Design Amour + Morocco Bound!
You'll have to visit My Marrakesh for the full scoop but I can't resist giving you a sneak peek. This is a photo of the newly hand painted ceiling in Maryam's boutique hotel Peacock Pavilions in Marrakesh, opening in November. Is this not stunning? Who wouldn't love to sleep beneath a ceiling that looks like a giant suzani blanket? Oh how enchanting... The idea of white walls and wallpaper on the ceiling is wonderful but a hand painted ceiling like this one, I am well, lost for words.
This work is by Design Amour, you can visit their website to learn about their techniques and to view more examples of the magic that they create. Image a large chandelier in this space? Black iron with crystals perhaps? I can't wait to see what Maryam does with this room, she needs to add interior designer to her already long list of talents.
I heard that the wonderful Design Amour ladies also stenciled concrete floors like this one for Maryam. But we won't know until she shows us so I'm watching My Marrakesh like a hawk. :>)
And I have a little secret... Okay not so much now because I'm about to tell you. Maryam and her family invited Thorsten and I to Marrakesh in November, just six months from now. Can I wait? NO! I think about it constantly. I want to take you all with me, I think we should organize a huge decor8 sleepover, do you think Maryam will mind? I hope not. When I'm in Marrakesh I vow to post the full scoop here on decor8. I have to share the sights with you, I'm certain you'll love it and find so much inspiration from all the pattern and color there.
