Every human needs a friend; every pet needs human care. This simple phrase about human-pet relationship drove a Ukrainian based studio Yakusha Design to develop a project of a full service grooming salon. High ceiling 200 square-metre space includes 3 zones: a grooming itself with such beauty-care services as bathing, trimming & styling, a big lounge area, that provides a pampering, stress-free experience for pet owners and area for personal hygiene.
For interior of a hairdresser for dogs and cats in one of the elite areas of city designers chose a monochrome warm sepia colour shades and high-quality natural materials. Light wood in furniture, quartzite rock on the floor and steel on walls are mixed with ceramic décor and soft shapes of modular sofas.
Designers also used the contrast in dimensions by emphasizing the height of walls in the space and earthiness of sofas. Conventionally, the interior has been developed in the horizontal plane, giving to space even more volume.
Another design trick is the abundance of circle shapes in the interior. Round sconces, a mirror, rounded sofas and tables – all this adds softness to the space.
Main idea of interior – to keep it laconic and comfy. While the pets are brought to their beauty, their owners comfortably sitting on the soft islands, relaxing with a cup of coffee or tea from the lounge bar. To pass the time, visitors are also offered a wide assortment of caring products for domestic animals – from organic shampoos to fragrances.
“The main challenge of this project was to create not just “another grooming salon” in our city, but a space for socialising for the pet`s owners, while they are waiting for their furry friends” – said chief designer of studio, Victoria Yakusha. – We have a Belgian shepherd for 5 years now and he loves his little beauty routine. Therefore, the project was very moving and fun”.
