Traditional Lofty Modern Farmhouse in California {Farmhouse Style}

Interior Design Inspiration: Modern Farmhouse Style

 

It was impossible to miss my enthusiasm for

Brooke and Steve Giannetti’s modern farmhouse

project in Malibu, and upon viewing a feature

in C Magazine for another stunning traditional,

lofty modern farmhouse, brace yourselves for similar

high energy commentary and dramatic punctuation!

 

Fine. I’ll behave with the exclamation marks.

Probably.

 

You must understand that I have been committed to

and personally invested in a whole house DIY renovation

since June 2015, and in multiple renos before that,

so renovation stories are treasures to me, and the creatives

involved in transforming structures, my heroes.

(No, I most certainly am not equating our humble

fixer upper project with the refinery going on

in the Ojai, California vicinity! Ha!) 

HELLO LOVELY has always worked hard

to leverage the role of the artist and creative

because they are so very important to the health

of our culture, society, and humanity.

Artists build bridges to transport us to beauty,

and I still believe beauty can save the world.

The walls came down inside this couple’s decaying,

Midcentury, Cape-cod, traditional home in

Atherton, California, and working within its

existing footprint, the house

received a brand new lofty identity.

 

The Giannettis are a dream team,

and I had a chance to talk to them

when their book PATINA FARM launched.

They are the real deal.

I am so grateful for the Giannetti’s open-ness

in sharing their design journey and

de-mystifying so much of the work

and process so we too may emulate

the rustic elegance of patina and farmhouse style

so freely shared online and in their books.

We often take this willingness for granted,

and it isn’t a small thing.

 

Successful design elements at work

in this lovely traditional home?

Oh, guys.
I am trained in psychotherapy and truly
comprehend the value of a good session, but
fine art, architecture, and design are also therapeutic.
For me, savoring the thoughtful design goodness
within an inspiring, artfully done renovation
like this traditional modern one from
the Giannettis offers
sweet healing and relief from the
weariness of modern life.

Not everyone will agree with me.
It only feels like sweet healing
when the seeing is seen
through the right lens.
When we gaze upon beauty
with an admiring eye
without the strong desire
to acquire.

The right lens is everything.
To admire without the need to acquire.
*cue Martha*
It’s a good thing.

    Love it. Especially the Swedish furniture. I am wondering what kind of wide board flooring they used throughout all the living spaces and is it all wood or is it wood-look tile in the bathrooms? When we did our house in Maple we couldn't get boards wider than 5 inches. These look much wider than that.

      The Swedish furniture is beyond gorgeous, and isn't this setting just amazing for it? 🙂

    I love this post, as I love Brook and Steve. Everything they do is magical! I have never seen a room or a detail in any of the houses they design that I have not loved.

    I love the mix of modern, classic, vintage, antique etc in this house.

    Have a fabulous week!
