Riad Mena & Beyond

Hump day? What hump day? No we're all on a virtual getaway to Marrakech, to Riad Mena & Beyond. Just when I though my love affair with all things Moroccan might be waning I'm smitten by this traditional riad with it's minimalist interiors and iconic 20th century furniture pieces thrown into the mix.  The "beyond" bit? Forty-five minutes outside of Marrakech, at the foot of the Atlas Mountains is the Riad Mena & Beyond outpost. A fully-functioning permaculture farm where you can spend the day in wonderful nature, enjoy a seasonal picnic, or even spend some nights in the rustically charming houses. I'll be back at the main house waiting by the pool.

Runaway to Morocco

Come take my hand. We'll close our eyes and click our heels and be magically transported to 5 Columns, a beautifully restored 18th Century house in the heart of the Essaouira Medina, Morocco. If only it was that easy to escape the slow dragging drudgery of Fridays at work.

Sunday inspiration

I was poking around Marie Claire Maison yesterday and came across a few homes that really captured my attention so I thought I would share a couple of them. This Marrakech home has gorgeous features that are typical of Moroccan architecture but the owners have spiced things up with some mid-century modern furnishings. A quirky combination, and I love it.
