Peacock Pavilions in Marrakesh: and a tale of inspirations

Feeling inspired by many things at Peacock Pavilions these days.  Here's a few:

Talismanic hands of Fatima from a favorite jeweler

Some new bones and Simon Winchester's book on skulls (interesting, perhaps, for only the most ardent skull enthusiasts).

A new but old Moroccan carpet from Red Thread Souk for my dining room.  Can you see that I have also upholstered my chairs in Moroccan rugs, too?

Collections of odds & ends everywhere.  Here some entomology pins from Merchant & Mills, a packet of gold sequins from Figue, a notebook from my friends at Imperial Black, and photography by Alexis de Vilar. I bought the wood arrow in South Africa.

My family peacock, Maurice, at Peacock Pavilions. I'm still in awe of his splendour.  Really.

Morocco: and a tale of bringing the Moroccan souk to you!


It's my birthday today!  Oui!

I wanted to celebrate this year with some Moroccan gorgeous, with some ethnic chic, with some exotic glamour.  Yes, I wanted to celebrate by bringing the Moroccan souk right to you! So for the first time ever, I'm offering free shipping (to North America and Europe) on Moroccan carpets and rugs (including Beni Ouarain) and Moroccan wedding blankets (known as handira) in Red Thread Souk.  This is a huge savings!  And the exotic beauty of these pieces is truly awe inspiring.  {Fresh stock of incredible sequined flatweaves or kilims are especially enchanting}.
