Essential Feng Shui Tips for the Spa

Begin to understand some essential feng shui principles for the spa.  We spoke with Feng Shui Consultant, Beata Kulitskaya from Double Happiness Studio for insight.

  • Water features are both beautiful and essential for the spa.  They create a soothing and relaxing atmosphere; which also helps to activate the career area (main entrance).  Water features attract new clients and improve business.

  • The location of the reception desk is very important to the well-being of both the employee and guests.  Locate the desk adjacent and not parallel to the front entrance.  The ideal location would be the Financial or Fame sector of the spa.
  • Use mirrors in spaces where you need to cure an awkward area, like a narrow hallway or a dead end room.   A mirror directly across from the main entrance/door will cause the positive energy to move away and negatively influence the business.

  • The use of color in achieving a well balanced space is key.  Colors play an important role in creating positive and welcoming environment in the spa.  Too little or too much of any element changes the balance and interior atmosphere.  Artwork is an easy way to bring in different colors and help create the proper balance and harmony needed for the spa.

  • Keeping your central (health sector)  spa area clean, organized, and beautiful will promote a healthy environment, especially for clients who come to the spa for healing purposes.
  • The ideal location for the owner’s office is in the Financial, Relationship, or Fame sector of the spa.  Make sure to keep the location of the desk in a commanding position.  This allows you to see everyone who is entering the office.
  • When talking about the different sectors of the spa, the relationship sector (far right corner) is very important.  This area should be beautiful and clean to promote healthy relationships between the owner and clients, the owner and staff, and the staff and clients.  A happy staff will always attract happy clients who will be eager to return for services again and again.

I am loving the spa interior movement that is putting out environments that cannot be defined by a particular style class.  These environments  are sophisticated, fashion-forward and timeless.  Case and point:  this Portuguese spa and haven, situated in a historical building in the heart of Lisbon’s old town is adorned with classic styles (Eames, Gehry) and vintage pieces while fusing modern touches with rich pallets.  The flux from light and airy to exotic and almost primitive demonstrates typical Portuguese flair and fashion yet keeps us guessing.

Modern Mix of Classic Style and Vintage Pieces.

Eclectic Decor has rich pallets and vibrant color.

The salon is light and airy in direct contrast with the spa rooms.

Oh, and be sure to check out the spa owner’s brilliant 2010 Summer Fashion Collection.   I’ll take one of each!   http://www.alvesgoncalves.com

 

Color Trend: Spicy reds, browns, and pinks are the color of the season.  Accent your spa with comforting details that romanticize your guests including a warm bath filled with fragrant colorful flowers, soft cushy slippers, aromatic candles and fresh blooms.  Embellish your couples retreat with bamboo cotton linens and global fusion of exotic harmonies and ambient grooves.  Finish it all with a touch of decadence: rose champaign and red velvet cupcakes.

Rich warm browns tones create a candlelit glow around the room.  Add new pamper me textures like plush linens, blankets, cozy slippers,  or sheer draperies to further the mood.  Great example of subtle use of seasonal colors with the fresh hot pink flower blooms floating in water, you can see it just melts your soul!

This spa interior has warm dramatic wood tones, a variety of textures, and what’s that- Yes, it’s Fucshia!  Add a little sophisticated fun with small pops of this youthful color to differentiate your spa-goers experience.  What an amazing place to travel for an out of this world experience!

Make your spa a special retreat this Valentines Day season.  Create a atmosphere where couples can commune with soft fabrics, flickering candles and romantic touches.  One of the most important elements in a spa interior is a quiet atmosphere.  Adequate soundproofing in your walls between your treatment rooms is the best way to ensure your guests have privacy and a relaxing experience.   A curtain wall made from a beautiful fabric helps to absorb sound.  Another important detail is candle light which is synonymous with both spas and dreamy, romantic moments.  Spas today are using LED candles to create the illusion of a flame which is a cost effective and practical alternative to real candles.   A simple way to spruce up your treatment room for a special event is to simply change the linens.  A  new blanket or a decorative saddle can add a pop of color.  Top it off with a beautiful tray and an organic accent for an extraordinary couple’s escape.

How do you make your spa special for Valentine’s Day and couple’s getaways?

One of the most important details in any spa interior is how to engage the senses.  There are many ways to appeal to your guests’ sense of sight, touch, taste, sound and  smell.  Tranquil music for sound, plush robes for touch, a vase of fresh flowers for sight, a tray of spa snacks for taste and a fragrance diffuser for smell are simple and easy ways to accomplish this.  The sense of smell is one of the strongest as it is tied to emotions and memories. Keep scents subtle and seasonal to help guests connect to the space.

These diffusers are small enough to be placed on a candle shelf or in a corner. They have a quiet beauty that blends with any interior. We love the bamboo accent!

Adding artwork throughout your spa interior is a simple easy way to add interest and comfort to your space.  Cluster artwork in groups for maximum effect. Don’t be afraid to pair photography with abstract art and various mediums of different shapes and sizes to create a unique and sophisticated focal point.  A few examples of artwork in cool spa blues are featured below.
