Confection perfection

Posted on Mon, 22 Sep 2008 by midcenturyjo

Finished at last! Over the past few months we have been following the progress of a Marie Antoinette inspired confection of a hair salon designed by Scott Weston…. from intricate scale model through mock up and manufacture. Now Scott has sent us photos of the finished salon.

“As promised here are some images taken at practical completion with my builder of the hair salon. Everyone from builder, sub-contractor to client just thinks it looks like the model & are all very proud. We built it in record time 6 weeks from shell to beautifully built joinery fitments. Our client’s chic & quirky french style salon opens this Monday 22nd September 2008 at the IVY.”

Stunning! Stunning! Stunning!

Too glam for words – i am off to Sydney in October so shall be sure to book in.

I am dying. Marie-Antoinette is one of my fave movies thanks to the set design.

That design is painted on isn’t it? Or is the surface raised by that design In that traditional way of french design.

What a brilliant job! I was eagerly awaiting to see the trasformation after your earlier posts of his little box set – just wow!
He is a clever fella!

Ooh I’d get my hair cut here just for the experience.

Thanks for showing us the progress of this… I really loved the models too, I think they’d work as decoration rounf the house!

I’m gonna be honest with you: I’m probably gonna go to ANY salon that offers me cupcakes while I get my haircut! This one is SO interesting! Although, not really a fan of the ivy motif.
