Modern Farmhouse Renovation by Giannetti Home

This unbelievably beautiful Mediterranean modern farmhouse renovation makeover in Malibu by Giannetti Home (Steve and Brooke!) and Jones Builders Group is overflowing with design lovely and blowing my mind via Instagram (dude…follow me, I’m new at this).

Keeping the original footprint, this California home has been refreshed and lovingly lightened up with the Giannetti’s favorite timeless elements…

Oak windows
Steel doors
Plaster
Antique Roof Tiles
Chateau Domingue Antiques
White Oak Cabinetry
Rustic floors from Exquisite Surfaces
Lacanche Range
Farm Sink
Linen-skirted Sink Bases
Reclaimed Stone
Antique Fire Brick
Antique Doors
White Oak Shelves
Removal of Baseboards and Trim
Patina Style Voodoo, Magic, and Je ne sais quoi

…which will only improve with age and wear.

Not gonna lie.
I could not figure out how joining IG would enrich my life online (it’s already rich!) or help grow the blog, but none of the rationale for joining even matters now…for me, IG is about glimpsing Brooke’s images
of Patina Farm and her clients’ projects.

The mini donkeys!
Chicken coop ugrades!
Goats on the porch!
The guesthouse in autumn!
Sophie and Hector!
Ojai sunsets!
And even…
Malibu Mediterraneans
fleeky with farmhouse style!

C’est tres possible this blogger and new IGer
needs to de-caffeinate, but GUYS!

Who doesn’t adore a great before/after?
Let’s take a peek…here’s the Malibu home before.

(Does this remind you at all of Meryl Streep’s house in It’s Complicated? I recently mused about that home’s decor, extracting ideas from its Belgian-cozy vibe for us to steal.)

What a glorious renovation in Malibu…

…antique roof tiles, new windows and much more. The kitchen before had gorgeous details and warmth…

Behold.

Not a single accessory and perhaps that is why, for me, admittedly minimal and subtraction-happy, this kitchen feels so organically perfect, natural, and even chapel-like in its brilliant architecture and holy energy.

    Beautiful home!! they are certainly a talented team!!!

    Michele, I died along time ago when Brooke was posting the finished rooms I commented Brooke, your killing me! This husband wife team are nothing short of genius. Their creative input to this tired home proves any home can be loved again.
    Does it not make you want to go and evict the home dwellers and move in? If so your sharing it with me. Again your dramatic excitement plays out justifiably, and I am just as crazy over Brooke and Steves seamless collaboration as you are.

    I am on a lung transplant list after countless IG foto's I've taken pleasure in lusting over, they have all left me breathless. I can't wait to see what Steves landscape art will look like, if that's the direction they are heading in? It's will most likely blow our minds.

    Thank you for the recap on this amazing home…. OXYGEN PLEASE !!

    Xx

      I think it’s from Walker Zanger…your best best is directing questions to Brooke Giannetti via her blog VelvetandLinen.com

      Hi Sara. You might be able to gather more info by directing your question to Giannetti Home and referencing the link to this post. The Giannettis frequently use limestone and reclaimed stone in their projects. Thanks for reading.
