A glimpse of paradise

Posted on Tue, 11 May 2010 by KiM

We’ve had terribly cold weather here in Ottawa for the last few days so I think it’s time to take a little trip. I’m thinking about a riad in the Medina of Marrakech. Problem is if I ever visited this home I’d without a doubt NEVER leave. Every detail is simply stunning. This is what paradise looks like in my dreams.

Such a beautiful place. Please take me there.

Beautiful pictures! I’m surprised to see all black and white in Marrakech. It’s all about colors there and crazy tile combinations. It must have taken a very disciplined person to do only b/w.
I know I couldn’t do it!
Thanks for the always thought-provoking posts.

Andrea says:

Really beautiful!
I love the style.

This is so beautiful. I wish I had stayed in a riad when I visited Marrakech a couple years ago.

i love the idea of building a home around a central courtyard. bonus points for the pool!

This is too good. My dream, too.

My husband and I went to Marrakech for our honeymoon in 2005. We stayed at Riad Tiwaline (since closed) in the medina. AMAZING! Great, quiet service, welcoming people, new exciting culture (for us anyway). No other trip since has compared. I love living in Brooklyn, but my dream is to live in a riad with the gorgeous courtyard, tadalakt walls, tiny door in the wall, breakfast on the roof every morning. Go! Go! Go!

This is a classic example of why I really, really love Moroccan influence. Sigh. Must see more…
