From the Office of…..

It’s been a couple of weeks since these posts of Maryam’s My Marrakech office showing our Royal Design Studio Moroccan collection stencils appeared on her blog and also on the great Decor8-right at the same time that our Royal Design Studio website got compromised by a virus/hacker/www no-do-gooder and all the links that came in went-to waste! I am NOT loving the whole internet thing right now but am getting better about it day-by-day now that the website is back up after much time and increasing frustration coinciding with a decreasing bank account. Heavy sigh. OK, done wallowing and back to looking at and thinking about pretty photos and designs. The last time I saw Maryam’s office was when we were there with our lovely little group painting this past January. Sorceress of words that she is, she had penned this little story which we set up in Petras Script and cut for her from a Modello Pattern.


It didn’t look like much then…..


but look at it now!


Maryam and Skylar have become quite proficient with the stencils and brushes I left for them, using Skylar’s Lace in the doorway…



and various borders and patterns from our Moroccan Stencil Collection on spraypainted storage boxes.


Of course, all the other decorative details and touches are just divine….


making this a very special place for a very special person. Images taken from Decor8 and My Marrakech.

    How cool is the floor!! I was wondering why we had not heard from you for a while. Those viruses are the PITS!!! I had some malwear hit mine but my Hubby got on it right away and fixed the nasty problem.
    But then I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a whole network to get comprised. So glad you have good tech’s working for you. Go gettim Melanie!!

    Love the whole look. . .what a great statement with that floor! I have to ask, though, and am quite serious: Where can I get that chair?!? Thanks!

    I think this looks wonderful, I would be crawling around the furniture to read the text. I am horrified to read that you had a computer nasty. You have my sympathy, I dread that happening

    Erin-you would have to ask Maryam about the chair…It IS really cool, isn’t it?

    Helen-the full story is posted by the door to save people’s knees, ha, ha. The computer woes continue on the back end. What a headache these Chinese haskers are!!!
