Patina Home and Garden Photos in Leiper’s Fork

If you have admired the work of Steve and Brooke Giannetti for many years, then I bet you would love to visit Leiper’s Fork and Patina Home and Garden. Today’s your lucky day, because I’m taking you with me and sharing photos! We loved the wares, mood, location, and aesthetic of the shop. We also enjoyed the opportunity to chat with the Giannettis in October when the colorful trees, autumn temperatures, and Southern hospitality warmed us to the core.

Leiper’s Fork: Patina Home and Garden Photos

Patina Home & Garden (4149 Old Hillsboro Road, Leiper’s Fork, TN 37064) is a store in an amazing old structure near shops, restaurants (visit Fox & Locke!), and art galleries.

You may recall that after building and nurturing their dream home in Ojai (Patina Farm), the Giannettis decided to part with it and begin a new adventure in Tennessee.

Steve and Brooke Giannetti Opened Patina Home in 2022

When I spoke with Steve Giannetti on our visit, he said Patina Meadow (located 10 minutes from the shop) will also be open to the public. They are truly committed to building community and sharing beauty. I can’t wait to visit someday!

By the way, poor Brooke must have felt ambushed when I showed up! I am a not-shy Chicago girl who boldly greeted her refined self, and of course, she had no clue who this patina-fan was! She embraced me just the same after I mentioned the blog, and what a joy to connect in person. (Brooke, should you be reading: I apologize for not giving fair warning before our visit – I suspected Patina’s crew would likely be swamped with the store’s opening.)

It is only when I travel to places beyond the North that I discover I am so direct. While introverted, I have an outgoing personality and never meet a stranger. 🙂

Brooke shares Patina Meadow’s progress, meditative glimpses of life on the farm, and their journey to a new hometown on her popular site Velvet and Linen.

Don’t you love the mix of incredible Swedish antiques, new dishes, vintage watering cans, and linens?

Handmade Pottery, Antiques, and Home Goods

If you have followed Brooke’s blog or IG, you may recall she began creating handmade pottery pieces. What a delight to see them in person, and I must tell you that photos of the pieces do not fully capture their beauty. They are delicate, understated yet utterly lovely and will take your breath away.

Handmade little saucers, bowls, and cups by Brooke Giannetti live inside that amazing corner cabinet with cheerful blue interior.

Since I don’t have the privilege of seeing so many fine Swedish antiques in person, it was quite a treat to see painted chests, cupboards, desks, baskets, chairs and more.

Aren’t those old baskets enviable?

Gathering Spot for Conversation and Music

One of the priorities Brooke and Steve set for the shop is community. They hope their business will become a destination for connection. And you’ll sense this even if you simply peek in the front window of the shop since you’ll glimpse this gathering spot.

You never know who you may hear performing inside. The shop is near Nashville after all, and this area near the front of the store is the perfect cozy space for sweet acoustic serenades.

Patina Home & Garden Has Furniture & Textiles from Patina Farm!

For fans of the Giannetti’s former property, Patina Farm, multiple European country antiques and textiles from that farmhouse are for sale here! Seeing them (and touching them!) in person was a thrill.

I recall seeing these framed artworks displayed in Brooke’s home in the past – what a pleasure to see them up close.

Beautiful wooded property in Leiper’s Fork feels like a restful escape while shopping.

One of the things you will love about the Giannetti’s apparel is how the pieces work wonderfully together, and the colors mix beautifully. You can truly invest in a time capsule wardrobe that will be wearable across seasons for many years because of its high quality.

Rustic Furniture & Decorations With Timeless Style

There are plenty of investment furniture and decor pieces inside the shop, and it is worth noting that there is nothing trendy I noticed inside. You’ll have to mosey elsewhere for signs proclaiming “laundry” or “bless this mess.” Hahahahaha.

As a result, no chance for worry about wares that could seem irrelevant or dated in a few years. In fact, country antiques are becoming more scarce and only increasing in value.

How did I miss that pillow in the basket under the table! I did buy the big chunk of blush pink lemon-infused dish soap, cedar stand, and scrub brush. They look great at our farm sink and get the job done!

European antiques like these sconces decorate the shop and add elegance amid the rustic.

I could hardly believe the excellent condition of the sconces (above) in the glass cabinet behind the register! Didn’t need to ask the price as I can imagine, but I would gladly give those beauties a good home if a money tree springs up in our yard!

Handmade and One of a Kind Items in the Giannetti’s Shop

I visited Patina Home & Garden twice on our visit, but I still didn’t examine every pretty item. So many beautiful handmade wares including candles, kitchen essentials, textiles, art, and dishes.

    The next time I am in Franklin I will go see both stores. I hope Brooke got excellent coaching from locals on what Tennessee people will buy. It is not California. Big adjustment. I lived in CA also in two different cities. Generally speaking TN people will only buy if it is on sale at a huge discount, otherwise they window shop. I live in a TN city which is even harder to sell high end items than the Franklin/Leipers area. I hope they also know that Leipers Fork sidewalks are rolled up in the winter = no shoppers until Spring when the tourists arrive.
    I loved that building when it was an antique shop several years ago. The woman who ran it was great and the store fixtures were all antique and amazing. So glad you got to go on this trip and take us along.

      Hi Colleen. Thanks for visiting. Patina Home is beautiful, and there were only smiles from tons of paying customers while I was there. All sorts of affordable wares to buy so a really great balance with valuable antiques mixed in. The curation is just divine. I can imagine the shop doing great online even if traffic is slower in winter. I remember this location too before – when it was Serenite Maison and so beautiful. 🙂
