We had total freedom to perform our work by Beriestain Interioristas so, being a hotel, we decided to pick a theme that would allow us to improvise, to combine our personal styles and to place a lot of related concepts to the environment that we were going to paint. The theme was “the dreams”, the dream world. This was the result.
