Today I want to tell you about a husband and wife design team and Architecture firm that I discovered probably two or three years ago. They are California based Brooke and Steve Gianetti. They have a blog entitled "Velvet & Linen" (http://brookegiannetti.typepad.com/). Their website is located at (http://www.giannettiarchitects.com/). I am a follower of their blog and you will see it listed here under "Blogs I Like". Brooke and Steve recently released their newest book, "Patina Style" which is for purchase at the Barnes & Noble page (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/patina-style-steve-giannetti/1100232598?ean=9781423622536&itm=1&usri=patina%2bstyle) or the Amazon page (http://www.amazon.com/dp/1423622537). Of course you can also order a copy through the Velvet & Linen blog and there are instructions there on how to do that.
I was so pleased to receive my copy of this book yesterday. It arrived so beautifully packaged.
I almost didn't want to unwrap it. But I knew that what was inside the wrapping was equally as fabulous, so I decided to move ahead.
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
I loved the inscription. The fact that they both signed it individually made it all the more special.
A turn of the inscription page and it was immediately evident that I was in for a real treat as I made my way through the book.
After I made my way through for the first time, I found a promiment spot to display it.
It is a delightful book with lots of wonderful pictures to give you inspiration in your own interior designing quest. I look forward to referring to it many times in the future when I am looking for just the right thing for a table or an idea to give a finishing touch to a room. Thank you, Brooke and Steve, for your inspiration and the heartfelt words. I wish you great success in all your endeavors.
