Mondays masterpiece: Morocco me – part 1

Hey peeps, happy Monday to ya!

This weekend was a whirlwind of Indonesian and Vietnamese furniture oogling, I am IN LOVE WITH the furniture stores here in Singapore.  However there is a bit of a lack of Moroccan goodies (which I err reluctantly admit makes sense as it is not actually in South East Asia…) so I thought I’d go on a hunt for my own this week.

The Riad Noir d’Ivoire boutique hotel in Marrakech is one of my favourite go-to’s for Moroccan design inspiration, I do hope you likey!

You can’t put a foot wrong with one or two or fifty Moroccan lanterns in my opinion:

And doesn’t this dining area look exquisite too?!

I think I would have added a couple of pops of colour to this scene, but other than that I think there is literally no more perfect terrace in all the land:

And the hotel suites are also a masterclass in Moroccan design – feast your peepers on these beauts!

Bananas, no?!

Ok, I am off to dream up our roof terrace design, have a sneaky suspicion it won’t be quite as fabulous as the one above alas…

    After years of wistfully dreaming of Balinese design now that it’s within your grasp you want Moroccan?! Impossible to please.

    I went to a boutique hotel for dinner one night in Fez in a venue that looked similar to this, riyadh and all (but not as luxurious)…wow this is ultimate opulence, love how exotic and over the top everything is…yup, I could see myself living there

Hey, Elly, on Sunday I met my friend who has been working in Malaysia and Vietnam for the last 6 months and now she came home for Christmas (you know the song “coming home for Christmas”), she told me a lot of good things about Singapore and I thought about you 😉 I think I have a thing for chairs because again, I am attracted to that amazing wooden, it reminds me of the Alahambra’s walls.
