The ‘secret’ world of plaster & paint


My friend Leslie Sinclair, the author of the blog Segreto and owner of the Houston based company Segreto Finishes, recently published her new book ‘Segreto Style’.

We all have noticed that great pictures of Leslie’s work appeared in bloggerland since her first book Segreto was published.

As owner of a decorative painting company, Leslie Sinclair is constantly exploring new techniques and finishes that appeal to a vast multitude of styles and personal tastes.

Her new book ‘Segreto Style’ takes us touring thirty-nine exquisite house projects, of which Leslie’s company Segreto Finishes took care of the mural as of the cabinet plaster and paint finishes.

Leslie’s books, the first as well as the new book, are a testimony to her talent of being a true artist and entrepreneur!
