If there’s anything we love, it’s a gorgeous coffee table book. So we were so excited to find designer and decorative painter Leslie Sinclair’s new book, Segreto: Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors. Through her work, Leslie proves that fine finishing can transform a room.
 The designer stumbled upon this paneled look on a trip to France.
The gorgeous finish on these cabinets is sealed so it is more durable than paint. That’s always good in a space where things tend to get a little messy!
The plaster finish on the walls and cabinets is finished to enhance the old world charm of the room.
 The stencil inside these coffers was created using brown paint and a tea stain.
The finish on these cabinets beautifully complements the 17th century stone countertops.
Simple plaster with no other finishes can be so starkly lovely.
The metallic stenciling over the plaster here dresses up the look. We’re loving having Leslie’s inspiration for our Monday morning. 
Segreto is available on Leslie’s website or on Amazon if you want to delve deeper!

Happy Memorial Day, friends! We feel so blessed today remembering all of those who lost their lives fighting for this wonderful place we call home. Thank you to everyone who serves our country!
