“Patina Farm, upon first impression, appears to have been on the property for years. Stunning 300-year-old Valley Oaks frame the house creating picturesque views. Winding gravel paths are lined with boxwoods, lavender and lambs ear. Then you discover they built the European Inspire house from scratch just a few short years ago. Adding elements they fell in love with from their travels. Patina Farm is an absolute delight to the design eye. Brooke explains that she is into the small details or moments, while Steve takes on the big picture. The combination of this team works!”

Good Reads: Patina Farm

by Brooke Giannetti & Steve Giannetti

Anyone who has been to my house knows I am a collector of Design Books. I pick up vintage ones from thrift stores and at any given time there are at least five on my wishlist. So when my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said Patina Farm. He stared at me puzzled and I explained it was a book. Sadly for him, he had to find something else since my wonderful mother in law snatched it up weeks before to gift to me. Upon opening it I had to quickly thumb through a few pages and then get back to being social with family. The truth was I just couldn’t wait to get home and read every word on how the Giannetti’s achieved this beautiful home they named Patina Farm.

Brooke explains that she is into the small details or moments, while Steve takes on the big picture. The combination of this team works! In her blog Velvet & Linen, which is how I discovered her, Brooke writes about the process of planning their lives in this home. Steve an architect by day would paint, Brooke would garden and care for mini farm animals. So Patina Farm was on its way from sketches to construction.
