    I am thinking about decorating my salon in a kind of shbby chic way like boutiques are. I've been trying to explain what I mean to my mum but she's no idea. If anyone has that type of decor do you mind sharing your pictures so I can explain a rough idea of what I want to her. I saw a picture last night after I had done a search or 7 and I can't find it again. I don't want to copy how you have it I just want to show her some ideas.

    Thanks :)

    You can have a look at the photo's in my gallery if you like, I've only got a few on there but it's kind of shabby chic/french antique style.

    Unfortunately I don't have any photos to share but I think that would be gorgeous for a salon! Just say to you're mum "Laura Ashley" and "Cath Kidson" style. I suppose it's all light coloured furniture with baby blue and pink tones - a bit like the country look.

    Ooooo - I'd love to see a photo of yours when it's done!

    I have a shabby chic salon too. I have a laura ashley wall paper with birds on it and flowers, it actually looks oriental. And then I have furniture which has been made to look old in light pink, dusty pink. I have candles all over the place!!. Be careful not to make it look to twee.

    Sharkster I love your room and esp the colour of your walls, is that paint or paper?? Im looking for something similar :biggrin:

    And Emerald Beauty room is gorgeous, and so unusual.

    Thank you.

    It's just paint, a real nice pale sage green. Lot's of clients comment in how relaxing it is. I'll try to put some more photo's on later.

    I love shabby chic and boutique styles... Mine I think is quite shabby chic - pics are at Rouge Hair and Beauty - Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes

    I'm in the process of buying a second salon now, and am feeling slightly scared at the prospect of having to pay for and do up a second salon in the same style, but I want to keep my salons pretty much the same image across the board... So that's the price I pay I guess! LOL

    I am in love! Your salon is gorgeous. I've been thinking of going for the pink/black/silver look but having seen the red in your salon I'm in two minds now. Is pink and beauty a cliche?

    Can I ask where you got your furniture from, I'm on the look out for similar things. Especially what I assume is the reception desk (with the telephone on).

    And the window decals are lovely too, any idea where you got them from? I'm looking for something to go on a very large window (if I get the shop I want).

    Good luck with your second salon, if it looks as good as your first, you'll have the clients coming in thick and fast.
