What a privilege to peek inside Giannetti-designed homes (surely commissioned by movers, shakers, celebrities, and dignitaries!) in California and beyond and to spy Steve Giannetti’s artistry.

Brooke and Steve Giannetti

The architect’s ability to creatively balance elements of classicism, livability, and modernity is truly awe inspiring.

The Giannettis favor a palette of chalky tones as well as timeworn patina (like that of painted Swedish antiques!).

Brooke Giannetti’s gentle, sunny, intuitive approach to understated yet elegant interiors has been winning over fans for many years. Her favored palette is JUST so positively soothing.

Heart-stopping Interiors Photography by Lisa Romerein

Patina Homes welcomes us graciously with stunning photography (mostly by Lisa Romerein) and also secrets behind 12 character-rich projects from Giannetti Homes’ portfolio.

Tour a modern house in the desert as well as a West Coast showstopper which captures the essence and presence of a memorable South of France Bastide.

Let’s peek inside so I can show you what I mean…

Serene and sophisticated European inspired bedroom with aqua and neturals - Giannetti Home. #giannettihome #bedroomdecor #interiordesign #europeancountry #frenchfarmhouse #patinastyle
Certainly a romantic interior moment!

I am sort of hopelessly in love with their Creekside (Malibu) project! What lucky homeowners!

Could this bespoke kitchen be any more understated, elegant, and warm? All of the materials are rich and timeless, yet the space isn’t showing off. It is built to endure.

So much to admire in the Giannetti’s Creekside Malibu project indeed!

Breathtaking, timeless, and tranquil bathroom design with natural materials, European antiques, and bespoke design from Giannetti Home. #bathroomdesign #europeancountry #sophisticatedstyle #brookegiannetti

I love this bath so much! And aren’t the gilded moments a sweet surprise? I spy a certain Darlana pendant that I bought for a space in my own home (stay tuned, real life renovation is slow going when you only have a few hours each week after work!).

The staircase is in this home is so memorable. I admire the iron work and the delicate profile of it.

Are you dreaming about spaces where you too can add patina style? I’m noticing details like aged weathered antiques paired with pristine white walls, linen, and fresh blooms.

Patina Farm’s Palette

For those of us who have followed the Giannettis for eons (since the dawn of Brooke’s Velvet and Linen blog’s first posts!), we know the palette by heart.

Incredible examples of Swedish antiques.

Inspiring the Authors at Home on the Farm

While these glorious creatures don’t appear alongside the interiors in the new book, you’ll always find Patina Farm’s stars gracing Giannetti social media feeds!

Wait. It’s a real farm? Not just a house built to suggest a European farmhouse?

    Michele! You ARE AMAZING! Such BEAUTY Indeed! I am going to order those books, ASAP! Do they actually mention the paint colour palettes used? I wonder what that Gorgeous off-white colour seen in those romantic bedrooms, kitchen even bathroom is? It seems to be the exact same off-white! Absolutely DREAMY!

      The Giannettis create the most beautiful homes I have ever seen! In most cases the reason we don’t hear about paint colors is because the walls are either plaster or covered with a plaster-like finish such as kal-kote which the Giannettis have used on walls at Patina Farm (thin layer right over drywall and no paint required).

      Those were the days back when it was just a few of us in blogland, and everything was friendlier and more accessible. I’m excited about TN too. I have spent time in the area where they are building, and it’s amazing and so beautiful. We have talked about retiring there so who knows? Maybe I’ll be a farmhand. 🙂
