Marrakesh: and a tale of Melanie Royals and the Peacock Painters, Part 4


I'm back from Cairo just in time for a painting retreat at Peacock Pavilions.  Melanie Royals is working her unbelievable stencil magic with a talented group of Peacock Painters.  Oh!  We're painting the floor of a new yoga and pilates platform in the Peacock Pavilions olive grove in Marrakesh. (Yoga and pilates instructors take note!)

The inspiration I sent Melanie for this stencil project was Nigerian textile design.  Here's a sneak peek of the goings on:


You can't tell in the pictures but the floor is actually a beautiful indigo color that architect husband Chris hand mixed himself!


Look at this darling peacock feather that Melanie designed!  (Could I love it anymore?  I don't think so.)

More to come.  Stay tuned!
