I have always been fascinated with Morocco. I imagine stretching out on a jewel-toned rug under the warm desert sun after a long day shopping in the souks (and probably scoring some amazing silver rings). Also, they have elephants there. Done and done.
I love artists that incorporate the North African sparkle into their interiors and designs, and I try to incorporate that into my own aesthetic. The bright colors, traditional rugs and wedding blankets and the way that Moroccan design incorporates bold geometric shpaes and decorative adorments are so beautiful to me. Morocco is definitely high on my list of dream destinations and I can’t wait to visit and bring back some goodies for myself…but until then, maybe I’ll DIY this pouf!
Sidenote — today, at I was shopping around at Anthropologie and found these beautiful placements and matching table runner. They kind of remind me of the Moroccan wedding blanket with the cream color scheme and silver metallic woven in. I love ’em!
