Moroccan Spice: Pattern, Texture + Layers

March 11, 2013

I haven’t quite caught up after lying low with the family last week but we all got a good dose of sunshine on Saturday, which certainly helped boost our spirits. My friend Janis recently returned from an enviable trip to Morocco and her photos made me crave more colour and texture for my own home. I love the look of these Eastern-inspired interiors. Rich layers of pattern, mixed metals and bold colours that all come together to create an effortlessly cohesive space…

Wasn’t it nice to have an extra hour of daylight yesterday? Although the weekend did seem to speed by mighty fast. I actually can’t believe we’re this far into March already and Spring Break is just a week away. I’d better get organized with some activity planning or else it could be an interesting 2 weeks with the kiddos at home! No tropical holidays for us this year (sigh), how about you? Enjoy your Monday :)

I can’t believe its middle of march either. I love that you posted this, since I’m looking for a little moroccan inspiration in our bedroom for the new house :D

Thanks Rosa! They definitely make me want to get a bit more adventurous in my own home. Hope your week is having a good start…time to hibernate again with all of this rain, meh.

Lily, thanks for sharing a couple of my pics. Peacock Pavilions was such a beautiful place. I loved how Maryam mixed patterns, textures and colours and it all worked so well. Seeing that pretty Berber rug in the Country Living image, makes me wish I brought one home!

Ugh, I loved all of your photos and am entirely envious of your trip! I was wondering if you’d managed to pack a kilim or two home…I’d imagine there would be some odd looks on your flight :)
