Our team of interior designers specializes in spa and medical spa design.  One of our most rewarding projects was creating the spa-inspired environment for the newly opened Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Women’s Mammogram and Ultrasound department.  

Diagnostic waiting area is soothing & relaxing.

Our goal was to enhance the patient experience with spa-inspired  interior design details that effectively promotes wellness, provides comfort and reduces patient anxiety while maintaining the highest level of standards for a professional clinical environment.

Unexpected and special details decrease patient stress.

Through effective and strategic design each patient is cared for in a soothing, nurturing and comfortable environment where every detail was created to reduce stress, promote wellness and facilitate healing.

 Our services included conceptual design and development, space planning, lighting design, color analysis, artwork and wall decor, detailed accessorizing, furniture selection, procurement and staging.

Patient's are offered cucumber and lemon-infused water.

Inspired by the spa industry, medical facilities are changing to be more calming and relaxing, one that postively effects how patients respond to treatments, connect to their environment and heal the mind, body and spirit.

With hints of fall in the air and mingling thoughts of the English countryside still on my mind, I want to soak up every bit of Tory Burch’s luxe  fall fashion collection. 

Smart, stylish and highly textural with layers of tweed, leather, shearling, knits and silk this yummy collection has inspired my relaxed yet luxurious spa escape to the Calcot Manor and Spa in Gloucestershire, England.

The Calcot Manor’s building dates back to the 14th century, is set over 220 acres and offers guests a relaxing and luxurious experience with modern amenities and tasteful decor.

This idyllic outdoor spa setting is a nod to crisp shorter days and calls for a slowed pace,  thick plush robes and plans for a cozy relaxed evening by a warm fireplace. 

A hot stone massage is definately in order!

The Calcot Manor and Spa is a welcoming country house with  modern details and a twist on tradition.

  Not unlike Tory’s fall collection.  Classic and cool, sporty and feminine, it is a welcome embrace for the season.

My favorite time of year for all things fashion both for the interior and the closet!  Get fall ready with layers upon layers:  throws, pillows, candles…..

A deconstructed jacket perhaps?
