Even the “too new” black staircase railings were intelligently addressed by Segreto. Artisans softly layered the wrought iron with umber and gray glazes, creating a patina to harmonize with reclaimed wood stairs.

      I hope the updated version of the post was the one you saw this morning – a previous unedited version first aired, and oh my, I think I corrected the parts that didn’t save properly! Oy vey – what a lovely feast you have given us, Leslie. Thank you so so much for all of the labor and thoughtfulness that went into this new amazing book. While I knew it would be sensational, it unexpectedly moved me in significant ways. These are the sorts of interiors to aspire to! Thank you for the opportunity to share the design goodness overflowing from the pages of SEGRETO impressions. Hope to see you in person and congratulate you face to face someday soon! 🙂
