Segreto: Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors

Saturday, April 7, 2012

Recently, author and decorative painter extraordinaire Leslie Sinclair wrote me an email and asked if she could send me her book, Segreto: Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors, for me to review and possibly add to my sidebar.  I said "sure," not really knowing what to expect.  I didn't promise anything, and she didn't even ask.  She must know what a great book she is so gorgeous that I am posting about it immediately after having just finished every word.  I spent most of the night reading it...a rare luxury, but I couldn't put it down.

The cover says it better than I could, so here is a brief description:
Delve into the world of home design through the perspective of a decorative painter. In Segreto: Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors, Leslie Sinclair shares her secrets on how fine finishing can transform and enhance any interior. Filled with beautiful homes that serve as visual inspiration, this 300 page oversized coffee table book details the vast number of finishes available and offers tips on how to choose the right one for an array of design and architectural styles. Drawing on over 15 years of experience, Leslie showcases the many ways in which specialty finishes impart warmth, character and depth, whether the goal is to give new construction an established feel, update an existing home or fashion the perfect backdrop for contemporary or traditional furnishings and art. Explore the breathtaking rooms within and enjoy a multitude of design styles by the bevy of talented interior designers, builders, architects and homeowners that Leslie has been privileged to work with through the years. Segreto: Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors gives you the knowledge of what is available today and the confidence to create an ambiance that best reflects the particular period or design style you desire, by simply applying the right finish.

I can't show you to many photos, but here are the ones from Amazon:
