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.
