Marburger Farm Antique Show, Fall 2015!

http://segretoThe start of fall is a joyous occasion for me each year. The trees are turning, the holiday festivities are being planned, and the Marburger Farm Antique Show begins! It is one of my very favorite events to attend!! I am so excited to return to Round Top, Texas with my second coffee table design book Segreto Style — for a book signing on Wednesday, September 30 at 9 am-2 pm!! Not only do I totally enjoy meeting and reconnecting with everyone who comes up to look at the book and talk to me, but also I love re-connecting with the 350 dealers from around the globe!!

And, of course, I love to shop ‘til I drop at Marburger!!  Last year I was lucky enough to score a pair of these mirrors for my home’s soon-to-be remolded master bath – AMAZING!!!!

Segreto Secrets

They became the perfect his and her mirrors in my master bathroom! Thank you to Art and Antique Hunter  for such a special offering!

The thrill of the discovery at Marburger is so much fun: from French, to English, to early Texas or mid-century modern! It is all there and it is displayed to perfection!! Segreto is so fortunate to work is many homes where these treasures serve as the inspiration for designing a room! Sometimes the antique finds are the jewelry-like accents in a space! The results inspire a game called “I Spy from Marburger Farm”!! Let’s play….

Segreto Secrets

Centered around an unusual, tree trunk-like sink bowl, this powder bath merges rustic, modern and antique elements! Waxing the same plaster finish used throughout the home dressed up the room and differentiated it from the other areas.

This home is featured in its entirety in Segreto Style.

This powder bath, is blanketed in a gypsum plaster and is completed by a one-of-a-kind antique light fixtures!!

Reminiscent of centuries-old European manors, these walls suggest a worn look by allowing an unevenness in the application. Segreto stenciled over textured sheet rock mud.  I spy some sconces… discovered at Marburger!

The dining room of this European-style home, situated off the entrance, features a wine cellar through those antique doors. Continuing the plaster tone from the entry allows the fabric colors to set the mood. The antique panels, hung on the back wall are from (you guessed it) !!

The newly constructed beams in this master retreat were distressed and aged by Segreto to add character to the ceiling. Look how spectacular the antique chandelier and sconces, look in this beautiful space!!

 The front  door of my home, (brick newly lime washed) is flanked by antique metal “planters”. What were these finds in their original form? Ice molds!!
