| interiors | Tuggle wanted a homey look where clients could feel welcome and comfortable but with just a touch of a hair salon. After Addison consulted with Tuggle, she went to work. And, work she did. After shopping and decorating, the project was turned around in just six weeks. The salon opened last October. “The hairstylists love working here be- cause of what Summer has done,” Tuggle said. Tuggle already had some great an- tiques to use as foundation to build upon to mix the old with the new. The soft color palette of pale grays and white is infused with pops of red. The salon is organized and pretty with textured pillows, throws and personalized touches. Antique vanities are used for hair sta- tions and three china cabinets were repur- posed and placed throughout the salon. Furniture was painted with a flat or satin paint and distressed using a stain or an- tique glazing. Forever in the hunt for items to use for decorating, Addison found old-fashioned rustic bed springs at the dump. “We added lights and grapevine and are using them for overhead light fixtures,” she said. Coach lights from a Sea Island resi- dence flank a sofa in the waiting area. The lights were stored in Tuggle’s barn for 25 years. Addison even incorporated a door from Tuggle’s grandmother’s 100-year-old house. Addison shops in no particular places throughout the region but her two staple stores are Hobby Lobby and TJ Maxx. Her one complaint about Hobby Lobby is that the shopping carts are not large enough. “When shopping for the salon’s Christmas decorations, I had to use seven buggies,” she said with a twinkle in her eye. The salon featured numerous Christ- mas trees and almost every inch was deco- rated. The stylists’ room featured a 12-foot table decked out for the holiday and gar- land wrapped around the fireplace mantel. Antique pieces are mixed in with new accessories. They have been repurposed and take on a new life. 70 February - March 2019 Thomasville Scene
