Patina Farm and a Giveaway!!!


All photographs by Lisa Romerein from  Patina Farm  by Brooke Giannetti and Steve Giannetti, reprinted by permission of Gibbs Smith.


You, of course, know my friend Brooke Giannetti, the gifted interior designer behind
Velvet & Linen fame and her uber-talented husband, architect Steve Giannetti.
Yes, of course you do, how could you not?!!
I found Brooke's blog Velvet & Linen right after I found Joni at Cote de Texas when I first discovered design blogs back in 2008!  In fact, it is because of Brooke and a post she did on my blog on Velvet & Linen right after I started writing about our renovation of the farmhouse that I first developed a following of readers, which in turn encouraged me to continue writing about our journey.  So, in essence Brooke is the reason you are here reading my blog!  She gave me my blog-wings and I can not thank her enough for that.  Both Brooke and Steve were so generous and gracious with helping me figure out several very important details around the house during our renovation and for that I will be forever grateful.  They are both such lovely, kind people.

I can honestly say that the only home that I have ever seen (that could make me walk away from the farmhouse;) where I could walk right in, not change a single element or piece of furniture and live happily ever after (with Dan and the girls of course;) is Brook and Steve's Ojai home!
The house and property is pure magic.
 Watching their progress over the last several years... from selling their gorgeous home in Santa Monica, (which was the subject of their first book  Patina Style  HERE) to buying land in Ojai, to breaking ground on the house, to Brooke discussing all the design elements, to watching every detail of the landscaping and viewing Steve's renderings of what they wanted the property and house to be has been a riveting journey for their love of a house.  That they created a home and property that looks like it has been there for 100 years is nothing short of amazing.

Brooke and Steve's new book, Patina Farm is a beautiful collaboration of the duo's love, passion and talent to create "home."  I have savored every moment of reading the book; taking in the story of the decisions, the design elements, the choices made and why they made them makes the book a wonderful, informative read.  This is a book I will use over and over again for inspiration.
Take a look at some of the magic for yourself....






























 ...pure magic!

This book is a must-have for any design library.  I have a signed book (which I love);  you can get your own signed copy at Giannetti Home
HERE.
or to get an unsigned copy

  14. I think you, Brooke and Steve have exquisite taste and love everything you do. However, that is not what impresses me the most. It is your shared love of your pets and the environment that are more important to me. In truth, anyone can be or claim to be a designer or decorator, but not all have the passion for our surroundings, wildlife and our dear pets and incorporate that passion into their designs.

  15. I have been reading Steve and Brooke's blog for as long as I have been reading yours and Joni's; can't remember which one came first, but I am happy I found all of you. Your blogs have given me so much inspiration, information and visual pleasure; I am truly grateful for all of the time, effort and expertise you all so generously share.

    I loved Patina Style and I recently bought Patina Home (so there is no need to include me in the giveaway). I just wanted to take this opportunity to say how fabulous the new book and the Giannetti's new Ojai home are. Readers: If you aren't the lucky winner, buy it anyway. You will love it. Truly. I -- like you, Joan -- could move right into this one and be perfectly content with home and garden. XOXO, Victoria

  16. This book looks so nice and the pictures are gorgeous! I'd love to read and learn from this book and a signed copy would be such a treasure!

  17. I have always dreamt of living on a farm, Brooke & Steve's book makes that dream come to life. Like you, I could move in without changing a single thing. In addition to the talent both share, they seem to be genuinely nice people.
    If I don't win, I'll definitely be buying Patina Farm. I love and re-read Patina Style all the time.

  40. I have designed a home similar to this in my dreams so many times - the lower roof height and pitch, all one floor, ageless and welcoming and so much more. When they built this home, I followed along with so much joy for them, knowing that country life is good for the soul. I have their first book and of course would love to add this to my design library.

  46. Patina Style was one of my first design book purchases. It was the book that gave a name to my love for simple natural elements that we live with and that bear the wear of use and life -- patina! This is the heart and soul of all my home decisions. I love the connection Steve and Brooke bring between indoors and outside. We have been slow to renovate our home, and Patina Farm might just be the inspiration to move us forward.

  50. I too, like many of the other comments that have been posted, have been following Velvet and Linen, since i started to read blogs, several years ago.

  53. Recently my husband and I have chosen to unplug .. No Cable, limited internet, no Wifi. Catching up on blogs here at a local coffee shop with WiFi �� right now. This journey won't last long.

