Follow Segreto This Week – Pops of Color, I Spy, SegretoStone And More!
Hi Friends! First of all, my heart goes out to our Louisiana and Mississippi neighbors and friends as hurricane Ida struck Louisiana on Sunday on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Our prayers remain with you. As a send off to summer, I thought I would share what has been trending this summer at Segreto!
POPS OF COLOR!
Designer Jennifer Martinez, a master of infusing color, created a a space all of its own in this dramatic dining. We loved the effect of our plaster formulated to blend with Farrow & Ball Blue, but when we then hand-painted a mural on top- this room became a WOW!
I have always loved Jennifer’s ability to mix pieces and styles from different era’s seamlessly! The contemporary art marries so well with the traditional table, antique chairs and fixtures and transitional rug. STUNNING!
Wrapping the color into the bar, we created a SegretoStone waterfall counter in SOFT TOUCH from our new color palette!
Here are my guys so proud after completing a Venetian ceiling for McGarr Design and Interiors replicating International Klein Blue, a shade of pure ultramarine that Klein claimed to have invented and trademarked.
In the same house we removed the carvings and plastered over a gold travertine fireplace with a rich black tadelakt plaster! What a huge before and after!!
Daily Howard was a dramatic feel to her clients main powder. Using Benjamin Moore Cactus Green 2035-20 as inspiration, we applied a rich venetian on the walls grounded by a floating SegretoStone counter with integrated sink in our color Onyx.
The WOW factor! The custom hand painted design over white oak wood floors created a welcoming impact in this entry. I love the wood showing through with the mix of grays, white and blue! We loved being apart of this home and seeing designer, Laura Weaver’s vision through in this entry. A great job from our decorative team!
PAINTED, PLUGS, VENTS AND CANS!
Now for our favorite game of “I Spy”! Can you spot the switch plate we painted to blend in this stunning bar designed by Trisha McGaw?
Well done!! One of Segreto’s talented artists makes his living making things disappear!!
What a difference it makes to mask these utilitarian necessities. Alex loves the challenge of disguising plugs, speakers and vents throughout a home no matter what surface they were on.
Now you see it, now you don’t! Blending away plates on so many different surfaces, mixing paints to match the exact color and pattern.
Before and after! The speaker really took away from the statement the wallcovering created in this space. Sometimes it’s the smallest tweaks we do that can enhance a design or camouflage an undesirable element to create a space that is simply stunning!!
It wouldn’t be an update from Segreto without a spotlight on some of our SegretoStone pieces! Here is a sneak peak of this custom SegretoStone table, in the color Warm Stone, before the room is complete. It measures 11 feet long!! Can’t wait to see the chairs placed!
This small powder packs drama with its hand-screened paper and custom contemporary SegretoStone basin with integrated sink and mirror! The rich blue was taken from the most pigmented parts of the waves. Although we have 23 signatures colors, Segretostone can also be customized in your perfect shade. Builders West was instrumental in customizing the box we applied our SegretoStone on top of!
We were so excited to create their vision for the tabletop!! Set on the homeowner’s existing table base, this SegretoStone tabletop gave this piece an easy refresh for their outdoor entertaining area. SegretoStone is an amazing product, whether going over what you have or starting from new, this all natural lime based product, is more durable than concrete or marble and can seamlessly be repaired in place.
Thank you for letting me share a few of our summertime trends! I can’t wait to see what we will be up to this fall! Happy Labor Day All! Till Next Time!! XO Leslie

Hi! Love the secreto stone tabletop! Can this product be used on an outside slate floor? We’ve recently installed a gorgeous bluestone marble pool deck and need to meld with the existing slate patio.

Hi Yvonda, Hope you are having a nice weekend!! It can but, outside we are still testing for durability. Outside this is always an issue. thanks for following along!

I’m wanting to know if I can use your white wash paint that you use on brick on my stucco house. It’s a french country style home with a rough texture rather than a smooth texture on the outside. I would love to send you pictures if you need a visual of the home.
Thank you, Martha Morgan

Hello, I just ran across your book on Hello Lovely blog and am so inspired. Stunning!!! I will be following you. I did see a beautiful picture on the wall with blues, beige’s, grays and whites and it looked like a dragonfly. Do you have any idea where I could find that? Thank you so much. OMG I can’t believe how gorgeous your work is!!
