monday moodboard - a whiter shade of pale

I really enjoy my pinterest page and do in fact treat each board as a moodboard.
When I choose a pin I often see it in relation to others on the board rather than for its own intrinsic worth.
I thought I would start a regular
 monday moodboard post to share with you some of the images I have collected - it seems a pity to keep them to myself!
all images and credits can be found HERE

all together here

have a good week

Inspiration from Taroudant

A little visual inspiration to start off the week.

Perusing the shelves of the bookshop in Casablanca airport last week, I decided to buy the latest issue of  Maisons du Maroc (#111 if you want to try and get a copy) to ease my boredom. Paging through the magazine I discovered these images which are going straight to my inspiration and ideas file!
  I thought I would share just a few of them. 

I love the natural tones, and use of traditional materials and design elements.

Searching for a Boucherouite

Well its official . . .
August has come to an end, September is upon us 
and so the blogging begins!
It has been a wonderfu sun and family filled few weeks,
 but I must confess that I have managed a few forays into the medina in search of the perfetly {imperfect} Boucherouite carpet for a friend.

This has involved sifting through the piles and stacks of carpets on display

A hard job as they say, but somebody has to do it!

And it seemed a shame that out of all these beautiful and painterly creations, we could only choose one.
So I thought I would show them around and see if anyone else would like to buy a boucherouite or two.
If you fancy a little colour from morocco in your home,
handcrafted from lifes scraps and cast offs.
Have a look here and see what you think!

It does seem a pity to leave them piled up in the medina
when one of them could be casting a colourful hue across your floor.
For more information , sizes, pricing contact me directly on email or message me.

And if none of these take your fancy, I am sure we can find one that does!
