The first time we walked into this building in late 2017, it reminded us of an old, abandoned barn. Needless to say, we knew it was going to take a clear vision and a heck of a lot of work to turn it into a space that was reminiscent of a SOHO loft, which was what our client had in-mind. This is the second salon for our client. the other location is in Barrington, which we designed in the summer of 2016. We knew we wanted to “amp up” the overall design by making it feel more industrial and eclectic. We incorporated a number of steel and wood finishes; used a number of vintage light fixtures; and installed wallcovering and tile that softened certain areas of the salon. The end result was a salon that has injected a lot of excitement & renewed energy in Downtown Long Grove.
