Design School: Designer Tricks and Furnishings (Conclusion)
The cool palette of blue, green, and white set the stage for this nail spa's calming vibe
From a tea shop to a hotel, we now focus on a nail spa. The palette used gives the place a relaxing vibe, an ambiance apt for the services on offer. Lounge on one of the cushy armchairs or share a seat with a chum on the couch as you get your digits pampered. “We wanted to create a whimsical, charming, and creative space that would be very relaxing for the customers,” says Athena Maramag, a junior designer at Design Hirayama + Quesada. The whimsical and charming bit was achieved with a wall mural depicting nature, plus the country-fresh accessories dotting the space. Meanwhile, the creative mix of pillow cover patterns provides just a dose of spunk to toughen up the reign of pastels.
