The serene modern farmhouse Patina Farm in Ojai, California

Scoring the Patina Farm look from the Giannetti dream team…easy as 1-2-3, oui? NON! Ha! Let’s face it. My own humble house, however peaceful, doesn’t approach the grandeur and artistry of the serene modern farmhouse in Ojai, California, Patina Farm. Also. I must be out of my mind to even suggest we try to emulate elements of this exquisite European inspired modern farmhouse.

But, c’mon. Being out of my mind is not necessarily the worst thing if it means I am tapping into heartfulness. Whether imagining how to interpret a design style (like one of my favs: European Country inspired modern farmhouse decor), reflecting on the spiritual journey, or dreaming up ways we might create more peaceful living at home, heartfulness can be a valuable commodity.

Selecting and shopping for home modern farmhouse decor pieces with European flavor is the simple part, yes? More challenging? Integrating new pieces with your existing architecture, lighting, furniture, and decor.

Even lofty decor challenges are achievable though when you approach the tasks with a full heart, a calm quietude, and a hopeful perspective. Those three guiding principles consistently undergird all I attempt do as I spotlight inspiration on Hello Lovely and point you to lovely helpful discoveries.

Today’s inspiration is from Giannetti Home (have you followed my Giannetti Home Pinterest Board yet?), and my favorite project of theirs to date: Patina Farm. If you do not yet own the book, by all means – get your copy immediately! Viewing images of the Giannettis’ masterpiece on Pinterest, your phone, and even this blog is lovely, but when you experience the photography (by Lisa Romerein) and text on thick, luscious book pages, it’s a uniquely exquisite experience all its own. Trust.

Here’s what Brooke Giannetti says about the antique stone sink below: “The antique stone sink that we discovered in Belgium has a new home in Steve’s office bathroom. Foot pedals control the water that flows from the vintage faucet. We wanted the zinc backsplash and countertop to mellow in color, so we left the sheets of zinc outside and watered them with a hose every day for several months during construction.” Isn’t that brilliant for creating patina style!?!

3. Pare Down Luxuriously

The inspiration: Steve and Brooke Giannetti’s master bedroom is so thoughtfully rendered with every architectural detail and decor nuance carefully considered. Pieces in their bedroom have been collected over the years, and I recall Steve mentioning to me that the room truly reflects a mix of high and low furnishings: one of the antique tables used bedside cost precious little.

The practical take-away: A serene modern farmhouse style bedroom is successfully achieved with a light touch and symmetry. Part of the airiness is the lack of baseboard and window trim…hence, the “modern” factor in “modern farmhouse.” No busy prints or bold swaths of color in here. Soft aqua and chambray blues feel natural with all the white and linen tones.

Bonus: If you have followed Brooke Giannetti’s Velvet and Linen blog over the years, you’ll know she favors Aidan Gray lighting for many of her designs…check out these beautiful lighting options from Aidan Gray for your own home!

Brooke Giannetti writes this in Patina Farm, “Steel doors frame the view of the garden and provide access to the porch. Wood screens pocket into the walls adjacent to the doors, while a small operable panel allows for night-time ventilation. Draperies pocket inside the thickness of the walls, providing the maximum connection to the gardens during the day.”

Here’s what Brooke Giannetti says about her powder room (below) at Patina Farm: “The jewel box of a powder room, with its combination of rustic and refined as well as indoor/outdoor pieces, quickly tells the story of the entire house. A marble sink from Belgium is suspended on the wall, with a fountain spout repurposed as a faucet. All of the pipes are hidden and can be accessed from the kitchen pantry, which is behind the sink wall. A detailed eighteenth-century gild barometer is paired with a rustic stone demilune next to the sink.”

    its so peaceful and those goats totally capture my heart! i just want to move it 😉
    its one of my favorite parts of the country and could move there in a heartbeat…

    • April 6, 2018 / 7:59 am

      Yes! The Giannettis have truly tapped into something special, and I’m so grateful they share all of the details! 🙂

    I could happily live here the rest of my days! I adore their style.

    When I attempt to “get the look” my mini-budget strategy is: 😉
    1. Study the photographs to get the ideas
    2. Head for thrift stores to find things I can use ‘as is’ or paint to get the look
    3. Get fabric to make pillows, etc. to make the look.

    Even on really small budgets, photos you’ve shared of such lovely homes are truly inspirational! <3

      I love your frugal style and wholeheartedly agree that it begins with inspiration, a keen eye, and a creative spirit! Thanks for adding to the beauty, Connie. 🙂
