46 ASCP Skin Deep Winter 2023 YOU MIGHT HAVE THE BEST services in town. You might even have the skills of a magician (or at least that's what your last client told you). But if you don't have a space that's both professional and aesthetically pleasing, there's a chance you could lose your clients' interest and loyalty. That's where design and decoration come into play. To get you on your way, we consulted Sarah Barnard, interior designer and owner of Sarah Barnard Design in Santa Monica, California, for her top spa trends. BRING THE OUTSIDE IN A connection to nature is increasingly part of a comforting and luxurious atmosphere. Natural woods, deep shades of greens, plants, and flowers all contribute to a comfortable and welcoming environment. As biophilia becomes a more present part of interior design, your space can benefit from this approach, creating a softer, less minimal aesthetic. (RE)DECORATE Many spas are adopting more natural and organic products and methods as part of their offerings, and this attitude can be reflected in design choices. Responsibly made materials and vintage or reclaimed items are stylish and reflect salon and client ethics. Vintage items, in particular, add eclecticism and a sense of nostalgia that can contribute to your clients' relaxation. SOLO SEATING A less uniform approach to furnishing is on the horizon, with more individualized seating in waiting areas replacing shared sofa spaces. Some people may now value more distance in shared spaces, and comfortable lounge chairs offer cozy seating while providing some solitude. You might be interested in mixing and matching chairs for a unique approach. Spruce Up Your Space Keep clients coming back by incorporating these interior design trends INTERIOR DESIGN
