Aesthetician Danuta Mieloch, founder of Rescue Spa, opened her first spa and skin clinic in Philadelphia and recently opened the doors to her latest project in New York City’s Flatiron neighborhood to much fanfare. The boutique and spa stocks beloved labels such as Biologique Recherché, Valmont, Vintner’s Daughter and MBR which are used in the face and body treatments. When she leased the space, it needed a lot of work. “The original columns were so magnificent that I wanted to preserve them but the rest of the space was a total disaster that required a full gutting,” says Mieloch. “I love the combination of new with the old (in this case the columns). I do the same thing with my facials, bridging old world techniques and modern day technology together for unique treatments.” A Lindsey Adelman light fixture and vintage Parisian Street lights give light and depth to the elegant and clean space, which was designed by Polish interior designer Michal Pulaczewski. “Like me, there is both a New York and European vibe, I may be Polish but I am also a New Yorker,” she says. “I curated special elements such as cameos and old paintings in repurposed frames (one even has a photo of my mom).”
