Marrakech: and a tale of my still curious home - Part 2: my guestroom

And the tour of my curious things continues....  Today the guest room in my home at Peacock Pavilions. For friends and family when they come to Marrakesh to visit.  


A lamp made by an American artisan from my own Buddha hand, ceramic bird and religious charms.  Moroccan roses in a vase that doubles as a Moet champagne container.

A wool pom pom blanket of my own design as well as a vintage Moroccan flat weave cushion (soon in Red Thread Souk!).  One of my vintage Moroccan wedding blankets, known as handiras (Scroll down to see those for sale here).

Old curly shoes bought in Pakistan. A book on Diana Vreeland given to me by her son and a book on Mary given to me by my father.


A vintage motorcycle model found in the Marrakesh souks rests on an antique Tibetan chest.


Pillow I made from Egyptian fabric with Arabic calligraphy.


A vintage suzani with a crocheted & sequined border bought on assignment in Kyrgyzstan.  A glimpse of the stenciled floor -- a Moroccan bone weave pattern I found -- that was created into a stencil by Royal Design Studio.

A brass bowl with a bird, purchased in Cairo. In the backdrop, old tribal earrings I bought in Yemen.


An 18th century Buddha given to me by my parents.


Vintage Moroccan baskets resting on old tassel hanging from Afghanistan.  I made the table with tiles from Popham Design.


A lamp I made from an old beaded Afghan hat.  A vintage toy car found in the Marrakech souks.

Antique mirrors and santos halo from Peru.  Feather donated by my peacock, Maurice.
