Moroccan Autumn Inspirations


Hello there everyone!
Last time I've posted my blog, it was just August and it was hot/humid unbearable in Marrakech. We were resting under our terrace, drinking ice cold moroccan mint tea...
Now, things has changed, and it's turning into Autumn again. Even in Marrakech, there is a four season, and yes, we do need coats in the winter in the night time (it drops to 5-8 degrees!).
The day time is still hot here in Marrakech, but I can feel the season changing in the night time...ah, it's that time of year again.
Autumn is a great time to explore things different and new.
I'm working on our new Autumn/Winter collection with different Tunics/Dresses for the cold season.
I'm very busy ordering and making the collection, but for the time being, I'd like to share a Moroccan Autumn Inspiration...

Love from Marrakech,

Moroccan Handira- a beautiful woven art

Hello everyone! Are you enjoying the summer still? I'd love to share with you another Moroccan art called the 'handira'. It's a beautiful piece of textile woven from sheep wool and hundreds of sequins. It's meant to be a traditional Moroccan wedding blanket.
In the Berber villiages of Morocco (Berber is the original group which lived in Morocco for centuries and have their own culture, writing and language very different from the arabic Moroccans!), the femail members of the bride spend months hand sewing this beautiful blanket. The Berber bride will wear the handira as a cape for the journey into their new home and will use it for the first night to spend with her new husband.


As a designer, I find this sequin wedding blanket very trendy for any bedroom, and will add that extra luxury and exotic feeling to a peaceful and calming atmosphere.
It useful not just for a bed cover, but could be used anywhere in your room especially over your sofa.

It also makes it a special feeling that everything is handmade, and was meant to give good luck, prosperity to the new family the bride was meant to spend her life with.
I have a handira as well in our bedroom, and I'm loving it every day! It just brings that special feeling into the home decor!

If you are interested in buying Handira's let me know! I sell some in our stock and would love to share this lovely Moroccan art with you☆

with love from Marrakech,

Peacock Pavilions-wonderful bohemian dream

It's been almost 3 weeks since I've writen my blog. And this always happens when I'm off to Marrakech. I always love to indulge myself in the Moroccan culture 100% and forget about all my troubles, work etc...just forget about the everyday normal things and concentrate on the extraordinary.

It's good, everyone needs to switch off from time to time and renew their energies...hope you have a change to re-energise yourself soon :)
Talking about extraordinary and re-newing yourself, what's better than doing this in Morocco. My exotic retreat and inspiration!

Here is another one of my favorite hotel boutique...check this one. It's called the Peacock Pavilion and is located just outskirts of Marrakech. Hope you enjoy the photos, and see you soon in Marrakech x

R&B Collective, a pop-up Moroccan Bazaar in LA...

This shop is reminds me of the Souk in Syria or Marrakech...
A beautifully bohemian place to get interior ideas...
Really cozy corner..Love the Moroccan Pouffe there..
Exotic trays & Tea pots...why not buy one and invite your friends for an exotic tea time?


There's something about LA that I love, and can connect to...Not because I grew up there and feel close to the Californians, but because of their lovely choice of Bohemian lifestyle. LA is such a beautiful boho city to me, and will always be close to me...
Here's a great pop-up shop which opened just a year ago in Brentwood, LA called "R+G Collective".
Their collection is amazing! From the tea tables of Syria to the beautiful handcrafted leather pouffes from Morocco, Marrakech... If you live in LA, this shop is a treat for all exotic travellers, except that you don't have to travel at all! Just endulge yourself in the mystic cultures...

Abit about the background of this shop.   Hollywood art director, Wendy Riva & Andrea Gibbin collaborated on the shop with interior designers Eric Hughes & Nathan Turner. The shop also features clothing by Minnie Mortimer & Soledad Twombly...
I hope my design Tunics & Caftans "Maison Marrakech" might be selected in their shop one day....☆
Their address:
R + G Collective, 11981 San Vicente Blvd., California, + 1(USA) 310-729-7775

Momo - my favorite hung out in London...

Happy Wednesday Everyone! I always love to chill out in the middle of the week. I usually give myself that special treatment ☆Normally, I go to the gym on weekdays, except for Wednesday, as it's my chill out day...time to chill out and spend some time in an exotic space...
When I'm in London, my favorite chill out place is Momo. For those living in London, it's a must to try.



I usually start by relaxing in their terrace outside with a sheesha (water pipe) in my  hand, bubbling away...it's really relaxing, and I like the taste, very fruity. Whilst I am enjoying my bubbles, I order some of their new tea time sets. And spend another more couple of hours with my friends. Sometimes, I may come on my own to feel the inspiration..
The Moroccan-inspired afternoon tea offers a mix of classic English scones and cheesecakes alongside authentic Maghrebine pastries or a Moroccan chicken wrap savoury option. Teas range from traditional English to exotic – the Hamman, a Turkish variety of green tea, is also superb. Afternoon tea at Momo will be served from 2.30pm-5.30pm every day; prices start at £9.50 for tea and scones, while the full selection, including cakes, savoury snacks and teas, is £22 per person. Call 020 7434 4040 to book.
