Return to Marrakech
Marrakech is calling. Maryam and I have been emailing. A return trip to Marrakech is in my near future-and maybe yours?? I will be taking a small group on a painting trip this December to continue the creative work that was begun last May at Peacock Pavilions. I thought you’d like a peek into some of the inspiration for the featured project….
Maryam’s master bedroom ceiling will be aglow with a decorative treatment inspired by this pillow I snapped while visiting ABC Carpet&Home in NYC…
as well as the gorgeous, shimmery Moroccan Wedding blankets that Maryam sells.
Let’s just say that our project will involve imitation silver leaf and tiny round mirrors. Can you see it?!
Some mod chairs snatched from La Mamounia may get some interesting calligraphy…
A concrete bedroom floor will be painted with an intriguing labyrinth pattern from our forthcoming new collection…
and the project that has me drooling….a feature wall with a two color metallic graphic based on this amazing screen. The animals you see will be joined by some friends, including an artful peacock, of course!
There are still a few spots open for this upcoming trip. If you’re up for an adventure that includes adding your artistic skills to the forthcoming premier boutique hotel in Marrakech , soaking in the sights, sounds, aromas and tastes of an exotic tourist destination, quading in the desert, enjoying the amazing hospitality of Maryam and the quaint Hotel du Tresor, AND doing your Christmas shopping in Marrakech’s famous souks, you might just want to click here…..

Look forward to joining you, meeting Maryam, and experiencing the magic of Morocco. Enjoyed the sneak-peak at your “seeds of inspiration” for the decorative finishes we will be working on @ Peacock Pavillion…the ‘mind-walking’ involved in design development, finish recipes, and sample boards for special projects like this is an adventure — in and of itself.

Wow, a return trip and the promise of a workshop too!! What a dream of a place to work I’m sure! Wish I could join you sigh….
The silvery inspiration fabric is so gorgeous! Definitely inspiring, I agree.
