Striking a balance between elegance and ease, architect-design duo Brooke and Steve Giannetti thrill readers with the latest installment in their Patina series: Patina Homes, featuring designs infused with their signature style marked by a certain je ne sais quoi interwoven throughout.
Subtle, timeless touches mingle with a pared down palette to breathe a distinct and versatile look into each design. Drawing from French roots, the philosophy of this husband-and-wife team emphasizes architecture, blends old with new, and showcases natural textures—all while staying true to the desires and needs of their clients.
Each of the 12 homes highlighted in the book’s 288 delightful pages demonstrates Steve’s brilliant ability to solve unique architectural challenges without sacrificing beauty or functionality. With a variety of styles ranging from classic to contemporary, Brooke and Steve exhibit the adaptability of their Patina style. By incorporating a gentle mix of wood, metal, and stone, they create interiors that foster a calm and comfortable atmosphere. This tranquil tone is enhanced as they find creative ways to unite indoor and outdoor spaces.
Prior to the tours of their various projects, Brooke and Steve offer readers a glimpse into their own home. Those enthralled with the book will want to read their other offerings: Patina Farm, Patina Living, and Patina Style.
Whether read as a stand-alone book or a companion to their other works, Patina Homes will fuel your love for all things French.
