Patina Style celebrates the beauty that the passage of time brings to the things in your life. The antique and imperfect, 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 Patina 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.
