Marrakesh by Design
In a world filled with beige interiors, Morocco is the perfect antidote: a refuge for addicts of saturated colour, a haven for devotees of intricate pattern, a destination for admirers of striking architecture. For anyone who wants to add Morocco's spicy design mix into their own home, Maryam Montague, the premier blogger on the subject, explains how to do so with the building blocks of Moroccan design - from the colours, patterns, and textiles to the architectural details and so much more. Maryam shows how Moroccan design comes to life in real villas and riads and, of course, in her own magnificent home. With takeaway information presented in "Bringing It Home" sidebars and in how-to projects, the book is filled with actionable ideas for eager DIYers. It includes everything a reader needs to know about the Moroccan-designed products to buy.
