Passion to Innovate!
HI friends, Thank you for all your wonderful comments and emails about my two daughters homes-they loved reading them! We are working on a new renovation which for me is equally as special. Segreto’s new showroom and warehouse! I had whispered to the warehouse team that it would be super cool for them to do an inspirational phrase which encompasses how they feel about their work. I was touched by the final unveiling!
I love my job as much as I did 28 years ago, and this signage reminded me why. Our team leads with passion, which has created a cool culture- one that is both fun and motivating.
Allow your passion to become your purpose, and it will one day become your profession- quoteistan.com
So while showing you what we are passionate about, think about giving yourself time to discover or enjoy yours! Whether it be cooking, travel, learning, sports, creativity, family, animals or even setting an amazing table, spending more time on your passion gives the feeling that you are meant to do great things in life. Above is one of our newest furniture designs which Isai created as a desk for his new office. He came up with a new technique which is much lighter in weight than some of our other furniture piece. Notice the angle detail for the table top? LOVE!
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. -Steve Jobs
While renovating our own spaces we are also helping many other with theirs. This plaster fluted wall we did for Benjamin Johnston Design really made an impact in this formal living!
Your passion is for you, your purpose is for others!
This was such a fun and challenging project to be a part of. Glasser Cooper Interiors called us to implement a vision their art collector clients had for their media bath. They fell in love with Sol LeWitt’s “Wall Drawing #33” of 1970, which was executed by student drafters in the Modern and Contemporary Gallery at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. This rendition had challenges because the room was curved, however the design perfectly lined up. Go Team!
You can’t teach passion. You can teach anything else.- Leigh Trevino
Our “Our Spy Artist” has been busy with Laura U’s team hiding all the vents and cans in their wall coving selections. How long would it take you to find this one if you didn’t see the image on top?
Things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling. – Fabienne Fredrickson
Pretty in pink this will be a lovely nursery when Whitney Gordon Interiors finishes with this little baby girls décor. Painting the tone on tone with Segreto’s signature color Rosewater in mural form gives the room a sophistication that will last from baby to adulthood.
Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion. -Simon Sinek
This amazing idea brought to us by Slovack-Bass drops a super cool sink into a SegretoStone base. Maybuilt Homes finished the design installing a floating shelf out of reclaimed wood! This is for two guest casitas in a ranch property- Can I stay?
Honor your calling. Everybody has one. Trust your heart, and success will come to you. – Oprah Winfrey
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”- Mark Twain
In the same house we applied a venetian plaster to the bar- but wait…
I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious. – Albert Einstein
…..the marbleized graphic in the bar which emulated the countertops really finishes off this space. Over the top, Courtnay called to say she wanted to weep with joy when she saw her vision come to life. Look at her cute shoes!!
I would rather die of passion than or boredom.” Vincent Van Gogh
Sometimes I think if I retire-not that I am- what would I be passionate about. So I have to consider, what do I love talking about, learning about or helping others with? Don’t overthink, as passion can’t be found in your head because it lives in your heart.
