For years we have been inspired by our next special author, Brooke Giannetti. We have stalked her blog, Velvet And Linen for inspiration, shopped at Giannetti Home, admired the teamwork of her and her husband Steve at Giannetti Architects, and read her book, Patina Style over and over again; always amazed at it's incredible style. One has to wonder if there is anything this magnificent designer can't do? Sweet Salvage was beyond overjoyed when Brooke attended our September 2011 French Market Event as our Special Guest, signing copies of her book Patina Style. She is friendly, beautiful and continues to be a great source of inspiration for the whole Sweet Gang. Kim had a fabulous time vignetting a tribute to Brooke's Patina Style. It is a calming mix of soothing palettes, weathered patinas and farmhouse fresh elements. Brook's book Patina Style will be available this month at Sweet Salvage's Chapter 2 Event.
