What brought me to The Beauty Room on the corner of 43rd & Chicago, was Sonja, my go-to person when it comes to my eyebrows. You know how it is when you have someone good and they move to a new salon, you follow.
The Beauty Room moved to their present location in March of 2010. Mi Shaun, the owner, did a great job in creating a welcoming space. High ceilings, lots of natural light, dark chocolate velvet sofas, chandeliers, pink side chairs, and beautiful wallpaper. I was so pleased to see all the wallpaper I had to go back and take some photos. It’s all about the paper.
The damask on the far wall is a scrubbable, peelable, solid sheet vinyl. The wallpaper looks so rich and wonderful I had to run my hand across it to see if it was vinyl, fabric or paper. It looks so much more expensive than the actual cost.
This detail of the paper shows the pattern and the color. This image is actually closer to the true color than the first photo…the lighting makes it look golden.
On the back wall, the middle section is a flexible glass bead wallcovering, trimmed out in velvet wrapped molding. This type of wallpaper shows every seam, so Jane Hedin, Goddess of paperhangers, railroaded, or hung it horizontal, so she did not have any seams showing. The glass bead wallcovering is very heavy. Jane had another paper hanger stop by and help her with the install. This beadazzled accent wall gives the reception area an extra sparkle and touch of glam when stepping up to the front desk.
I know the photos do not do the space justice, but at least you get an idea of how wallcovering takes a space from, nothing out of the ordinary, to an amazing space.
The two damasks are from the Mirage Signature V and Bellagio books which Hirshfield’s carries at most locations. Hirshfield’s carries glass bead wallcovering from Maya Romanoff, and Enchanting Glass Bead Wallcovering which are similar to the product Mi Shaun used.
