Wellness Retreat at the Philharmonic House of Design
The Strand, Dana Point, California
Esterley’s design approach was to transform the dark subterranean room without windows into a light-infused healing space for parents. Here, he created a peaceful, serene massage room and retreat to escape the stress of hectic family routine — a place for mom and dad to connect and recharge. A pure standout of Sacred Living design was his custom-designed, floor-to-ceiling chromatherapy light fixtures. Changing from light blue to aquamarine, one felt as though floating on water as they looked up onto an azure ceiling treatment, highlighted with the projection of soft rippling waves. To complete the room’s healing affect, Esterley then added a state-of-the-art Panasonic shiatsu massage chair, motorized professional massage table, environmental sound music and aromatherapy sound diffusers to completely rejuvenate and restore balance to one’s mind, body, and spirit.
