A hidden Gem-A House in Morocco


Hello Ladies!
It's Monday, and I am selecting one of the stylist houses from Morocco. It's fulled with surprises and funkiness, yet still holds its traditional looks. Throughout this house, you can see the Moroccan traditional pattern (Zellige) repeat itself in every room. Wonderful idea!

Enjoy the visual tour of Liza Bruce & Nicholas Vega's Moroccan Home.

Fashion designer Liza Bruce and her husband, artist Nicholas Alvis Vega, lead the life of high-style nomads. The jet-setting couple have amassed a global collection of homes—from a flat in London's Notting Hill, to a palazzo apartment in Jaipur, to a group of beach bungalows in Puglia, Italy—that they have furnished with a worldly sensibility and a near-cinematic eye for design. "We refer to our houses as film sets without the film," Bruce says. "We're driven to create the perfect hideaway."


The jewel in their crown—the home that Vega calls their "pleasure palace"—is a three-story house in Morocco complete with gardens, terraces, a swimming pool, and a hammam steam bath. Bruce, who made her name in the 1980s with an innovative line of Lycra swimwear, now sells her fashions in her London boutique. In 2003, she began traveling to Marrakech to create a collection of embroidered caftans. After several trips, she and her husband—an inseparable pair who met as teenagers in 1968— decided to establish a permanent base in Morocco.

The Zillige patters are on the windows & doors...very subtle, yet brings tradition in this hippy house...



Lovely vivid colours...Just what we need to lighten up our day!

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead,
Gros Bisous de Marrakech,
