Patina Homes by Steve Giannetti,Brooke Giannetti Pdf

Patina style imbues Giannetti client homes in a variety of architectural styles.

His materials palette consists of wood, metal, and stone. His color palette is a chalky patina. Twelve varied homes—ranging from a modern desert glass box and a beachfront contemporary to a historic East Coast farmhouse and a Provencal-style home in California—show how Steve has used these themes to solve unique architectural challenges.

Patina Style by Brooke Giannetti Pdf

The Giannettis have developed a home design style that embraces age, patina, weathered and worn surfaces, and rough surfaces. Patina Style is a color palette, a romance with subtlety, an attraction to natural materials and architectural details. It is at once old-world, contemporary, and mildly industrial. Patina Style gives insight into materials choices, methods and treatments that result in spaces that celebrate beauty in the old, the imperfect, the slightly roughed-up.

Patina Modern by Chris Mitchell,Pilar Guzmán Pdf

From their first New York City apartment together, along the way through a classic six, a Brooklyn brownstone, and houses in the Hamptons, Pilar Guzmán and Chris Mitchell have developed a unique design sensibility—a mix of worn antiques and sleek modern pieces, and a limited palette of materials—that they’ve coined “patina modern.” It’s a look that’s both timely and timeless, as these interiors only get better with age. The pair’s homes have been featured in design magazines from Architectural Digest to the Martha Stewart Living, and in books including Artisan’s own Restoring a House in the City. Now, for the first time, they’ve decoded the secrets to their covetable style, developed over the course of 20 years and six renovation and design projects. Patina Modern will teach readers how to replicate the couple’s look in their own homes through home tours, deep dives on their go-to materials, spotlights on the most influential designers and pieces that inform their approach, and a robust resources section. It will inspire readers to identify things they love, and give them the tools and guiding principles they need to put those pieces together in beautiful, “patina modern” spaces.

Perfect Imperfect by Karen McCartney,Sharyn Cairns,Glen Proebstel Pdf

If you have read The House that Pinterest Built, Smart Spaces, The Alchemy of Things, or Elements of Style you're going to love Perfect Imperfect. Wabi-sabi and new creative interior design expressions: Perfect Imperfect is a stunning collection of homes and studios of creatives from all over the world, with thought-provoking text by Karen McCartney and stunning visuals by Sharyn Cairns and Glen Proebstel. Perfect Imperfect takes as its founding principle the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi. Wabi-Sabi advocates the beauty to be found in imperfection, impermanence and the authentic. Importantly this is done without losing sight of the benefits of living in the 21st century; where designers are merging digital technology with the handmade, rethinking how to use space and accommodating the natural world. Creating a new interior design vocabulary: As the collaborative process for creating Perfect Imperfect involved working across continents, the authors created a list of words and phrases that define how to curate the work they include in their stunning book. Their new interior design and interior decorating vocabulary includes terms such as mutability, irregularity, unfinished and incomplete, void, the effects of accident, unpretentious, simplicity, contrasts, and Leonard Koren's idea that 'beauty can be coaxed out of ugliness'. The new words and phrases introduced by the authors define the book's visual sections: - Spirit of Nature - Strange Beauty - Mark of Hand - Deep Shadow - Weathering & Decay - And, Incomplete and Irregular A beautiful, inspirational decorative book: Perfect Imperfect is a celebration of accident, curation, collection, hesitation, collaboration, reuse, reimagining and true originality. It explores an established aesthetic in a new way and embraces current design objects alongside well-worn ones; featuring interior settings that mix comfort, design and an off-beat beauty.
