We need your Help! Let’s Play “pick that cover” and Win a gift!

Oct 05, 2020

Hi Friends! I hope you are having a great week! Remember when you helped me name colors for the paint line? Well now its time to pick the cover of our Segreto Palette Deck and I would like you all to be involved! I will share the journey and concepts behind the deck to give you the background so you can play “Pick that Cover” and enter to win to a gift from Segreto!

Segreto Palette

Wanting to be able to create that perfect tone to marry well with our plaster colors which are full of depth and warmth, I began a paint line. For years, I custom mixed colors for my clients, taking them to paint stores so they could match my colors to their paints for the clients to purchase. This process took lots of back and forth to get the color right so I wanted to bring that process in house. Being colorists, creating the colors was fun for me and my staff. Like mad chemists in a lab, we mixed different pigments in solo cups little by little altering each one into the perfect tone. Above became our Segreto Palette.

Segreto Palette Luggage Tags on Wall

We looked into different ways to share and display our paint chips. Being shocked at how expensive it was to print a deck, more expensive than printing our design books, we decided to hand paint luggage tags, label them and hang them on hooks on our wall.

Segreto Palette Selections

This was a slow process, so the only way our clients could select from our colors was to come into the showroom and select individual chips. Color to me is so important. It triggers emotions which can alter your mood, calm your nerves, and create a peaceful atmosphere at home. And I know we all want that!

Segreto Finishes Room

Providing that “this is home” feeling for you in your own home has been a mission of Segreto from the start. I thought we should not only have a paint deck, as its only shows part of how we transform spaces, but it should embody our entire product lines through a Segreto Pallet.

Segreto Paint

Whether plaster, Segretostone, lime washes, wood finishes, slurries and now paint, this deck can be used to create that ambiance in many products. The palette decks are made up of easy-to-view color strips that showcase many colors and corresponding SegretoStone options. It takes you through a spectrum of colors; we cover the whites, warm neutrals, grays, soft hued blues, greens and pinks as well as the newest addition of richer colors. The paints are offered in latex flat, latex washable matte and semi-gloss oil and the price point is just slightly above standard paint lines making it a great value and affordable for all.

      Hi Cynthia! Thank you so much! This has been such a hard decision for me! We have done about 50 renditions!! I do need your help! xo

    I like #2 because the faux marble is timeless and the thin sample stripes embodie all that Segreto does.

    # 6 is also in the running, because it tells me about the range of colors in your pallet deck. I probably already know about the many finishes that are available if I am buying yor paints.

    #10 because it is simple, to the point and will never go out of style. I’m not sure if this cover tells the Segreto story…. but most likely the paint buyer will know your story!
    God bless and best wishes as you move forward with your new paint line.

    I am a retired designer,but let’s face it we never retire.There is always a friend or old client that needs help.l have always found the absence of colour an easier place to start so #7 is my pick.Please put me on the wait list for a deck.l too have been making my own colours and l think you have nailed it!
    Thank you for a great start to my week again!

    I’m leaning towards number 3 as it seems to be in the middle of all that you do. Covers just about all your concepts.

    7 would be my first choice . It is clean and simple. When I look at the board where you have samples displayed, I see the gold trim and wish you added a little gold to the the deck covers. I know foil application is more $ though. 6 would be my second choice. It is showing you exactly what to expect.

    Leslie, I like Segreto Palette numbers 3, 6 & 7, but of the three, I prefer #6 because the colors are soft but intense enough to catch your eye.

    I would say #2, #6 and #7! I think #7 is so unique and would stand out to me. #6 is great in that it shows the range of beautiful colors available. #2 is very classic and elegant as well. Hard choice!

    I love #2 because of the gorgeous colors as I do not think that the flower has anything to do with paints.

    My three are 5, 6 and 7 I think 7 is classically beautiful neutral that would lead you to want to open the palette to see what all the colors are without prejudgment of various colors on the cover. If I had to choose one only it would be 7.

    Excited to use your paint on my next new home.

    Great options! Six and 10 are the most interesting for me. Timelessly beautiful and on brand while conveying quality. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE them all, but based on what you described as your goals and needs, my favorites are: 6, 3, 2 in that order .

    My favorite, #6 shows the broad range of color values in finishes you offer as well as the nuanced tones Segreto is known for. It is timeless and classic! The background behind the “Segreto Palette” nicely shows one of your wall finishes. (Wouldn’t mind also seeing the lighter rectangular box superimposed with the Segreto Palette words).

    My next favorite is #3. I love seeing the broader range of applications Segreto does….especially the gray/silver stencil snippet. However, with the “teaser” images of what looks like wallpaper, wood texture and 3-d flowers,….I feel if those images are on the front, it would make sense to have corresponding “pages” with full photos in the palette describing more of why those images are on a paint deck cover.

    My 3d favorite is #2. Very Very similar to #3, but lighter colored. I preferred 3 over 2 because the palette range takes up more of the paint deck cover on #3 over #2. I feel #2 needed more presence of actual paint colors.
