Casa Decor Madrid 2009. Viva México by Amelia Aran

I have to confess that I was surprised to discover the space decorated by Amelia Aran at Casa Decor Madrid 2009, one of the two terraces that crown the Luchana Palace. Amelia is a professional who develops her work in the children's world, developing furniture with clean and serene lines for the little ones.

That is why when I crossed the door of this terrace I had to re-verify its authorship, since it completely breaks with what has been seen in Aran's designs. That is the greatness of an artist, having a very defined style and despite this surprise, creating a different and magical universe. A challenge that is even greater when the space to be solved is a long and narrow terrace of just over two meters wide.

It is a fresh and cheerful outdoor space, a tribute to Mexico that is felt in the colors that bathe the walls. Blue, purple, pink, yellow, surround us, and we discover a mural in which drawings and figures representative of their culture follow one another: Chavela Vargas, wrestling, Zócalo Square, the Virgin of Guadalupe, Mariachi ...

They all form a collage surrounded by flowers and bright garlands on which several butterflies rest. We also find a fragment of Wedding Nights, that with such a tear, Joaquín Sabina y Chavela will sing duet.

We look at the ground, paved in the center with clear stone slabs surrounded by sand, forming a path that gives continuity to the terrace, an unexpected firm that takes us away from the urban environment.

High pots solve two fundamental questions, they function as containers of big plants that provide a refreshing and lush vegetation while structuring this long space, creating small intimate corners, differentiated and defined by successive colors.

The simple iron chairs and the big ones hanging light bulbs they make us long for the open-air parties, looking forward to the night to enjoy this terrace in all its splendor. If we liked it during the day, what influence will not come off at night, when the lights turn on the garlands and the colors offer even more mysterious nuances ...
