Morocco's 1001 night fairy tale...
It was seven years ago that this couple visited Morocco for the first time. It was love at first sight, especially with the exotic Marrakech, the former imperial city of Morocco, which is known as the Red City for its predominantly red-colored buildings. The country is located in the north of Africa, directly bordering the Atlantic Ocean and Sahara Dessert while the Mediterranean Sea separates it with the country of Spain.
From their trips, they found out that there are two different classification of the Moroccan architecture: a simple architecture marked with beautiful but non elaborate design and a heavily ornamented architecture in the style of Baroque architecture. For comfort as well as aesthetic reasons, a clean cut shape with strong Moroccan influences was selected by the couple. This is evident in the color pallets of the walls and furniture. Burst of maroon and terracotta warmly accentuate the rooms, complementing the antique wooden furniture. In keeping with the clean look, there are no elaborate or intricate carvings in this house. Inspired by the French Renaissance movement in Morocco, several elegant chandeliers are hung in
Each rooms has its own function and is only separated by a glass window ornamented with a trellis depicting flower petals and leaves. The Moroccan style here is shown through the wooden door pattern, the water fountain in the backyard, ceiling treatment made of organza material, as well as the walls which are dominated with natural colors. Clear room demarcation ensures that the privacy of each house member is guarded.
