Spring yellow! I was viewing my old photos of Morocco. I have a lot of them as you know and thought maybe it would be nice to share again a few of them with you. I selected some photos all made in Marrakech with a yellow accent.
The sunsets are beautiful in Morocco as you can see. In the old medina you will find clothes to dry in the sun in all colours. Melons and other fresh fruit everywhere. At the old medina you will find cereals, rugs, Moroccon shoes, saffron and much much more.
And the moped…like bikes in Amsterdam.

Okay it’s still winter here in Holland and complaining doesn’t give positive energy, but….
…I want the spring, sun, flowers, going outside etc. When I see this beautiful images in Ibiza made by Heidi Lerkenfeldt I almost can feel the warmth of the sun. I love the fresh whites and the Moorish/ Moroccan details. It makes want to feel the spring sun even more. Do you see the beautiful Beni Ouarain rug again?… perfectly styled.
I have changed my living room. Finally I have painted my floor white. Im so happy with the result. Now it’s my living room. I always had the feeling that it was the floor of the previous occupant.
My Moroccan lounge corner I have changed also. It was time because it was for 4 years the same and thats a long time for me. I have made my working space also in the living room because the light is here so perfect. We have the luck that we have a big living room.
This time I have chosen for black & white. I have made one little wall black I like the effect. I think it’s chic but also robust. What do you think of my new corner?

At the end of last year I have refreshed my own house. The living room and my Moroccan touch lounge. To get some inspiration I have searched for modern styled riads. What do you think of this interior of Riad Dar K in Marrakech?
I love the simplicity. The mixed colours white, grey, black and natural gives a fresh but also a warm atmosphere. And of course the pom pom blanket is stunning. Its almost the same as we have in our shop.
My living room is almost finished. I really love the result. I will show you soon some images of my own home styled Moroccan lounge.

It’s almost the end of the year again. Time flies so fast. So enjoy every day of your life. See beauty in little things. I notice that sometimes in the issues of the day I don’t see the little things anymore. The little things that can make life so beautiful. The feeling that you are really living.
Sometimes I take my daughter of 3 and half years as an example. She still sees the little details. Birds flying in the sky, the moon, stars in the sky. I love it how she sees the world.
I wanna thank you al for reading my blogpost. I hope I have inspired you a little bit. I wish you all beautiful days. And remember nothing is a must.

This Moroccan-style home belongs to fashion photographer Phillip Dixon and art photographer Veronique Vial. If you see this house and interior it looks like you are in a Moroccan desert. But it isn’t. This house is located in a busy street of Venice Beach California. Philip Dixon was inspired by all his travels he made. It’s a whole different interpretation of Moroccan style mixed with western style. Simplicity characterizes this house.

I have never been at this charming hotel Villa Maroc in Essaouira. But I think it’s a really charming little hotel. The interior in mixed styles French and Moroccan, simple but elegant. They have also a ”oriental spa”, that sounds really good to me…
Essaouira is a really lovely cute place and really worth visiting when you are in Morocco. You can have a lovely walk along the beach. Also it’s really nice shopping there and you can eat delicious food. For sports enthusiasts Essaouira is one of the places to the surf. For now see how simple a Moroccan style lounge can be.
