Interior Design Book: Patina Style by Steve and Brooke Giannetti

I’ll keep it short since my commentary simply cannot compete with the power of such brilliant spaces designed by Patina Style authorities,

Brooke & Steve Giannetti.

The Giannettis own

Giannetti Home

(architecture, interior, and landscape design),

and Brooke is the author of the divine

Velvet and Linen blog.

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


Patina Style

(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!

Feelin the only-better-with-age Giannetti signature?

    Loved your idea of asking my kids for a massage! How didn't think about something like that before?

    I'll try to relax, but I need to work a bit too… What about you? Many plans for the weekend?

    I really admire Brooke and Steve's work. They're so talented and this book is rocking, huh?

    That's also my fav. kitchen designed by them.

    Have a great weekend!

    to myself as just
    30 minutes ago I
    tore out two of the
    pics that you are
    featuring from my
    mom's copy of Food
    and Wine {shhhh!}
    which featured this
    very talented couple
    and their new book!
    LOVE that YOU love
    them, too….

    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…

    Oh my good god that is a beautiful kitchen.

    Nuff said I think.

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

    Those pendant lights look very similar to the ones we recently installed in our kitchen re-do so I'm feeling REALLY GOOD right now!
