Palm trees swaying in the breeze, waves crashing on the beach, the sun warm on your skin…. there’s nothing quite like a tropical vacation!   Why not recreate the feel of the island life and give your spa-goers a mini-vacation each time they visit?

Our Inspiration:

Angsana Spa of Cape Town, South Africa

Couple's Spa Room at Angsana Spa

Reception Area and Retail

Glow I, Glow II, & Glow III

Get the look with tropical-paradise-inspired artwork.  The Glow series is reminiscent of sunlight filtered through lush banana leaves.

Udon Guest Chair

The Udon woven wood guest chair has a beautiful Wenge wood finish.  It’s also a commercial grade furniture piece made to stand the test of time.

Display Tables

Show off your favorite spa products for your guests to bring home with stacking display tables.  Coconut sugar scrub anyone?

Waran Lounger

Bring the feeling of a luxury resort anywhere in the world with seating made of natural materials like rattan and deep-hued woods.  Make cleaning easy with removable, washable cotton seat covers.

Pietra Borgogna Porcelain Tile

Stone flooring is synonymous with tropical locales, so get the feeling of cool tile under your feet with durable porcelain.  You don’t have to worry about staining or cracking, and full color body porcelain makes accidental scratches and chips barely noticeable.

Antigua Treatment Table

Make your clients and therapists happy with this multifunction spa table.  It’s not just pretty to look at!  This table is a fully functional workhorse with super quiet hydraulic lifting,  space for a hot towel cabinet, built-in electrical, and an electric flex top.

Spa Linens

Carry your spa’s theme into your treatment room with soft spa linens.  Be creative with your spa tables – add a tray with a fresh flower and an artful arrangement of tea, a bamboo mat with rolled towels, or a beautiful fabric saddle in an accent fabric.  Anything to make your clients feel welcome and comforted!

Breathtaking style will transform your spa interior into a soothing and tranquil environment.  Sky blues, cool grays, lavender accents, creamy whites.  An interior that fuses modern elements with zen details.  Organic simplicity, water elements, stainless steel construction.  Pure Spa—Pure Design—Engaging Decor.

Blomus Exterior SpaceCaptivating this tranquil space has all the elements for an relaxing spa.  Fusing of  fire and water elements against a soft warm color palette.  You immediately feel at ease.  The fusing of style is evident with the modern water feature and rustic wood floor.

Reclining BuddhaAdd a interesting sculpture for personal reflection,like this reclining Buddha from http://www.spadecor.com

Incorporate natural elements to help clients reconnect.  It can be as simple as this piece of artwork, or a vase of flowers set on a table. Check out the large variety of spa inspired organic artwork at http://www.spadecor.com

Reed VasesAdd tranquil spa blue but with accents like these reed bottle vases.  Perfect in a cluster to add interest and easily change up your interior style, even if just for the season!

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!

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.
