Years ago, I landed upon one of the most beautiful blogs, My Marrakesh, and developed an online friendship with author Maryam Montague. She introduced me to Moroccan wedding blankets (I bought a gorgeous one from her years ago) and to the beauty of the Moroccan riad. In fact, it is her very own Peacock Pavilions that I want to introduce you to today. An amazing boutique hotel and home built by Maryam and her husband, Peacock Pavilions has the perfect blend of traditional Moroccan style and modern touches that make it a true gem. I hope you enjoy this house tour and from it takeaway ideas for incorporating Moroccan design in your own spaces.
In the salon, pierced lanterns hang above and traditional poufs sit next to glossy Ikea chairs for a modern twist.
The arched entryways and tiled fireplace are standouts among the beautiful features in this living space.
The Golden Gazelles bedroom is at the top of my list for places to stay. The gold and black mural is stunning, celebrating the beauty of wildlife. Global touches like the black and white kilim and hanging lanterns complete this bedroom.
Here are the wedding blankets I mentioned. They have bits of sparkle and cozy up this guest room. The ceiling mural in peacock blue is also another stunner and represents the kinds of special touches you’ll find throughout this one-of-a-kind abode.
Every room at Peacock Pavilions is exceptional, just like this bathroom featuring tiles from the Moroccan company Popham Design. You can continue this house tour in the Peacock Pavilions gallery. Also, be sure to explore HGTV’s new guide to Global Design.
But first, after seeing these spaces, are you interested in adding some Moroccan, global flair to your designs?
