Patina Style

My copy of Patina Style by Brooke Giannetti & Steve Giannetti, arrived today. I tried to pick up a copy in New York the day it was released, but they had not landed on the book store shelves yet. So when I returned back home I ordered a copy on-line (chapters.ca) of the creative book that is penned by the Creators of Velvet and Linen. Canadian bloggers/ readers visits at chapters.ca.

I know for sure that I snatched the parcel away from the receptionist today when she brought it to me.................. just a tad bit excited.

There are five generous chapters that cover every aspect of the design style we have all fallen in love with. You know that the pages which are about to be revealed will be incredible, when the first chapter is boldly titled 'Embracing Imperfections'.

I am devouring the pages that are filled with beautiful images and defined  explanations on the Giannetti's design style. Already I have revisited one particular page several times : Trim and Molding.
If you wonder how and where Steve and Brooke get their incredible style sense from visit here ::  Velvet & Linen. Brooke posted a wonderful page recently that describes Steve's family background in ornamental plaster.

If you haven't ordered or picked up your copy of Patina Style....... well, what are you waiting for.

Congratulations to Brooke and Steve on your new book. I love it!


  1. I had pre-ordered from Amazon and was thrilled when it arrived a few weeks ago. It is one of the most beautiful books I have ever owned. I need to do a post on it next week...I think everyone needs it in their design book collection!
    Have a fabulous week

  2. Thank you for Katherine for letting your readers know about Patina Style!
