Still impressed by this new hotel in Marrakech, and still a die hard fan of La Famille we 'll take you on a interior design help tour, if only virtual, to show you ways to take home some of this and mix it with a Nordic style interior. The number of Moroccan interior design stores in the Netherlands is growing fast and Belgium is coming after but that might soon be different we have from a reliable source! so you do not REALLY have to take that lamp of half the size of the cockpit on that flight home. Unless you REALLY can't resist of course 😏. Therefore, hurray the Scandinavian style but 'never' without a touch of Moroccan sun, lazy vibe and 'je m'en fou' attitude.

What country are you from and do you have Moroccan interior design available to decorate? 

Nog steeds onder de indruk van dit nieuwe hotel in Marrakech, en ook wel nog altijd zwaar fan van La Famille gaan we deze week op zoek om dit gevoel ook mee naar huis te nemen.  Het aantal Marokkaanse interieur winkels in Nederland is ruim en ook België timmert heel erg aan de weg hebben we uit goede bron!  Je hoeft dus ECHT niet met die halve cockpit van een lamp op die vlucht.  Tenzij je natuurlijk ECHT niet kan weerstaan 😏.  Daarom, lang leve de Scandinavische stijl maar 'never' zonder een vleugje Marokkaanse zon, lazy vibe en je m'en fou.

placemats, lamps, chairs, wicker
These lamps are really popular right now and even Ikea (yes yes we finally have ikea in Morocco) has them for a while already. But if you can go for the real stuff. Less perfect, more soal!
