at home with Alfresco

Come and visit Patina Farm, a modern, European-inspired property designed by owners Brooke and Steve Giannetti in Ojai, California. Steve is a world-renowned architect and Brooke is a shop owner, blogger and interior decorator. Their work has appeared in Veranda, Coastal Living, Luxe and The New York Times. With a focus on authentic materials, Brook and Steve went in search of antique fittings and rustic beams with rich patinas to add warmth to the house's clean glass, luminous white plaster walls and steel elements. By choosing items with a time-warn finish and stunning craftsmanship the house has an understated elegance that celebrates the good life and the art of living well.
