"As Nature Intended interiors, philosophy and design for living ~ A Lifestyle" ... My company tag line is more than just catchy advertising words. It represents how I approach all design projects. With any project, business or residential, I always consider the four classical elements: earth, water, air and fire. A peaceful, healthy sanctuary in tune with nature, as nature intended, can be created in any environment using any design style whether it’s modern, mid-century modern, traditional, shabby chic, coastal or an eclectic mix, my personal favorite.
One of my proudest design projects, Essentials MediSpa and Salon in Vera, Florida, is an excellent example of this philosophy. The four elements are literally and loosely interpreted throughout the spa's design. Starting with the reception area, a large custom designed wall fountain incorporating Florida coquina stone and copper colored glass tile represents the elements of earth and water. Setting the mood as you enter, this feature located at the reception desk enhances the clients’ experience by creating a tranquil experience before they have even finished checking in for their amazing services. Entering the robed waiting area, more natural elements representing earth include an elegant seashell chandelier, as well as As Nature Intended Interiors signature native Florida palm trees made of natural preserved palm fronds seen throughout the spa. Sheer aqua swirl pattern fabric drapes and the abundance of candles represent air and fire. The brown and aqua leaf patterned fabric on the furniture is another subtle interpretation of earth. I could go on to describe each treatment room, but I have a better idea... immediately book your Essentials spa day and experience this tranquil peaceful healthy sanctuary yourself!
Design with purpose to achieve a peaceful and healthy atmosphere as nature intended.
