Holy Tabouleh!

I am leaving for Marrakech this Friday! EEK! I am SO excited and SO stressed with SO many things to do before I go I can’t stop capitalizing my words! OK, calm down. Breath. Breath again. That’s better. After exchanging about a million plus 6 emails with the famous and fabulous Maryam, we think we have all the details nailed down and MAN we are going to do some pretty fabulous things at Peacock Pavilions! There will be stenciled concrete floors


Suzani-inspired ceilings


Painted desks


Wonderful woven patterns inspired by camel-bone furniture inlays


and some other VERY cool things that I CAN’T share because they are special patterns that are secrets that will be used on equally special secret surfaces at Peacock Pavilions for a super secret project that I’ve been sworn to secrecy about. BUT if you pull the decoder ring out of your Lucky Charms cereal box and put on your special 3D glasses you MIGHT be able to figure it out. If not, I’m sorry, you must wait along with the rest of the world.

    The painter girl can only find herself painting blue. Blue, blue everywhere. She is so blue, if only she could go to Marrakesh….

    Man, those 3d Lucky Charms decoders are some kind of valuable. You wouldn’t believe how handy mine is. I wear it on a gilt thread around my neck:)

    Does secret mean you’re wingin’ it? Just jokin’ Mel, wish I could be a bee in your bonnet, I’d love to be on this trip with you and your fabulous painters. Can’t wait to read all about it. :) Bon

    I’m so excited to be one of the Lucky Charms finishers meeting Melanie to work at Peacock Pavilions! Even I know not the secret finishes! But knowing Melanie, and as much as I can possibly read about Maryam (and that’s quite a lot!), I can’t possibly dream how wonderful this experience and the project itself will be!

    Stay tuned and prepare to be Charmed…
