When personal care treatments were allowed to resume in San Francisco, there was one caveat: they had to be performed outside. Maca Huneeus, interior designer, rose to the challenge and created a backyard venue for Spa Radiance, according to Vouge

Huneeus took her beachfront backyard in Stinson Beach and created a spa like oasis where Angelina Umansky, owner of Spa Radiance, could continue her services. 

“Angelina has a Fortuny lamp in her studio in the city and it always reminded me of, years ago, staying at the Royal Tents in Pushkar, getting a facial and looking at a block-print Fortuny fabric,” says Hunneus. “I said we should get one of those tents and do something really fabulous.”

The backyard setup is fitted with a Bohemian tent surrounded by wildflowers, tall grass, and a natural wood fence for ultimate privacy. 

Umansky is currently offering her full service menu at the pop-up location.
