Segreto Style…New Inspiration

I am so happy to be featuring Leslie Sinclair’s new book…”Segreto Style”

Leslie is the creator and owner behind Segreto Finishes, the Houston based company that specializes in custom paint finishes for walls, cabinetry, floors and furniture. Leslie’s first book, “Segreto Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors,” was launched just a few years ago and has been an absolute favorite of mine. I’ve browsed this book many many times for inspiration.

I have admired Leslie’s style and creativity from the very first time I came across her work a couple of years ago and have been following her ever since. The cover shows the beautiful hand painted finish on the cabinetry, the paint technique is a trademark of Segreto Finishes. To me it is true weathered elegance a style that is my absolute favorite.

Leslie’s first book was such a huge success that she quickly set out to write her second. I don’t know how it would be possible but from the gorgeous photos I have seen I think this one may be better than the first.

The book is filled with Georgian, Modern, French, Romantic, Spanish Revival, Louisiana Inspiration, Nantucket Style and so much more. Also with a variety of interior designers and builders to match these different styles.

The book is HUGE and packed full of one large image after the other. One of those books you can browse through for days (and days).

Here is a list of places and events where you can go and get your book signed and meet Leslie. The dates shown are in Houston, but more dates in other areas will be added soon. 

Here is a list of stores around the country whee you will be able to purchase the book after November 1st.

And here is where you can pre-order your book now. When you order will will have to put down where you heard about the book, so just say “Cloth and Patina” in that space.

You can also still purchase her first book AND you will see on the order form that Leslie has a THIRD book coming out next year called, “Segreto Vignettes”. I can’t wait for this one!!! Leslie is so amazingly talented!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Segreto, I encourage you to check out Leslie’s work. I know you will find her a true inspiration.

      Hello and good morning! No my home isn’t featured here, but there are many gorgeous homes, design styles and photos to see. I am still on Etsy, but my shop is kinda sparse at the moment, but really trying to restock for the Holidays. I enjoy following you on Instagram as well…so many beautiful and peaceful photos. Much love to you!
