Rock the Casbah: Marvelous Morrocan Interiors


Phew! It's been a rough week! I've been pulling 14 hour days and there's no end in sight.  Even my posts have been a bit all over the map today—everything from platypus pillows to Gwyneth's GOOP—and I think it's the result of all the frenzied, frazzled activity. From the sounds of it, everyone else is balls to the wall lately too! So let's take a breather with these gorgeous Moroccan inspired interiors. Sit back, nibble some sugared dates, and enjoy!


Who needs furniture when you have a gazillion pillows at your disposal?
I can even forgive this woman her pink ankle socks. And can't you just taste
the sweet, rich Turkish coffee that they'd serve you when you sat down in
this shadowed warren of screens and benches?


Leather. Mustard yellow. Two of my favourite things melded into a stunning floor cushion?
Heaven on earth! And I love the basket as coffee table concept here!


The sunny, citrusy palette here is so pleasing. Poufs are a staple in this approach to decorating,
and I adore the contrasting yellow stitching on this one. I can't tell if that backdrop is textile or wood…whatever it is, I like it!

As much as I love all the color of Middle Eastern style, I can't get enough
of this cool, serene take on the look. The greys and blues have an almost
Scandinavian iciness to them, but the layered textures say 'pass the hookah'.
(Don't smoke kids.)

A great contrast here between the sumputous bed linens and prolific pillows, and the
single spare crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Love the lone lily next to the bed!


Morrocan style isn't just about the pillows (though I do love the pillows!). It's about the handpainted tiles, the gorgeous glasswares and ceramics, the rich bounty of vibrant color and lush, vivid details.


What a charming vignette! The broad, rustic plank table, the antique tribal headpieces, the glowing tumble of roses, the gilded mirror in the background. What exquisite parties must be held here!

And finally, doesn't this collection of silver teapots make you want to travel to faraway lands?
Or at least do some shopping to make it look like you've travelled to faraway lands? Well then
you're in luck…stay tuned for a 'Get the Look' shopping guide coming tomorrow, as well as
another installment in our Blogger Book Love series!


And in the meantime, slow down and smile—it's almost the weekend!

    one day I’d love to have a room with thick colourful rugs, lots of gorgeous pillows like the ones on the photo & maybe underfloor heating (awfully cold here for most of the year!). It would be “my” room where i can relax, read, browse the internet & blog!

    Thanks for the gorgeous pictures Anne! I have to say though that my favourite is the one with just the greys, blues and whites – that picture is simply stunning. I’m also made about soda syphons and silver – so the last picture is a real winner too for me!
    Hope you get to have a bit of rest and relaxation this weekend after your busy week. Enjoy!

    I’m so glad you enjoyed WW Anne – I’m sure it helps that you have Aussie connections :). I totally get your taste and so because I’m too lazy to hunt down beautiful things myself, I can come here to get my fix!

    miss, you cannot possibly be a kept woman if you are pulling 14 hour days… that implies that you are in fact doing something productive with your time! 🙂
    thanks for the comment – you cracked me up. hope the gym was a success, and that you had less awkward/creepy interactions than i usually do!
