Read an Excerpt


To create the Patina Palette, we start with subtle colors that elicit a purely emotional response and then we layer in real, honest, and vintage materials that become even more exquisite with time. Intriguing and weathered colors, finishes and materials work together to create a mix of rustic and refined. We draw our palette from the landscape, as well as objects we love, to create a soothing refuge from the frenetic world. The thoughtful combination of understated natural hues and textures in our palette provides a beautiful backdrop for your life.

We like to ground larger pieces in natural fabrics and neutral colors.
