Extreme Makeover: Spa Edition

Awaken Wellness and Rejuvenation Spa

AFTER: A cool-toned and low-VOC paint on Awaken’s exterior helps set the tone for the airy oasis that awaits guests. “We ripped out a big tree obscuring the door and did all new landscaping. We added holly, hawthorns, begonias, dwarf bamboo and roses, and used all-natural compost and organic fertilizer,” Lau says. “We also added stairs and twin blue spruce trees to flank the entrance. Our new Awaken leaf logo is made out of recycled aluminum. And we stained the concrete right in front of the front door to give it a homey feel—despite the industrial surrounds. We’re getting an awning soon too!”•
