A SPA OUT WEST

SOURCING TEXTILES FOR A BEAUTIFUL, HOLISTIC SPA IN THE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

I made a new friend at a pop up shop last winter. She picked up a beautiful white bedspread for her mother saying, “My mom is really going to love this, she is really going to love this!” Exciting, I thought, and how special that this woman knows her mother’s aesthetic so well.

One coffee later, this customer became a friend, and her mother wasn’t just her mother, she was the brilliant mind behind one of the most exclusive spas in the Texas Hill Country. Both her design eye and her business sense blew me away.

Just before the spa opened, I took a tour of the space, spent some time with her and her daughter and listened to their vision. We swapped stories, shared wine, and decided that the biggest need for the spa was softening the gorgeous but hard lines in the architecture.

So I headed down to South Mexico to find more white bed spreads for the massage tables, local ceramics for the ring bowls, and have robes custom made for their clients. See below for the full story.
