BLANC BEAUTY BAR
Branding, Name Development, Interiors, Space Design
Located on the bustling and vibrant historic Magazine Street in New Orleans, Blanc Beauty Bar caters to clients who want to be treated with hair, nail, and other beauty services. The intent of the design was to keep the historic character and charm of the building, while adding contemporary and natural elements, and giving the space an open and airy feel that allows guests to relax and enjoy the salon experience. The existing drywall was removed in the nail and hair areas, exposing the rough and uneven texture of the original brick which was cleaned and brightened up with crisp white paint. Weathered iron and crystal light fixtures add a touch of glamour and rustic appeal which contrasts with the more modern design elements. A long concrete bar faced with angled wood planks serves as a focal feature which ties the reception lounge to the nail bar area, where clients can sit on comfortable leather bar stools and sip a glass of champagne or wine while getting pampered.
