Morocco Design Inspiration

Morocco is full of design inspiration. I was lucky enough to visit some stunning locations that have inspired my design career over the years.

Below is a little preview of some of the amazing locations I visited.

 

The Royal Mansour Hotel and Spa was design heaven. It was built under commission for King Mohammed VI, the Mansour in Marrakech is the gold standard of luxury with just 53 private riads and of course that enchanting spa. The arch doors are just as photogenic as the stunning wrought iron atrium in the interior. Royal Mansour Hotel and Spa Royal Mansour Royal Mansour interior Royal Mansour Resort Royal Mansour design

 

Kasbah Tamadot, located in the Atlas Mountains outside of Marrakech, owned by Richard Branson was pure luxury.
