You're all invited...

to visit Morocco with me. A quick little weekend trip is all. No one will even notice you're gone.

  1. Dear Trendy Decorators,

    Love Morocco - absolutely love it. Love the people, the food, the friendliness of strangers who will spend hours with you drinking tea.

    Do not love Moroccan Bathrooms* (I'm looking at you, Apartment Therapy), so-called Moroccan interiors that are really in a McMansion, and the calling of anything slightly exotic looking Moroccan.

    *The horror.

  2. Summer,

    After reconsidering my *ahem*, let's say, slightly snarky comment, I'd like to say that your post is lovely. I in no way want to discourage you from being creative, positive, and getting down with your bad self online.

    I just had a rant attack. It happens if I haven't had enough coffee, and if my cat keeps trying to wake me up at 5:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning.

    Apologies,

    Sarsha

  3. Dude, you've earned the right to comment on Morocco. No worries! (sniff sniff)
    ;)

  4. Hey, doesn't putting a tagine somewhere in the photo make it a Moroccan interior???

  5. And belly dancing.

    And camels.

    And complaining (as one odd poster on AT did fairly recently) that the strong Moroccan spices are making your house smell too much like food... this is a bad thing because?

    Cool stuff that is very authentically Moroccan:

    These men's leather slippers (although yellow is better):

    This set of six (tea, not shot) glasses:

    Or this gorgeous caftan which is, sadly, made for a man:

    That concludes my favorite part of being in Morocco - the shopping!

Do you have something to say? I'd love to hear it...
