Patina Living & Loving: European Farmhouse Style

Patina Living & Loving: European Farmhouse Style is my tribute to the third book in the Patina trilogy by Brooke and Steve Giannetti! If you loved Patina Farm, this volume goes deeper. Inside, you’ll discover more than design savvy eye candy or lovely garden inspiration. Warmth, heart-fullness, and hopefulness (so often in short supply within the design world and culture in general!) are blooming too.

Let’s re-visit this review I shared in 2019 since I already know how many of you admire the work of the Giannettis. The designers followed their hearts, dreamed big, and allowed an adventure to shape them into something new.

Patina Farm is a Real Farm

If you are a longtime follower of Brooke Giannetti’s Velvet and Linen, you likely devoured construction chronicles of Patina Farm as well animal adoption updates. Goats, donkeys, sheep, cows and also chickens bring fullness of life and love to the landscape.

      I suspect they are custom – and you can direct any questions about the decor at Patina Farm to giannettihome.com. Thanks for reading. 🙂

    I don’t remember ever seeing such beauty. My heart is singing. So much peaceful beauty to take in. In the Patina Farm living room there is a delicious leather chair with pockets. I would love information on that chair. Is it custom? Or purchased? Either way, I need it.

    Thank you Michele for your help!!

      I so agree! This home has been captivating me for years. Not sure about the exact chair since the Giannettis do design/sell furniture here: https://giannettihome.com/collections/all-furnishings – I’m sure you can contact them with questions. Tell them I sent you and fall in love with their site, GiannettiHome!
