Casa Decor is a large container of contrasts, where we can pass, just by crossing a bridge, from one environment to another diametrically opposite. Maybe in this edition of Casa Decor Madrid 2009, the inner courtyard Be the space that offers a more surprising game of differences.
Located on the ground floor and extended to almost all of the floors thanks to its green wall, it is a haven of delicacy that we access from the cafeteria, decorated in the garage style, so that once we leave behind the tire columns of this, we enter a world of smells and textures that immerse us in a stopped time, making us forget last.
Projected and decorated by Frédéric d'Oultremont, Armelle Fenouil and Alfonso Imedio, antique dealers with headquarters in the Madrid trail, this is a space that dignifies the most damaged area of the houses, the patio, which only serves to ventilate and give light to the interior rooms, and here takes center stage, turned into a subtle area importance.

The furniture, at most two iron standing consoles, support several classic sculptures that are trimmed on two mirrors. At your feet, several terracotta cups that complement the environment perfectly. In the center, a few coffee tables invite you to chat and relax.
The theatrical auction puts the great Hanging lamp That seems suspended from nowhere. A great metal specimen that captures attention. Indirect lighting is very careful to highlight and offer one more point of magic in this refreshing and relaxing space.
It is sad to go back on our steps and leave this little triangle of peace. Here we could meditate and reflect for hours ...
