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.

So let’s play “pick that cover”!

Scroll through the cover options below. Think…what would draw me to the deck? Which design will stay current for years? What appeals to traditional, contemporary, transitional styles, multiple age groups and budget ranges? What embodies the Segreto brand?

    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 like 7 from this selection – neutral, timeless, and elegant. I wish you would have added the flower to 10 – it would show color and texture. Your colors are soft and relaxing and do not demand constant change every five years with the change in decorating fads. I have enjoyed watching your business grow, and love it when I see articles in magazines mentioning you name, products, and photos of your work! You must be so proud of your accomplishments! Have a blessed day🥰

    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.

    With #2 being a close second choice, suggesting all of the textures you often colorize or enhance.

    How exciting! 7, 5 & 6 are my picks. 7 is by far my fav, because it catches my attention while invoking a feeling of calm.

    I don’t believe 1-3 & 9 will stand the test of time, because of the stained wood. 10 also could seem dated years to come when color palette trends shift. However, they all are beautiful today!

    Leslie ~ it’s SO HARD. they’re all beautiful (and timeless, I think) and they all speak Segreto. Forced to choose, 7 is the most unique, which Swgreto definitely is. 6 and 4 are also very on brand and soothing and timeless just like your paint, plaster and product finishes. I love them all so I’m glad the task is all yours. The team did a beautiful job putting it all together and I can’t wait to have my own copy. We can’t have you and your amazing artisans right here in Florida but this will be such a treat to specify in client projects ~ just can’t get enough of all the beauty you spread. Super excited about the lime wash too ~ y’all stay safe and keep on making life lovely ~ TJF

    6, 3, then 2. The reason for number 6 is that it represents a full range of colors rather than just lights/pastels. The others also represent a full range of colors but pull in the other finishes that Segreto specializes in and for which the new paints become complementary.

    My favorite is 8 because it is beautiful and inviting, tempting me to open the deck. Next is 6 because the color palette is soft and harmonious. Then number 1 because I can see what all of these beautiful colors can make! Truthfully, there are no bad choices.

    I would pick 6 as #1 as it shows the breath of the trend right palette right off the bat.
    I would next pick #3 as it exhibits is a beautiful collective way the large breath of Segreto finishes, albeit not all inclusive.
    Finally, I would pick #3 for the same reason as #2, although I feel #3 lays out the colors and technique in a more aesthetically appealing way.

    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!

    Favorites are 3,4, and 6. I think #6 is best because this cover shows the color range offered in your paint line, inspiring customers to look through the paint deck and discover the perfect Segreto white, beige, gray, pink, or blue shade for their own home.

    I think many will be inspired to purchase your paints because of your gorgeous finishes. It’s part of your name and what your company is known for;) Capitalize on that strength. Therefore, I personally like #1, 2 and 3. They represent your range of finishes the best. My favorite is #3 but I would make two changes. Use the marble finish on the left side (as used in #1 and #2) and include the small ivory and gold leaf stripe in #1. This would be a beautiful representation of your work. I wish you all the best in expanding your line!

  • Suzanne D. Grable
    Posted at 12:01h, 06 October Reply

    I choose number 2, 1 & 3. No. 2 looks richer but number 1 has a sample of the work on the left side which I guess to be the top of the cover and is more prominent. 2 & 3 both show a wide variety of color and the richness of the color shows. No. 1 shows samples of your designs all the way through.

    5 because the textures are gorgeous and the horizontal stripping will appeal to all decorators and home owners looking for a modern farmhouse, simply modern, or traditionalist drawn to soft colors

    7 because it reflects the neutral, Old World textures that are my favorite

    9 because it reveals better range of options to mix mediums and textures

    I love the simplicity of 7,8 and 9. However, my favourite is 9 because it not only has the simplicity which I feel is important in any marketing concept. the golden rule “KISS” Keep It Simple Stupid! But it also has the colour of pink which is always a fashion forward colour mixed with the opposite grey/green/blue. Has the key neutral of white in the background, which is essential backdrop for colour. then you have captured the dimension in the flower and the texture in the wood piece! I think it is timeless and perfect! Well done!

    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.
