A new look for Unity Nails and Skincare

Last November, Jeany at Unity Nails and Skincare in Lake Mary, Florida asked if I could help with a new look for 2013. We were happy to oblige!

Like most of our clients, Jeany knew exactly what she wanted the space to look and feel. What she needed was the help to pull it all together and execute a complete design, in steps A.Clore Interiors!

We just completed phase 1 of the design, which is the front end of the shop and includes the waiting area, retail display, beauty bar and reception desk. We are thrilled to show you how the process went!

Here is a look at some before shots of the reception area:

The 3D renderings and floor plans really helped Jeany gain perspective for how all the parts and pieces would fit together. Due to time and budge restraints, we specified items that could be found locally.

And here is the final product:

The waiting area becomes a focal feature by adding visual interest and reflection to the space. Not only does the mirrored wall elude to the sense of a larger space, the honeycomb pattern and variegated tones add a touch of glamour. The custom nail polish holder is a fabulous way to display the endless nail color possibilities – and super easy to make and install!

One of Jeany’s requests was for a beauty bar. To achieve this look, we found a remnant piece of granite and had it polished and installed over wood corbels. This was super easy and really makes a statement! The display unit was a perfect fit for the window size! Proof that some times the Design God’s are in our favor! This was a genius solution for product display from the outside-in!!
