Entries in Moroccan (24)


Roman and Williams

Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch of Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors (based in New York City) are my new favourite design duo. I absolutely love every photo in their portfolio. TO DIE FOR. They rock all sorts of styles - there's a bit of mid-century, vintage industrial, Moroccan, contemporary country, modern...it's all freaking gorgeous and looks so effortless, and timeless. I'm taking many notes and saving many photos.


Inspiration request

We received an email from someone looking for a bit 'o inspiration: "HELP! I need inspiration. I am redoing a guest room and I want it to have that Indian/Moroccan feel to it with out feeling 'themey'." Not a problem. I went through my stash and found some not overly Indian/Moroccan bedrooms that I think would make beautiful guest rooms. But beware - make it too beautiful and your guests will never leave!

This is the last day of my 4 day weekend and I've got a ton of stuff to get done around the house. (I almost said that it's finally a nice day out, but then turned around to find dark clouds and sprinkling rain. UGH!!!) So I'm taking a blog break today. I leave you with the following photo from Marie Claire Maison, because I have recently become totally smitten with Moroccan/Indian decor.


Dorm design dilemma

Kim wrote us hoping we could help her with a design dilemma: "I am a uni student living on campus. My uni room is quite large and easily fits a king sized bed, a bar fridge, a bedside table and two tables. I am looking for an ethnic and minimal look (if that even exists). The walls are the real ugly dorm room walls. I have tried covering two of them up with pictures but am left with one really large blank wall. Any more pictures will definitively defeat the minimal look I'm going for. Any suggestions?? The room currently has a burgundy Thai bedspread with silk cushions, Turkish carpet and a Moroccan inspired lantern. Any help is appreciated!!"

Kim - your room sounds gorgeous so far! I have a couple of suggestions for you - an ornate wood mirror, carved wooden panels, a fab piece of fabric simply tacked up, or a big (but flat) tropical plant. Below are some photos of ethnic bedrooms and a couple living rooms for inspiration. We'd love to see photos of the room once completed!
