    Client brief

    The Contoured Arches is an upmarket market makeup studio located in New Delhi led by renowned makeup artist Jasneet. The client wanted an offbeat yet classy space that reflected her art all that surrounds it. She wanted it away from the usual herd and seeked a pop space where interiors translated makeup trends, colours, shimmers, and techniques.

    For this, the design team set out to start off with the story of makeup and fashion meets interiors.

    Concept Note

    The design team started firstly with brainstorming over the makeup and its impact on women today. Social media awareness and various mediums of knowledge and entertainment have brought the makeup industry to new heights and a new following among all age groups. It’s is seen today as a means of empowerment after feeling confident.

    The art of makeup involves colour palettes of various types, shimmers, tools, and various techniques. From this, we derived the idea of having a burst of colour and adding highlights of shimmer in gold. The logo was also an integral part of the concept. The logo of the makeup artist is in the form of flower petals. From this, we extracted the shape of the petals and incorporated it into our main feature – wall mirror frames. The whole concept thus can be summed up revolving around colours and the identity of the artist.

    Design Process

    Layout : the layouting of the above is very simple and neat. Makeup stations line up against the two longer lengths of the rooms. One side has multiple stations for junior artist while the opposite side has one exclusive for the the head artist of the studio.

    Each station has its own counter with adequate storage and plug points for appliances. These plug points are neatly set inside the counter that can be reached like pop outs. The mirrors are the main element of the space and they also give a sense of space to each station placed there.

    Each mirror is set in arched shaped frames that are overlapped with other arches inset with alternating antique finish mirrors and looking mirrors. These create a demarcation for the stations as well as giving a flower petal look on the wall. At the further end of the space sits a lip-shaped pop looking sofa with a lounge armchair with tables. On the opposite side, the wall is dedicated for shoots post each makeup which comprises of a texture in cream colour and Make up By Jasneet logo for branding purposes.

    Lighting: the lighting of a makeup studio as one can imagine is of utmost importance. It requires just optimum for Makeup applications. The team sought to keep the tone of the light natural so as to understand the colours better. The spots are placed strategically on tracks to avoid glare and dark spots. The ceiling has a cove running in the Center with round cutout’s for grand chandeliers to add luxe and oomph factor to space.

    Colours: the design team’s very inspiration was makeup and all that surrounds it and as the brief asked of them to make it pop and stylish the team took to play with a burst of colours. The makeup stations are in a bright powder blue colour with gold highlights at the bottom legs. The mirrors are set in brushed gold arched frames for the shimmer aspect. The chairs are in black for practicality and the flooring is a stark contrast of white and black. The tiles are cut in length and laid diagonally. Upon closer inspection, they show a hint of terrazzo texture. The colours flow beautifully into each other and form a story.

    Central element: The main feature of the space is the arched element running on the walls that form the central part of the interiors of this space. These were meticulously designed, calculated, and then executed with precision on-site. The arched frames lie at different depths from the wall to give an impression of levels in the petals. These further going join together and at a glance give an impression of petals in flower. The mirrors inset them are also in two finished. The front ones are clear looking mirrors and the ones behind are inset with antique finished. These further elaborate the cause.
