Follow Segreto this Week – Segretostone, Murals, Painted Floors and More!
Hi Friends! Wow there is a lot going on in the world and our country right now. I hope you all are feeling well, safe and stocked up. I know so many have canceled their travel plans, including my daughter whose bachelorette trip was for next week. Keep in mind your older loved ones. My Mom and second Mom (Aunt Gayle) who live at a retirement community have been asked to stay in their rooms. They are stir crazy and feeling depressed. Reach out, facetime and keep everyone close! It will really make their day!! I started a Sunday Brunch facetime event with my Dad who lives in Santa Fe, which gives us both something to look forward to. Distractions are good so here are a few amazing projects we have been working on to share with you.
What do you do if your built-in fountain in your entrance of your high rise won’t work? Rather than ripping it out and having to redo the floors, we painted a water feature on an inset board placed inside this fountain’s base. The rocks, fish, and water are all a painted illusion. By using a special coating system that layers the clear, a perception of depth was created! No need to feed these Koi!
Getting ready for pool time weather we were excited to install these SegretoStone loungers for California Designer Shan Hinton’s client here in Houston.
With the feel of an art sculpture, these are formed with comfort in mind, as a magnet is built into the piece, allowing a pillow to float as a headrest. For examples of other ways you can use Segretostone in your own home, you can read another blog of ours here or just search for Segretostone on the blogs search line.
Still a work in progress, this high rise project for Ivy Hall has been a joy to be a part of. As you can see, Goodman Even has done a beautiful job with the build-out. Our part in this kitchen?
We formulated a custom tone for the kitchen cabinet paint color to marry perfectly with the glorious stone slabs! Its name? Penthouse of course!
Love the marble shelves as an inset of the waterfall feature on the island! To die for!
We did not want these light plates to stand out, so they were painted out to read as part of the marble. My favorite game of I Spy!
Look at the size of this hood in a home we are working on with designer Trisha McGaw! With my operations manager as a scale- this marble hood is certainly an art focal in this to-be-outfitted kitchen space.
These are some renderings for some floor designs we are working on. It is so amazing to see how the same pattern can look quite different when combined in other ways! Which do you prefer? Sample 1 or…
……….sample 2? We are in the progress of painting these floors as we speak for Designer Eleanor Cummings room in the Milieu Showcase home!! We are proud sponsors and so excited to the everyone’s finished rooms!! Pull up both these websites!! Eye Candy for sure!!
This master bath had so many different angles. Thus, wall covering would have definitely been a challenge to install. Starting with the beautiful scones, a stencil was selected which could be adjusted when hand-painted to wrap around the many angles in the space.
TIP OF THE DAY!
You know how I love a beautiful pantry! For example, this one was so well organized and easy to keep, with baskets to contain the many treats!
These acrylic lazy susans keep everything so organized and visible.
You can do a bit of on line shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond and be productive is at home!! These turntables come in 9″, 11″ and 14′ sizes great for organizing kitchen bath or craft supplies and just the right size for a multitude of shelf depths! We are forever strong and forever together. I would love to hear your stories and how it feels in your neck of the woods!! I hope you all have a wonderful week! Stay strong and look at the bright side in all situations! Much love, Xo Leslie
