let’s say you’re like me and you’ve got a hankering to get away to your dream destination, but we’re just not advised to travel right now? well, we had the idea for a post wherein we bring your holiday home — as in right inside your house. this week we’re headed to one of my very own must-visit-soon spots: morocco. i’ve been daydreaming of a trip to el fenn in Marrakech for some time now and since i haven’t got this particular trip on the horizon, i thought i’d fantasize about what one might find there, wear there, immerse myself in whilst there. here goes holiday at home in morocco!

  1. Morocco is at the top of my list for places I want to visit. Thank you for transporting me there today! As always, your post is exquisite.

  2. Morocco is AMAZING! My husband and I visited Marrakesh in November 2017 and it was magical. We stayed a beautiful road in the city for a few nights and then glamped in the Sahara Desert for a few nights….camel rides, sand surfing, dancing by fire light wont the locals….LOVED IT! Hope that you’re able to go soon! This COVID had definitely put a damper on my travel life!

  3. Morocco is amazing. And I’m always a bit taken aback when folks who have been there speak only about the things we see in colorful pictures.

    It is full of color and life.

    It’s also a very punishing environment for women. Life as a woman is very hard there. So while I, as a woman traveling (with my daughter), never felt completely at ease to move about freely, my observations of Moroccan women living their daily lives only served to intensify my own discomfort.

    I’m amazed at how easy it is for westerners to glam up a country that treats its women so miserably.

    • I understand what your saying, but since this is a design blog and there’s so much design inspiration coming out of Morocco, that’s the focus here. We could say that, sadly, about so very many places, including the U.S. but I don’t like to get too political on the blog. I hear you, though.

  4. Last year I was able to finally get my butt to Morocco. After traveling through the country with @magicbusmorocco (highly recommend!!!!) & @bohemiadesign (sustainable and culturally artisans crafts) my boyfriend and I treated ourselves to a stay at El Fenn for 3 nights before Riad hopping around Marrakesh. El Fenn is incredible.
