I have recently been hired to totally gut and redesign a Salon/Spa for a client. This is a HUGE undertaking for both myself and the Owner of the Salon. Her request is to have an addition onto the spa and redesign the existing Spa area, Bathroom, Kitchen and colour rooms entire salon area and the exterior of the building.
This Salon/Spa is well known not only for its forward thinking in fashion, but for a salon that truly is a comfort to its clients. The shop owners clients say it is a sanctuary that feels like home.
When designing for this space I had to reflect that in the design. The space was warm and cozy but was out-dated and did not reflect the forward thinking of the owner. My goal is to create a space that is old in feeling, reflects its country surrounding yet is a bit more modern in form. I seem to recall explaining my design plan in these words….. "Gentleman's club meets old world glamour with feminine accent and form...and a modern twist” I know….I have lost you now ; )
Here are a few pictures of the existing Salon area
The New Salon Area
The New Manicure and Makeup Area

The New Facial Rooms
This is an incredible project to work on and I hope I capture the warmth and the spirit of the former Salon & Spa that the customers love so much but have given them something new to appreciate.
Follow me on this project from start to finish and watch how it all unfolds!
