Moroccan Inspiration

At the beginning of December last year I went with some friends for a long sunny weekend to Marrakech. We went for a mini adventure up to a waterfall in the foothills of the atlas mountains. We passed lots of colourful riverside fine dining establishments and a terracotta Berber house. The house had windows that seemed to be designed and built to frame the soul-soothing views of the the northern African hills.

Here are some of the sights, shapes, colours and textures that got me going along the way…

We also visited the YSL Jardin Majorelle for a dose of majorelle blue mixed with sunshine yellow, evergreen and terracotta terracotta. One of my favourite moments from the whole trip was walking into the jewellery room at the Berber museum. The Berbers put the majority of us modern day jewellers to shame and 20 minutes in that room was enough to inspire a whole new collection.

The rest of our time was spent wandering and soaking up the atmosphere of Marrakech old town. The sounds, the smells, the people and the hustle bustle.
