Creme of the Crop
For the ultimate relaxing experience in tranquil and stylish surroundings, take our favourite virtual tour this week of the stunning Creme Hair & Beauty.
Currently celebrating 20 years in business, the hair and beauty specialists moved into a beautiful new building seven years ago.
No ordinary salon, you'll find this polished business located inside an old church.
The striking historic architecture of the original church is clearly evident throughout whilst, at the same time, the interior has been beautifully renovated, styled and fitted with all the latest luxury furniture and fixtures.
It's a sophisticated blend of old and new marrying together perfectly to create a truly unique space.
Find Creme Hair & Beauty standing amongst a row of buildings which up the pretty shopping street of Oakham, in the heart of Rutland.
Push open the heavy wooden church door into the Victorian-tiled lobby, then walk through to the main salon where you'll find huge arched and paned windows, exposed brickwork and an impressive high wooden beamed ceiling.
The use of glass, mirrors, white walls and polished furniture all add to the sense of light and space. Occasional velvety purple walls add a dash of smooth colour to the surroundings, together with a gracious nod to the clerical beginnings of the building.
Relax & Unwind
Upstairs on the galleried floor the arched ceiling beams are even more of a striking feature close up, reaching over in rows to meet the brick walls. Add to this the line of mirrors and hanging lights, long white walls, and splashes of sun from the tall windows, and what you have is a stunning hair-styling space.
There are extra smaller beauty treatment rooms on this floor too, offering calm, quiet spaces in which to lie back and unwind.
Serene and historic on the outside, smart and contemporary within, Creme Hair & Beauty is a remarkable example of how a traditional old building can be re-designed and styled into something beautifully new.
