i could live here: retro bohemian in morocco.



salamu alaikum! si, from the french by design blog here for a new globe trotter i could live here house tour.  today, we’re heading to beautiful morocco to visit the house of an english gal with exquisite taste.

emma wilson first came to morocco to celebrate her birthday, fell in love with the place and decided to change her life completely. she moved from london, bought an abandoned riad near the sunny city of essaouira  and opened a riad rental website, called “castles in the sand”. then, two years ago, emma decided to build her dream house in the small village of sidi kaouki and filled her new home with vintage finds brought back from london or handpicked atlas rugs that she now sells through her webshop, beldirugs.  emma’s house is a happy place, full of colors, retro vibe and infinite style.

    Everything about this home is spectacular. The colours, the mix between old and new is so lovely. I’m looking to go to Morocco next year, I just checked out her riad and it looks amazing, definitely considering staying here. Thanks for the share.
