• A taste of … modern … Morocco!

    Lugging a giant authentic lantern back from Stansted airport, past confused members of the public, I felt safe in the knowledge that I had the perfect starting point for the rustic Moroccan-style I had been dreaming of. I’d spotted it tucked between a banjo and a man selling ”Marks and Spencers” necklaces on the streets of Tangiers.

    Now i’m faced with a bit of conundrum. Do I stick to the shimmering metallics and soft purples formal look? Or go for the spicey, earthy toned, cushion-strewn look? Both are equally Moroccan-inspired, equally modern and equally GORGEOUS!

    What would you all go for? I’m swaying towards the shimmering embossed metals of this living room, myself.

    Ooooh, but this living room looks inviting, too?

    To be honest, given the sheer weight of my recent Tangien purchase, whether it’s Moroccan-style or country-style, that lantern WILL be included!

      Unfortunately, neither of the rooms speak to my own Moroccan vision. Did you see last winter’s catalog from Zara? I was freaking out over the tiles, the patterns, the sense of height and history. I would choose the first room and then search for Moroccan tile work to cover the walls and insert a sense of lushnesss and sensuality to the room with reds veering into the warmer tones. And carpets! At least 1 carpet has to strew across the room tying all the colors together.
