makin’ it – this room, that tile

makin' it - this room, that turquoise Moroccan tile

The color of deep water. I love the color, the texture, and the pattern of this tile in the entryway at the home of Fran├žois Gilles in Morocco.

destinations: peacock pavilions

To be honest I’m not entirely sure where I first found Peacock Pavilions, but I do know that it was an image of this mural that first stopped me in my tracks. I love it… which doesn’t even do justice to how I feel about it. So, wanting to see more of my new love, I rooted around and found that it was located in a boutique hotel in Marrakesh named Peacock Pavilions.

Sitting in an olive grove, the gorgeous, and it should be noted, eco-friendly, hotel has two pavilions with a total of five bedrooms. There are rose gardens, a pool, an outdoor cinema, and an embroidered dining tent. Intimate and exotic, it seems like an extraordinary oasis for you, or two… or you can rent the entire hotel for a stylish and exotic destination wedding or event.

It was the mural that brought me to Peacock Pavilions, and once there I was mesmerized by the extraordinary design and style throughout. An eclectic mix of Moroccan and modern – hand-painted staircases, patterned ceilings, Moroccan wedding blankets, detailed lace plasterwork, the exotic lanterns… and the textiles, oh, the textiles.

The hotel was opened by Maryam Montague, an enthusiast of Moroccan culture and design, personal shopper, interior design consultant, and writer, and her husband Chris, an architect with a passion for eco-friendly design. The couple packed up and moved from Chicago to settle in Marrakesh to create this exquisite retreat. Thank you for creating such a beautiful place.
