You know whats funny? I was cleaning out my drafts folder and found this rough draft of a post I was going to do back in 2012, but never finished! I still think it is very much postworthy and relevant, so I will share it with you over 2 years later!
I have this immense fascination with Morocco, so of course when I saw this delightful residence in the May issue of Lonny, I was ecstatic. Welcome to the Moroccan abode of author and activist, Maryam Montague. (You may be familiar with her book Marrakesh by Design.) Keep scrolling for some major eye candy!
This home is the ultimate balance of old and new. It is Moroccan-modern perfection. You know what helps? Having an architect husband. Together Maryam and her husband Chris were able to create their dream family home in the perfect central location for work and play.
I’m loving the mix of modern and vintage Moroccan design elements. Such a vivid collection from a well traveled family and a sweet reflection of the city she has grown to love.
Totally crushing all of the vintage light fixtures!!
And this headboard is genius!
Can you even imagine how fabulous the parties would be on this patio??
Hey, it may be from 2012 but you could have told me it was in print yesterday and I would have believed it. The moral of this story: Great design is timeless, remember that friends. And also do not wait until tomorrow (or 2 years from tomorrow) to do what could be done today!
