Unit 04- Concept Design Reference Pictures

Rewinding to unit 02 and 03 , where we were asked to create space and environment via concept art, this unit as well as others to come will ask for the same, so for an accurate space, in this case, a Beauty Parlour, I started to research the colour palette and the style, as you can see in this post Here.
On the other side to keep this accurate vision of my world, I needed to research some 50's Beauty Shops, Parlours or Salons, as you like to call it, to better understand what really lies inside and any small details that will keep my site up to its time- the 50's.

I found some pictures of this Shops, with the 50's style

As it is visible, the predominant colours are the horrendous pinkish-tones, greenish tones, blueish-tones and yellowish-tones, even though they are not really appealing to us now, in the 50's and 60's were the colours of any "American Dream".
On the other hand the rest of the pictures better show people going to Salons in the 50's, and all equipment there placed.
