Marrakech: and a tale of my still curious home - Part 1: my bedroom

 I assemble small collections, and I create little vignettes.   I pin things to the wall, and I hang things on hooks.  I have piles of tribal textiles stacked up on chairs and on floors; I leave these piles everywhere.  


My husband swears that in his next life, he will marry a minimalist.  I pat him on the arm and say, Of course you will.    

Today, some items in my bedroom at Peacock Pavilions in Marrakesh.


A little pouch with Berber imagery to store receipts, books by Sibella Court (inspiring layouts), a clay hand holds Moroccan matches to light my candle in the evening.


A jumble of cushions on the daybed.

My jewelry, including a ring from Bouvier, bracelets from Tory Burch and Raven & Lilly, & antique tribal pieces on etched hands. (I sell the hand etched hands for $140 each  - useful, every day luxury is so nice.)  More favorite books - I am inspired by The Divine Home and love the photography in Interiors.

A collection of antique spice boxes from Yemen.

Kenyan bone beads and a necklace from Raven and Lily hanging from hooks of my own design. (The hooks are hand-made and I sell them for $55 each). A pom pom necklace from Tory Burch.  An image of a Berber woman found in the Marrakesh Thursday souk.

A model hand with an old shell bead. Recent reading (odd & somewhat interesting).

A vintage peacock on an Egyptian inlaid box.

An old toy car found in the Marrakech souks, a terracotta head from Mali, a vintage Montague cigar box, an antique Tibetan tray.

What special little things are in your bedroom?
