Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patina Style celebrates the beauty that the passage of time brings to the things your life. The antique and imperfect and the slightly worn combined with natural materials and a subtle color palette create a look that is both timeless and fresh.

Brooke and Steve Giannetti embrace the life in things: a newel post worn smooth by touch: a leather trunk bearing scratches of global travel; velvet that is faded over time, silver that is subtly tarnished or a flowerpot wearing a covering of moss. This is the essence of the Patina design style.

The Giannettis reveal how they create the look, repurposing salvaged objects, bringing outdoor pieces inside, turning old treasures into something better than new. Lavish photography and a clear design philosophy will inspire you to see the beauty in everyday objects and to develop your own patina style.

Book News Annotation:

This large, colorful volume on interior design philosophy explores what the authors call "patina style," the use of old, worn, and natural texture textiles, furniture, and accessories in modern or traditional rooms to communicate a sense of time, back story, and belonging in residential spaces. The work discusses the collection and use of found and used objects in design, the use of architectural elements such as old doors and windows, antiques and furniture, accent pieces, and the development of indoor/outdoor spaces. Artistic, full-color photographs are included throughout, clearly demonstrating key concepts in this unified design style and philosophy. The Giannettis own an architecture design and landscape firm in southern California. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
