Two Entrepreneurial Woman-Two Creative Homes!

Hi Friends!  We have been inspired by the break and have been working on some new projects at Segreto!!!

What Segreto’s Been Up to!

We have been busy with so many fun projects that I thought it was time to share! I have had so much fun seeing some of the homes we have worked on, furnished!! This is a stately, established home where the bones are amazing and the homeowners just wanted an update. The original moldings and floors remained but the walls were coated with plaster in a soothing warm tone. Before, the moldings were white, but toning them to the plaster put focus on the architecture and floors and really ...

I Love That Sample!!! Where Will it Go?

I was trying to get a bit ahead of my blog writing and stumbled onto a post I had started in 2011! I had so much fun looking back at how some of our techniques have evolved and especially how my house has changed over the years!! I thought you would too... You've probably heard the old saying that a cobbler doesn't have shoes. Well, that doesn't apply to me. In my case, a finisher definitely has finishes!! If you look at the "My Home" section of this blog, you can see that no space has been ...

A Week with Segreto!

I hope everyone has had a great week! I am so happy to share a few pics of a house we did where I happened to be over while they were moving in furniture! I love seeing the transformation and thought you would, too! Best of all, it was so fun catching up with my friend Ohara Davies-Gaetano from California! She was the designer on the project and has been published in Veranda, so I knew it would be AMAZING!! She does look like a California beauty, doesn't she? Notice on the staircase we ...

What Segreto Did Last Week!

It is really fun to go back and see what rooms we have worked on! This time, it is certainly a varied mix!!! We have really been working hard to come up with some unique and contemporary new finishes!! I am in love with how this one we tested in my media bath turned out. The dimensional, soft graphic we created with by combining metallics and plaster offers a to-die-for textural combination!!! Imagine all the color combos that could be created! This home was a sentimental one for ...
