This spa is located in a small town. It has a lovely Victorian style exterior, but the interior is in need of a lot of work. I took a small waiting area upstairs and transformed it into something that matched the outside better, with a little playful and nouveau twist.
I had a budget of $500, so I had to prioritize very carefully, where that money needs to go and then find creative solutions for the rest.
I found most of the furniture from a lovely store called "The Barn", Cowhide rug is from Ikea, and it gives a bit of a modern twist for the space. The owner previously had benches in the room, but the rule of thumb in any public space is that people who do not know each other, do not typically like to sit too close to one another, so I chose 4 chairs with cute accent pillows. Previously the room did not have any table surface, so I though a nice, small coffee table would be appropriate addition. This way people have a surface to put their coffee or tea, offered at the spa, on. I also picked a side table and mirror more scaled to the space and a cute little table lamp to provide soft light for the room. The mirror reads "Hello Beautiful" in hopes to put smile on the face of each person glancing on it. We all should be reminded how beautiful we are every day. The flower installation on the fall is made of paper doilies and thumbtacks. It gives a little interest on the walls and hides the damaged cost by lots of nail holes. (click on the images to enlarge)
