Casa Decor Madrid 2009. Designed for her by Marisa Fuertes

Delicacy and staging. This is the association of ideas that comes to my mind when I enter the space of Marisa Fuertes, Thought for her. A delicacy that in some aspect plays a trick if we take this space as a habitable and practical place. Divided into two sections, upon entering we receive a sculpture by José María Casanova, silence in the small hall, inviting us to enter and relax the look.

Conceived as a small urban apartment, fabrics and textures deliberately seek an environment full of softness and harmony. The set is very nice, it's nice to be here, wrapped in an environment that feeds the spirit.

It is hard to believe that we have entered a kitchen, but that is the function of the small room next to the room. A showcase in which various glass elements are exposed welcomes, while on the opposite wall, a stone countertop on which a plate is embedded, and a coffee maker integrated into the wall, are all the gadgets we find.

A rich drapery of silk with brocades and embroidery, reminiscent of the costumes of the French nobility of the nineteenth century, give a green water hue to the space and an antique chair provides the final auction.

We are undoubtedly in an office in which to dispatch a coffee for the intimate talk, beautiful but without another riskier function. Without more space to store than the glass showcase, it is an artifice, an unreal dream.

Before moving on to seating area, we see aside an antique piece of furniture retro line that marks the border between the two environments. From there, everything is subtle and enveloping. To one side, a magnificent front of aged mirror, a tendency very seen in the sample, reflects the light that enters through the windows located in front. The finish of the mirror is a complete success, since it reduces the sometimes aggressive effect of the living reflex.

The mirror covers the entire wall, and shelters a large metal console. Two large shakers complete the set to which a small iron bench with circular shapes seats.

The walls are covered with white stucco, and the low and straight chimney, another trend marked for this year, is dressed in gold inside. The wooden floor gives a rustic touch, providing a slight contrast. And on the soft carpet, rest the star of the room, a divan formed by three rectangular modules of different sizes, upholstered in pastel silk and night blue.

The windows are covered with long taffeta falls, delicately striped blue. Two sculptures that bring a theatrical touch to the ensemble are shown in front of the windows.

At one end there is a reading zone, formed by two white armchairs and a small circular table, after which we see niches lined with gold leaf.

We look up and see a luminary that emits a special magic, cylinders of different sizes are born from the ceiling and give a warm light full of nuances.

The set can not be more charming and sedative. It is hard not to take off your shoes and enjoy the spongy touch of the carpet, the cooing of the ram cushion or the caress of the fine velvet.

Improve your lawn in four steps

Summer is the time when we enjoy the lawn of our houses but it is also the time when it suffers the most. Not only the high temperatures, but the incessant step over it end up undermining its beauty and, if we do not want to have a patatal for September (another thing is that you like it and you want to devote to the intensive cultivation of potatoes in your garden, which is an option totally respectable), we have to pamper this delicate part of the exteriors of our house.