  57. What a lovely opportunity Joan, thank you so much. I have had the lovely privilege of meeting Brooke and Steve on more than one occasion. Their design studio Giannetti Home.

  66. Your home is definitely more my style and have enjoyed your blog so much since I discovered you. The Patina Farm is certainly a dream of a place and that would be such a lovely place to live. It is so elegantly simple and not over the top which makes it so inviting and seem like people may actually live there. Great offer of a giveaway which would be wonderful to win.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I just heard about this couple last week! I'm so intrigued to learn more about them and their beautiful home. I can see how you would love what they do as you are style kin.
    I too, am from Texas and had the wonderful privilege of living in CT for 15 years in a house that was built in 1845. I now reside in the Richmond, VA area. But New England is my soul's home and always will be. When I stumbled onto your blog, I cried, it brought up such longing in me. (The cover of the fall issue of LL Bean does that to me, too.) But it also satisfied, something, as well. I too, am a lover of good design, old things, and, of course, dogs. So I thank you for being there, and for sharing your love of NE and home. As for the Giannettis, I would love to become acquainted with them through a slow perusal of their inspired book. Thanks for the give away! yoliegb@gmail.com

  73. I have followed your site and theirs - and both bring me great pleasure and joy. Isn't that what life should be - a succession of pleasures and joys? Well, we all know that a 'little' rain must fall' and there are sad times and catastrophes - all those dark moments that we can't control.

    Your blog and Velvet and Linen are two of my little joys.

    I thank both of you for that and would welcome the opportunity to win the book - especially knowing that it came from your site/blog!

  88. I would love to own this book for myself, but this copy would actually be given as a gift to a friend on her birthday this year. We have traditionally given one another beautiful books that inspire us to move toward our dreams, and my friend dreams of one day owning a lovely farmhouse to be enjoyed by her and her husband , and the many generations that will follow! What better inspiration than the Giannettis’ home! Fortunately, she is a good friend, so I know she won’t mind if I peruse the book before wrapping it up for her birthday!!!!

  91. Joan! I have been following Patina Farm since they were doing the site work on their place. Their standards are beyond my financial reach by a galaxy. Nonetheless, there are ideas to be mined, and most of my stuff already has a ton of patina. Truly though, I would love to pour over their book. You and I have communicated via email about the old piano legs we salvaged, but I don't want to put my email here for all to see. I guess that leaves me out of the running? Have a wonderful spring. I hope to run into you at Walkers Farm this season. We haunt the same places: Brimfield, Manchester by the Sea, The Bower Bird. etc. I hope you will get back to blogging more often--I miss your regular posts, but I know topics are hard to come by. Maybe you need to renovate another house.
    All the best to you and yours. Annie

Sometimes just putting to use someone else's fresh thoughts and ideas goes a long way making your own place lovely. Thanks for the chance to win the book!! clovergirl1@embarqmail.com

  118. I fell in love with their beautiful home when I first found them as they were just adding the landscape. I love everything about their home and gardens! Their setting is just gorgeous and it has been fascinating to watch it grow with their gardens and their animals! I am especially inspired by their blending of their home into the landscape and gardens! I would love a copy of their beautiful book! Thank you!

  122. I'm trying very hard to stick to our budget as we pursue our own love of a house...but would I ever love to receive a copy of Patina Farm!! As a recovering blog junkie, you, the Gianettis, and Lauren Liess are the three blogs I still check in with regularly for inspiration and a moment of zen.
    Joan, when will you write a book? When overwhelmed by the decision-making process, I trusted your taste and used your floor stain recipe, a few of your wall colors, and painted the ceilings in pearl finish... and I love it all! Thank you!

  132. I too could move right into Patina Farm! I would just take my toothbrush and the clothes on my back. I'm sure I would need a whole new wardrobe of California clothes and a few bottles of California wine. The house is perfection!
    Of course, I could moved right into your house too! I have followed your homes transformation from the beginning. It is warm and inviting. I love your "girls".

  138. Hi Joan,
    I've been following along on Instagram. I've been inspired by you and your love and attention to detail for your home. A few months ago my husband and I made our dream come true when we purchased a home in CA. Inspiration from you and from others like The Gianetti's are helping us create the home we've always wanted to live in. It's a process that I'm not trying to rush because we have the rest of our lives here. I hope you'll consider us for the giveaway. Thank you! Christine
