Books: Segreto Vignettes {leslie sinclair}


It is not everyday one gets to shout over the web


but today it’s my pleasure to invite you to the lovely within

Leslie Sinclair’s latest creation:



If the walls here at my fixer upper could talk,

they might say:


“Why can’t you work magic on us like Leslie

and her artists in Texas do with those gorgeous Houston

homes ending up on Cote de Texas and in design books?”



And the entrance to my fixer upper might indeed chirp:


“True that. When are we getting our

Segreto treatment? Where’s our Vignette-y moment!?!”

(Apparently I have created a spoiled cottage makeover monster,
whose stucco-textured walls may not resemble the
divine examples within Segreto Vignettes,
yet can boast they have been touched by
a weird-but-nice blog fairy’s paintbrush.)

You see, the word is out about what Ms. Sinclair
and her magical firm Segreto Finishes can do
with a little plaster, paint, and keen vision.

Segreto Vignettes is full of inspiring and artful
wall, floor, ceiling, and cabinetry finishes
which hit all the right notes in the
sophisticated rooms


Yes, friends.

One bold and beauteous painted floor.


please. paint. the interior. of my fireplace. ebony.


Are you getting a sense of the loveliness within these pages?


upon our humble dining table sits a most luxurious title

Hundreds of pages of glowing, uniquely appointed
spaces and photographs join masterful tips
and commentary from loyal friend of Hello Lovely,
Leslie Sinclair.

The following image is from one of my favorite

Segreto projects which succeeds with its

magical combination of modern and traditional.

I’m kind of in love.


HOW I LOVE that this pooch made the book cover!

Wait til you see what Segreto does with stencils!

Is my own vignette making anyone feel festive and holiday-ish?

103 days people.

And folks love the gift of a beautiful book
such as this one which one can gaze at
whilst sipping
and then return to again and again.
(To clarify: “return to again and again” due to exceptional
beauty, not because you were: too ‘plastered’ to remember,
blacked out, or are getting too old and suffering
memory loss issues.
Know what..just forget it.)

Peace to you right where you are.

    I used the same large damask stencil shown in this bathroom in my house a couple years ago. Also used it on canvases that I can move around. Chic minds think alike! Ha ha. I asked for this book for my birthday. Can't wait to see it. I have her other books which I look through every few months.

    Lovely, Michele! Thanks for sharing. Such great inspiration, I'm just loving those distressed wood doors in an otherwise white room, so very chic. And oh that powder room, what's not to love? Have a great Wednesday:)
