I spent a few months last winter working with Brooke and Steven Giannetti on their beautiful book Patina Style as the ghostwriter. Steve is an accomplished architect and Brooke is a terrific interior designer and the work they do together is romantic and serene. They are incredibly clever, repurposing objects in really unique ways–using painter’s drop cloths as upholstery or vintage shutters as art. It’s funny because I’ve written about design now for 15 years and I felt like they had such an incredibly fresh take on design. I really learned so much from them, it’s definitely not the same old ideas repackaged. The book just came out and it’s gorgeous and filled with their great insights. It is actually already being reprinted as it sold out of stock in just a few weeks. I hope you will check it out!
