What’s Segreto Been Up To?

Aug 15, 2022

Hi Friends, although the heat is still here in Houston, school has started, and summer is over! I hope everyone had family and friend time and went on at least one big adventure!! I wanted to share with you a few stand out projects we have been working on and one big surprise!

SegretoStone Tables

We are so fortunate to be able to work with Eleanor Cummings on our SegretoStone furniture projects. Her style is par none- with a collected, timeless and elevated feel. I love her idea of her double coffee tables in this large living space! This build of this project is beautifully executed with Sebastian Construction Group at its hub!! You should check out their website! It is really well done!

Hood finished by Segreto

I was so excited to work on this house- not only because it is amazing, but I was able to collaborate with the talented James Dawson in this hood creation! Since 1994 James has been a Houston design staple and a go to for anything unique. We applied the finish to the wood, and he fabricated this beautiful mixed media hood. This house will certainly be featured in book 5 with so many wonderful elements. Although a new construction, it is a home which feels like it will be there for generations to come. Designer Sarah Liuzzi and David Hathaway with Gunn Construction have been a wonderful collaboration of talent! PS. the shiplap in this picture is painted with Segreto Paint in the color “Escape”!

Segreto Plaster Florals

Segreto teamed up with designer, Michelle Stewart to create this beauty! Struggling to find the perfect piece of art for this space, Michelle and the homeowners fell in love with our plaster roses and vines. The team loves how this art feature pulls your eye to this room at the back of the house right when you enter the front door! I love this article on Michelle’s personal house when she decorated it for Christmas!! It was featured in Southern Accents!!

Segreto Plaster Staircase

This house had some beautifully dramatic architectural features. I loved the staircase, plastered in Segreto’s signature tone “Moon Beam” with our coordinating trim paint to blend! The custom light fixture Designer Trisha McGaw selected, falls three stories!

SegretoStone Table

This was such an incredible project brought to us by Abel Design Group!! The homeowner wanted to be able to have an outdoor entertaining space fit for an elaborate Tuscan feast. Look up to the trees-they are mixed with 1000’s of crystals- a majestic art installation! It was hard to catch in a photo, but the reflective ambiance if creates with the prisms is lovely. The SegretoStone table customized for this space was so large that we completed the bases at our warehouse and then had to create the top in place! It truly compliments the European way of “outdoor living” the client was wanting!

Segreto metal leaf details

I have always been a fan of metal leaf details on moldings, cabinets, and more! It adds just the right element of sophistication to a piece without being glitzy as shown on this door’s bead detail. It also looks beautiful on paneling, and cabinetry!

Brass inlayed in SegretoStone

I was thrilled when we were commissioned to inlay brass into a SegretoStone fireplace for a client. It added a modern twist to this traditional design. I can’t wait to apply the same techniques to tables, consoles, coffee tables and more.

Speakers and cans painted to blend with wallcovering

I have another work of art to add to our favorite game of “I Spy”! I was amazed at the detail that our decorative team put into masking light trims, speakers, glass breakers and more for designer Kara Childress and Goodchild Builders. By hiding these elements that stood out- the ceiling treatment really could be the statement in the room that was intended!

Hand painted panels

Sometimes the favorite part of our job is to solve problems. This is an incredible kitchen where all of kitchen cabinet fronts were made from sold stone!! Because of the weight the panels from the dishwashers became an issue when they were opened and closed. UTBC asked if we could paint wooden panels to emulate the marble?

Segreto hand painted panels

Segreto’s decorative team was challenged to make the new wooden panels look exactly like the surrounding stone cabinetry so the designer on the project-Garrett Hunter’s vision could come to life! I will show you more on this home as it evolves. It is remarkable!

New Segreto Showroom Entry

And now, for a partial reveal! With the new warehouse operational, we have been working hard to transform our old warehouse into a new showroom space!! It is going to be so great to have our operations/production and design staff next door!! We are so excited about what we will be able to show you in our new spaces!! So, on August 20th we are moving locations and will no longer be at 1414 Antoine!!! Give us time to get out of boxes and then we will have a total reveal. Stay tuned for sneak peaks!! Till next time!
