Segreto’s brilliant founder and leader, Leslie Sinclair has been a friend to this blog for many moons, and we love her back. The artistic painting inspiring Sinclair for decades keeps blooming more beautifully each year for her lucky clients treated to premier Segreto finishes and gracious hospitality.

Segreto Finishes now offers Segreto Stone – a durable material to consider for countertops, sinks, tables, and more. I think my favorite application of this miracle stuff is for framing cabinet bases (you’ll see what I mean below).

In a previous episode of Hello Lovely, Segreto loaned us expertise for choosing the best paint colors and finishes…a topic as evergreen and valued by we designgeeks as any. Do take that ditty for a spin (as the ancient, uncool bloggers who blogged pre-Pinterest say).

Choosing the best paint colors and finishes is one thing; executing soulfully is quite another and where Segreto shines. The quality work of more than 40 artisans at Segreto has contributed to beautiful interiors lauded in House Beautiful, Veranda, and more.

Leslie authors the engaging and endearing blog, Segreto Secrets where girlfriend always shares the good secrets and the best interiors, art and finishes. Additionally, she is the author of three gorgeous design books: Segreto: The Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors, Segreto Style and Segreto Vignettes.

    Leslie and her crew are true artisans. How did she learn this very, old trade? She brings old world touches to her new builds. Exquisite!

      We do need to dig deeper and maybe she will grant an interview. I would like to go visit her, and this would provide a lovely excuse! Thanks for reading, friend. 🙂

    Lovely the article and pictures and I clicked on all the previous stories you wrote. I have a question on how you did a color wash on your bedroom furniture. I know you said you watered down the Edgecomb Grey (I think it was) with water and applied it. Can you give a few more details on how you did it Did you put some type of sealer on top after you were finished? I want to try doing something like that but don’t know where to start. Thanks a million!

      Thanks for reading! The paint color I used for the wash over our bedroom furniture is BENJAMIN MOORE Revere Pewter, satin finish – thinned a little with paint – sorry I didn’t pay attention to proportions. With a small brush for painting trim, I dragged the wash over the furniture lightly so as not to get solid coverage. This was a very forgiving method since as long you go with a light hand, you can build the finish. To seal it, I rubbed on with a clean rag a light layer of cream wax found at Home Depot which is also used as a second step for chalk paint. I am NOT meticulous about such projects because I am never going for a “new” or perfect look. Being lazy and a little sloppy has its rewards for such an aged, timeworn effect. I don’t like sanding, dust, mess, and taking too much time so I experiment first on a small area then just bite the bullet. My thought is always: if I hate it later, I’ll paint it a solid color…Hope this helps! I’ll try to do an updated post about our bedroom to get these thoughts in there.
