What’s New at the Showroom?
Hi friends, I am so sorry that I haven’t posted on the same regular basis. I am spending most of my writing time on the next Segreto Book hoping to get it to you by Christmas!! I would love to hear from you–What would you like this book to be like? What would you like to hear from me? I always value your input and help!! Email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org! Other exciting news is the mad push to add more wonderful finishes to our new showroom!!
I know that you may have all seen this picture, and if you have run into me have heard my obsession with the new Flagship Dior store in Paris as well as their new book Dior in Bloom!! My obsession lies not with me wearing their beautiful clothes but how they display them, every vignette or page telling a story which focuses on the incredible artistry of their craft! They have inspired me to try to add a bit of their magic into our little abode on Wirtcrest Lane!
This is the start of what is yet to come. Next to our SegretoStone section we created panels filled with plaster and layered with a stencil as a backdrop to our mini versions of Segretostone fireplace mantles.
Then we embellished the frames around the panels which shows cabinet finishes in complementary tones. Eventually we will include furniture pieces and moldings floating off the wall!!
Stencils are an amazing alternative to wallpaper, allowing customization in color selections and since they are hand-painted no seams! This section is painted in metallic, which change dramatically as you walk around- the slight shimmer reflects off the light reminiscent of a silk wallcovering!
With so many artistic talents working for Segreto we started a cross training program as they all love to learn and want to be well versed in every aspect of the decorative arts. Jose here, an artist by trade has been a lead on our maintenace and repair crew- being able to repair damage blending it in seamlessly to the surfaces it touches.
We have added 10 different panels for you to see! The top part and bottoms use the same stencils- the only difference is the colors are reversed!! There are literally thousands of designs to choose from and with color combinations unlimited there is no limit!!
Since I mentioned Dior in Bloom, I need to show you!! It is page after page where you see the inspirations of the gardens, they have taken many of their designs from. This is a beautiful Mother’s Day gift! If you are interested order soon, I have found it can be hard to get!!
We needed more storage at the showroom, so in thinking of a way to beautifully incorporate a closet into our back SegretoStone showroom, we built a structure and painted a soothing mural on its walls, bringing a bit of nature into the space. All of the colors used are from our own Segreto Palette line!! We are ramping our production up for this space. Now you will be able to buy off the floor and not wait for production time,
You could tell we needed a door to hide our clutter, so my amazing team created these doors with SegretoStone! The handles in our logo were made on site in our new welding shop!! I have been traveling so much for work lately it gave them time to surprise me!! We still need to put a finish on the metal bar and grommets, but we are almost done.
We have been working with Kristal Dayal with Krystal Michelle Designs on a mural for a powder bath she is working on! I am so excited about using a Dior scarf as inspiration!
Using her color palette, Krystal was able to work with our artist at the showroom to bring her vision to life!! It was so much fun seeing how the little tweaks brought a smile to her beautiful face!
We are also working on another labor of love for me! Our new Segreto Art Gallery! You can see how our finishes will translate on your walls firsthand and also have a curated selection of sculptures and canvas art for purchase. Thank you so much for your support and your patience with me while we are working hard to provide you with a space full of possibilities, where what our imaginations can create are limitless!! Please don’t forget to send me your ideas on the book email@example.com or book a showroom tour firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a wonderful week and I will visit again the first of next month! Till next time, xo Leslie
