Olioboard Inspiration – Relaxing Mother’s Day Spa Inspiration

Entry #2404, May 10, 2013

Today we continue Stagetecture’s feature ‘Olioboard Inspiration‘. Last week you enjoyed Annette Dunlap’s– ‘A Garden-Inspired Mother’s Day Brunch  and this week I bring you Eddie Wood a member of the Facebook Olioboard Fan Room. I asked him to inspire us with a Mother’s Day theme and he outdid himself with these gorgeous spa inspiration ideas for Mom.  Eddie sets the scene of a Parisian apartment that anyone would love to spend a lovely Mother’s day in. Whether you are seeking ideas for a gift, or for yourself, look at these spa-inspired ideas just waiting for a long relaxing soak!

Additionally, Eddie has a gorgeous line of Euro Chic Collection pillows available (see them at bottom of post). Pillows in his boards are all his originals.

‘Relaxing Mother’s Day Spa Inspiration’ –  Eddie Wood

Home Spa Retreat

What a treat it is to pamper one self in a luxury home spa.

This space was designed for sheer rest and relaxation and offers incredible comfort and beauty.

I’ve chosen a quite cozy room embellished with luxurious furnishing that any mother would love to indulge herself in.

Setting The Stage

A copper bathtub sits center stage under an opulent chandelier, while the glow of the fireplace sets the mood for total relaxation.

Imagine yourself soaking in bubbles with the sound of a crackling fire, soft music and perhaps a glass of champagne,
as the sweet aroma of old fashioned roses and sweet peas fill the air.

Light ~ Furnishings ~ Accents

I love the light in this space, so I’ve used a privacy screen with frosted glass to defuse the sun and provide privacy from the unadorned windows.

A small make up table and chair are neatly nestled into the folding screen, highlighted by an extending wall sconce and antique mirror.

Flanking the fireplace rest a wicker and wood settee adorned with pillows and soft throws _ The perfect spot for a book and cup of tea.

The floor is carpeted with the loveliest pattern of exotic birds and florabunda, bringing the outdoors in, complimenting the unique vignette of a mounted peacock and side table for bath oils and sea sponges.

Comfort is the key

Comfort is the key word when designing a home spa, surrounding yourself with beautiful things that help you relax and unwind.

Remember, lighting is also key in creating a relaxing atmosphere, and this space is an excellent example. I use bulbs 40 watt or less in lamps where I need to have soft low light. A dimmer switch is wonderful if you have over head chandeliers.

All in the details

The coffered ceiling is just beautiful and adds another touch of grandeur to the room.

Bringing in a family air-loom like the sterling silver trophy here makes the space more personable. Perhaps something that was dear to your mother or grandmother.

This is your personal space to be alone and free from stress, so make it as comfy as possible.
