Elle Does Morocco

I am seriously considering shaking up my magazine subscriptions.  The last few Elle Decors and Architectural Digests have really made me sad.  Sad because they bored me.  Sad.  The current issue of Elle Decor arrived recently and, thanks to one feature, I have decided to put off canceling my subscription.  Look at this color explosion!  It's a house in Morocco...of course.  

I love the orange table in the pink room.  Love love love.

Red cabinet and orange it some more.

I really like that the architectural details are painted white here.  I would expect dark wood or gold in morocco..but the use of white is so modern feeling...and not in the way where you feel like they were just trying to accessorize the room in Moroccan style.  That drives me nuts.  It's probably all I would be capable of doing/affording to do...but still drives me nuts.  

And just when you are holding your breath feeling like the color might be too much......white....with punches of color.  Brilliant punches of color.  Breathe.

Would you just look at those doors!  

I love the flower pots. 

I was feeling a little overwhelmed with all the pink...I like pink but I am far from loving it.  so I was psyched to see the greens and blues in the above and following pictures.  

I would like to paint my life the color of the shelves/floor.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  I would never go inside if I owned this space.  

And finally..finish it off with a beautiful mirror.

My heart is pounding.  I want to see the place in person.  I wonder what it would feel like to be in that pink room.  The colors excite me but that is a lot of color.  I get a little overwhelmed looking at it.  I wonder what it would be like to live in it.  I like the balance with the predominately white which punches of the same-ish pink.  Wow.  


  1. i have a stack of old mags i've been saving to give you...mostly house beautiful i think. just got to remember to drop them off. ;)

  2. I love the green/blue rooms...especially the one with the tree in it!


  3. i really like the crazy inlays in the third pic. i want stuff like that all over my house, but in a classy way.
