The world of finish design is limitless, ever-changing and richly complex. Dressings for walls, ceilings, floors, cabinetry, counters and exteriors are crucial to the embodiment of a home’s character. Segreto’ sniche in the world of design inspires their artisans to constantly explore, developing products and treatments that uniquely complements a home’s architecture and interiors.

Segretostone

Our newest invention, SegretoStone is a natural lime based material which hardens to create surfaces sturdy enough for kitchen and bath counters, tub surrounds, dining tables, sinks, fireplaces and outside furniture pieces. Because it starts as a powder and is made into a putty, we can trowel it over many surfaces and then polish it creating a luster that marries well with other elements and transcends the bridge between contemporary, old world and traditional. With 24 signature colors, this surface is more durable than concrete and marble and is easily maintained by reapplying the sealer every year. If it does get damaged it can be spot repaired re-polished and sealed increasing its life and longevity.

PLASTER

Used for thousands of years, plaster creates a rich, timeless interior that gives rooms depth while lending a quiet sophistication to a home’s architecture, art and furnishings. Applied directly over sheetrock, many of today’s tinted, plasters can be installed for a fraction of the cost of yesteryear’s conventional lath method. Plasters instantly enhances the ‘bones’ of a house, some subtle enough to use throughout, while others create dramatic statements perfect for a dining space or powder bath. Water-resistant tadelakt plasters are being used to replace tile and stone in showers. Adding such intrigue and ambiance to any room, plaster carries a special appeal, apparent when seen but difficult to explain with words. At Segreto we are well versed in a broad range of different lime based, natural and synthetic plasters, enabling us to select, install and repair the one which is perfect for you.

WOOD

With today's open floorplans, often times wall finishes remain consistent while built-in cabinetry, paneling, beams and doors give each room that unique element. Quality wood finishes transform raw wood or painted pieces into reclaimed elements; they reinvent sprayed cabinetry into sleek furniture with chic gold or silver detailing; they can even turn a standard planked wood ceiling into repurposed barn wood, or a heavily stained orange wood cabinetry into an aged grayed limed finish. Not only can these treatments greatly enhance a new construction, but they also can reinvent a home's existing elements at a fraction of the cost of ripping out and building anew.

DECORATIVE

Trends in fashion and design are constantly evolving, with past styles reinvented into current and creative applications. The world of decorative finishes is no exception. By stenciling on walls or ceilings the effect of a wall covering is accomplished with no seams. Painted floors can take the place of inlaid stone or rugs to define an area, producing interest and distinction in any room. Ceilings, or molding details can be gold or silver leafed creating an unexpected and dramatic effect. These designs can be cost effectively implemented with paint, customizing the color pallet to fit any décor.

BRICK & STONE

The first true paint was made from lime and used to protect ancient monuments. Today, lime paints and plaster slurries have been brought back to the forefront for both interior and exterior applications. As lime ages, it develops interesting patterns and shadings that bring out the color of the embedded lime. With natural, nontoxic ingredients and a fungicidal effect, the lime covers brick or stone with a coating that absorbs into the masonry without trapping moisture. A wonderful option to totally change brick or stone, lime washing can be done in a way that gives solid, even coverage, or it can be applied more transparently so the tonal variations come through.

MURAL

One of the oldest forms of artistic expression, murals are continually being reinvented in style and execution. Trompe l’oeil was commonly used in centuries past to depict elaborate, realistic scenes by creating the optical illusion that painted architectural elements were real. Over time, full wall murals have become softer, less structured and more organic to complement the open floor plans and soothing, contemporary palettes of today’s design aesthetic. As a truly custom finish that can be personalized with special memories and meaningful motifs, few finishes engender as much enchantment or impact as a mural.
