Look at what came in the mail today! I have been anxiously waiting for this book all week! I am so unbelievably honored to be reviewing Leslie Sinclair’s newest book, “Segreto Vignettes”. While I absolutely adore her two previous books, (Segreto and Segreto Finishes), this one is my most favorite.
Here is a quick peek at what Leslie has included in this gorgeous book. You can see from the contents page that this book covers it all (well practically). I completely agree with her when she says this book is an invaluable guide to the world of creative finishes. There are thousands of ideas, all beautifully photographed. These pages come to life in this stunning collection of rooms all adorned with finishes by Segreto. As you can see from the “contents page”, she covers so many different aspects of design.
I stumbled on Leslie’s work many years ago when I was swooning over a finish on some beautiful woodwork and have been following her ever since. You all know how much I absolutely love a beautiful weathered finish and she is definitely the truest talent to just that.
Look at this “before and after” photo of these most beautiful ceiling beams! I am always in awe of how she can transform a newer piece of wood into the most elegant weathered finish. This book is filled room after room of the most inspiring finishes.
Leslie is known in the industry as one of the best of the best in the world of interiors, and for good reason. She works with so many talented designers, artists and photographers and many of them have contributed to this beautiful book.
Just look at this kitchen! The cabinetry and beams are gorgeous and really bring this whole room to a new level.
I honestly had a hard time as to what photos to share with you all, seriously. It literally is page after page of beautiful rooms, finishes and techniques. This is way more than just a book filled with gorgeous photos (that wouldn’t be a bad thing), but this is so much more. Leslie covers “finishing trends” on furniture, walls, lighting and tile. There is even a section on “disguising TV’s”. This is huge for me! I think a TV can ruin the look of a room and this book includes so many beautiful ways to hide them.
This book guides you room through room with one inspiring page after the other. I am swooning over this bathroom. Every little aspect of it is so beautiful.
You know I love a soft neutral palette and Leslie tends to stay in these tones, which makes me love her work all the more.
There’s even a section on “styling with slipcovers” and “painting on fabric”, both are things I love.
Whether looking for inspiration for your own home or business, this book is a must-have if you are interested in design on any level. (actually, all three of Leslie’s books are). You will NOT be disappointed – it is a visual masterpiece that you will refer to over and over again. Over 325 pages of beautiful, gorgeous color photos. It’s simply a book you will love.
Here is how you can buy any of the books.
Thank you so much Leslie for including me in the group of bloggers who got the amazing opportunity to see this book early – I am so honored and know I will use this book as an inspiration in so many ways!!
