Rockin’ it Moroccan


All politics aside… the Middle East knows how it’s done. An intriguing culinary past that brings us dishes that are savory and complex, an artistic history that brings beautiful patterns and a landscape that indulges us in deep, intense shades of magenta, indigo and burnt orange… my West African influenced childhood left me completely intrigued with all these things and I have spent the majority of my apartment-occupying adulthood collecting various artifacts to bring those elements into my home.

Upon recent shopping, I found I am no longer the only one digging all these details. There has been an explosion of Moroccan-influenced throw pillows, coffee tables, lamps, tiles and wall colors. My sister incorporated a Moroccan-style lattice Dhurrie rug in her apartment to temper the Pottery Barn prep she has going on in spades. It’s the perfect main theme or subtle addition for living spaces with lots of life, color and texture. Way to go, Morocco! We have yet to make it there, but we’re loving the look.
