Did you all see this exciting post by Desire To Inspire? A stunning new French beauty salon is currently in the design stage by Scott Weston.
"We are currently designing a hair salon in Sydney based on the theatrical flair of a french salon once owned by Madame Pompadour & referencing madame pompadour pink. There are two distinct zones the cool monastic washing/reception zone & the witty french salon as cutting room. Clients arrive & sit within a pastel pink suede banquette where they are greeted with a cup of tea in a porcelain teacup & mini cupcakes by staff .
We have re-interpreted the typical french apartment salon & have created 3 metre high graphically printed panels to cocoon the space. A large bevelled mirror & console is located at each cutting station with furniture by Maletti. A suspended ceiling of ornate plaster cornices & rosettes house 4 large non-random lights by moooi. A solid timber herringbone floor with a huge pastel pink velvet curtain softens the architecturally graphic interior. The salon is screened of by an 8 metre linear cabinet finished in embossed silver with a filigree motif & houses the storage, office & kitchen facilities. The ritual room is a white glowing box where the client has their hair washed & coloured. The space is internally cocooned in a graphic laminate ivy print. Dotted strategically throughout the salon are quirky porcelain references to our beloved madame. Opens in September 2008."
I am so excited to see and experience this amazing place I'm practically jumping up n down in my chair. Of course, I'll probably need to take out a second mortgage on my home to for a simple haircut but hey it's worth it! And it opens in September! I know where i'll be celebrating my birthday ;)
What a dream it must be to work on this project. The concept is genius. I envision this place will explode with popularity. A quintessential girly experience - Outstanding!
