Take Me to Marakkesh

I am currently obsessing over all things Moroccan. Wait, let me correct myself- I’ve been obsessed with all things Moroccan for a LONG time now. Specifically anything located in or having to do with the magical Marrakesh.  I am absolutely dying to travel there and these two uber-luxurious hotels would be where I’d ideally lay my head (but I have a feeling they might be a *smidge* out of my price range) C’est la vie- I’d at least go for a cup pf mint tea!

Palais Rhoul is a seriously stylish mix of modern decor and traditional Moroccan style. I am quite enamored.

Oh hello zig zag floors and striped walls with vintage paintings. I want to hug you.

La Mamounia is the most famous hotel in Marrakesh, recently renovated and the host of one hell of a celebrity packed grand re-opening party. It looks incredibly opulent and full of incredible detail.

Can you imagine this? A nice sunset picnic in the desert? Because I sure can!

A fabulous detail of the pool- the bottom patterned like a Beni Ouarain carpet!  it’s one of my goals in life to own one of these bad boys.  I love how they go with any style decor and in any room. A must have.

I also LOVED this Marrakesh themed spread in Bazaar last month (thanks Absinthrill for scanning- I had no patience this morning).  I adore the colors, layers and patterns shown here and the “looseness” of the styles- I plan to adapt this for spring!
