Oh, I have a garden for you today. It is an artist’s paradise near near San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. When you see a living room like this, my first thought (besides wow!)…is, what must the garden behold?
The garden, which is part of the greater complex called Casa Las Ranas, is more an art installation than a home and studio. Partners in creation are Anado McLauchlin and his husband Richard Schultz and they describe it as an homage to all outsiders, gardeners, and folk artists the world over.
The eclectic home is covered in tile mosaic collages and decorated with McLauchlin’s altars. Every wall and even ceilings are different colors.
Anado’s studio (he is an artist) in La Cieneguita and the house and grounds of Casa Las Ranas (House of Frogs) are available for tour groups or private individual visits upon appointment. If you would like more information on visiting Casa las Ranas contact Anado at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call from the United States at 011-52-415-155-8044 or if in San Miguel at 155-8044.
