Owners’ comment:
“As one’s eye drifts towards the back of the building, the bold lines of the retail space soften with each bend and turn. The wall colors become slightly darker and warmer. As clients move deeper into the space, they shed the stress of the day and slip into relaxation.”

Judges’ comments:
“I love how fresh this salon space feels. It’s modern and clean with well-planned custom spaces.”—Gallagher

“A cozy area that allows guests to relax before their spa appointments—warm and calming.”—Leger
