Redesigned and primed – COEL’s Richmond House Beauty Project

The talented design team at COEL have recently finished the style and fit out for Richmond House Beauty.

COEL were instructed to lead the transformation of the Georgian part commercial/part residential property into a luxury concept beauty salon and aesthetic practice.

Amy Matthews, owner of Richmond House Beauty gave a clear and detailed vision on what she wanted COEL to help her achieve; to dream up a destination for her customers which exudes sophisticated chic with a contemporary Soho vibe. In creating the interior design COEL had to execute the exciting challenge to form a restful and indulgent haven with specific rooms to offer clinical cosmetic procedures.

COEL married two styles in blending a balance between the sleek, clean lines of some of the treatment rooms alongside the soft, stylish decor of other areas where customers could relax and replenish.

The design team wanted the salon to be a very immersive experience allowing the customers to feel comfortable to both relax and wander around and explore. As the salon houses a carefully curated selection of must-have products, rather than place these desirables behind a counter they are celebrated on cleverly positioned shelves. Art features elevate the walls, whilst plant and flower displays bring nature in to help frame this luxurious environment. By implementing a combination of gold finishes, high contrast colours and shapes, feature lighting, black accents, light oak and velvet fabrics the stage was now set. The result is a salon which is inviting and enticing; it has an allure of casual elegance and calm.

Richmond House Beauty is a space to enjoy peace and serenity and to recharge your mind, body and soul.

“We asked COEL to think outside the box of a traditional beauty salon, to create a space that would WOW clients just as much as the exceptional service and treatments for which we are known. We wanted to get people talking and the finished product has certainly achieved that!

COEL’s designers Katie and Megan, took the time to understand our wish list for design and technical requirements and we were blown away by how accurately they had captured this in the initial concept design. Throughout the whole project, nothing was too much trouble for the team – there was always someone at the end of the phone to willingly assist at every stage in the project.

The finished salon has exceeded all expectations and has created a whirlwind of interest in the local area. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending COEL to anyone who is looking for a professional, creative and friendly team to manage their project to the very highest standards. We will definitely be using COEL for Richmond House Beauty No.2!” Quote from Amy Matthews, owner of Richmond House Beauty.
