of glass.

Pale floors feel like warm sand underfoot,
and the creamy plaster backdrop allows
natural, neutral, earthy, and muted colors
 to contrast and shimmer.

5.
Woven Textural Accents.
I love how much texture is introduced in
the design with simple touches like vintage
wicker trunks which can be moved around
and for hiding clutter.

They also add a casual charm to keep
things from feeling precious or fancy.

6.
Details Matter.
One last detail to note...the details!
I remember when the interior designer of the home,
Brooke Giannetti, shared this door hardware (an eBay find!)
as the project was being completed, and it was an example
of how devoted this team is to finding just the right
mix of materials, finishes, and details for their clients.
