I hope you all had a great week! Steve and I just got back from Palm Desert. Steve had a site meeting for a project, and I had a fun time with my Mom. Steve and I spent the night at the La Quinta Inn. The original buildings were built in the 1920's, so the architecture is fantastic...
I shared some of my photos from our weekend on Instagram, which has become one of my new obsessions. I've started to share quick pictures of my client's home, Patina Farm site meetings, and anything that is beautiful and inspiring. I'm "velvetandlinen", if you want to follow me.
This week's Patina Farm update is about palette. As all of our materials have started to arrive at the site, I've become the palette police. Steve and I selected finishes that all have a pale chalky tone.
The roof tiles and the wall stone both arrived and look beautiful.
During our site meeting this week, we laid out all of the materials. After many production samples, our French White Oak floors arrived pale and golden, like the first sample we chose.
Unfortunately, our French limestone arrived way too pink and shiny. We are now having to sandblast the stone and figure out a way to tint or acid wash each piece so that it matches our original sample :(
We tried putting tea on the stone sample on the left, but ultimately it didn't work. We will be trying some other options tomorrow (The original sample is the tiny square in the middle of this picture).
