Brooke and Steve Giannetti have created a truly beautiful rustic modern farmhouse in Ojai, California.
After being a devoted fan of their work and pouring over their books, I had to put pen to paper and write a blog post about their home Patina Farm. Not only is the attention to architectural details breathtaking, their curated collection of European antique and vintage furniture and building materials is awe-inspiring.
1. The Garden
This garden has so many places to explore and relax. Planted with roses, lavender, rosemary and ivy, it is lush, cool and inviting. The finishing touches that set this garden apart are the thoughtfully selected planters, French water features, garden finials and Anduze urns.
2. The Kitchen
A wonderful raw timber island is the centerpiece of the light and bright kitchen. Vintage lanterns are the perfect choice to add a rustic touch. A charming collection of copper pots and pans hang above the recessed stove. This is a kitchen that makes entertaining look effortless!
3. The Dining Area
A tastefully decorated space with a strong link to the garden. An antique giltwood mirror sits on the mantelpiece, a charming lustre hangs above the table, and the outdoors are brought in with boxwood topiaries in pots, and finials artistically arranged at the threshold.

4. The Study
Steve Giannetti’s office is a tranquil retreat where he can settle in and get creative (Steve is an Architect). Furnished with European antique and vintage pieces with an emphasis on raw timber and leather. A 1950's leather club chair with a moustache back is a perfect choice for a study or home office.
5. Beautiful storage
Beautifully selected secretaires and armoires have been chosen in place of in built joinery. This makes an everyday ritual special as you turn an antique key to fetch a cup and saucer! Better still, when you move house, you can take these precious pieces with you. They also can be enjoyed for generations in the same family.

6. The Circulation Spaces
Crisp white vaulted plaster ceilings, potted trees, and beautifully curated antique furniture, make these in-between spaces as beautiful as the rooms they lead to.

8. The Dressing Room
This space is a dream, and considering how long it can take to choose an outfit sometimes, this would be a serene place to have one of those “I hate everything in my wardrobe” moments!

10. Re-purposed building materials
Salvaged doors, shutters and roof tiles have been imported from Europe and make stunning joinery features throughout the home, inside and out.
