We are loving this beautiful new pedicure sink now available for today’s nail spa and salon.   The first ceramic vessel-style sink on the market made specifically for pedicures!   It is truly a modern classic that will fit into any decor and the generously sized round sink with a flat bottom is the ideal size and shape.

The properties of ceramic make this an ideal basin for pedicures.  The non-porous sealed surface prevents bacteria from penetrating so your sink is sanitary.  It is easy to clean and low maintenance with a smooth touchable surface and flat bottom so that it is comfortable for the feet.

Another reason to love this sink?  It is hand-made and a sustainable green product made of recylced and all natural materials with a coating that has no VOC’s so the bowl is toxin-free! 

This vessel pedicure sink gives you creative freedom in design with multiple installation layouts:  use with a cushy-chair, a built-in bench or your unique design.   Available in white and black.  Custom colors upon request.

Specifications:  Model No. CL-1800, 18″ diameter, 8.5″ high with drain hole.


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?

After recently attending the grand opening and launch for The Hand & Foot Spa in London’s Chelsea, my feet and hands were happy even while jet lag set in.   The exclusive event was filled with celebration, champagne, canapes, entertainment and plenty of hand and foot treatments!   Adding to the excitement  was seeing our completed design work and custom furniture, in collaboration with owner              Donna Haar-Jorgensen’s vision, come to life.

The vibe was cool and the scene was happening as everyone came together to welcome The Hand & Foot Spa’s third and flagship location into London’s Chelsea.

Custom bar stools at the Hand & Foot Spa are sleek and modern

Donna’s vision was a modern and stylish space that would enhance the ultimate experience in hand and foot care.  The result is an environment that offers an unrivalled level of service, expert knowledge and the strictest standards of clinical hygiene while ensuring that guests leave feeling relaxed and pampered.

Our custom-made spa pedicure chairs deliver the ultimate in luxury foot care!

These beautiful spa pedicure chairs were created and engineered by our design team, made here in the USA and journeyed via truck, then train and then sea vessel to arrive on the shores of England.  They apparently liked the trip!
What else made the voyage?   Custom lounge seating, guest chairs, pedicure benches, pedi-tech stools, handbag trolleys, wall coverings, mosaic tile, custom drapery panels, accent pillows, a beverage dispenser and a scent machine!
The Hand & Foot Spa’s extensive menu of services offers everything from an express manicure to a luxurious 65 minute deep conditioning pedicure, podiatry, men’s services, nail enhancements and more.

The Orb warm oil and wax hand treatment was fabulous!

 With the  furniture and equipment now set in place and comfortable in their new home, the Hand and Foot Spa is a welcome place for guests to enjoy for years to come.
I’ve settled back into the warm summer weather of Chicago and thinking that I am ready for a pedicure once again. 
          Hmmm….maybe British Airways has a flight available tonight?
Wishing the Hand & Foot Spa success & best wishes for their new flagship location!

It’s mid April and although Spring officially began a few weeks ago, Chicago’s weather didn’t get the message.  We woke up to snow this morning and it’s making me wish more and more for warm, sunny days and time spent outside.  Here are some beautiful outdoor spa spaces  to get my mind off our wintery morning, and to inspire your dream spa.

The Nusa Dua Westin Resort in Bali outdoor massage pagodas.  The warm orange massage bedding really adds drama to this already beautiful space.

The Mykonos Grand in Greece at sunset.

This massage room at the Four Season Koh Samui in Thailand blends nature with their interior with tall open windows overlooking the forest.  The combination leaves the space feeling private and warm, while still having the airiness of the outdoors.

I couldn’t help but share this beautiful outdoor bath at the Madikwe Hills Private Lodge in Africa.  Kick back, relax, and wait for an elephant to stroll by!

Meditation space at the Blue Palace Elouda Spa in Crete, Greece.

I also had to share this amazing lounge area at the Blue Palace in Crete.  Such a striking architectural space, you’ll feel like you’re sipping wine with the gods at this Grecian retreat.
