Ik weet het zeker!  Nog enkele weken en het voorjaarsgevoel is bij mij niet meer weg te slaan!! Misschien dat ik daarom al volop zit te stylen in off white, rotan en groen. Jawel Pantone, ik ben helemaal pro

jullie keuze

.  Maar ik moet wel zeggen dat ik nog steeds die hard fan ben van jullie keuze in 2013,

Emerald groen.

Ook in Marokko speelt wit, of beter verschillende tonen wit een grote rol bij het stylen van riads en hotels. Na een dag in de souks met zijn duizenden kleuren is het net even aangenaam om in een rustig decor weg te dromen.

Hierbij mijn vijf favoriete adresjes voor riads met prachtig witte gastenkamers.

Wij kunnen gewoon niet genoeg krijgen van het

Marokkaanse wit

. En jij?

... the light is coming back

... and white bedrooms are making it just a little easier to get up in the morning!

I'm sure!

A few more weeks and the Spring feeling will have me in its grip !!


that's why I  already started styling the new bedrooms for a project in off white, rattan and green! Yes Pantone

, I'm all pro your choice for 'colour of the year'!  But I must admit that I 'm still a die hard fan of your choice in 2013, Emerald green.

Also in Morocco, white, or rather different tones of white, play a major role in the styling of riads and hotels.  After a day in the souks with thousands of colours, it is just as pleasant to dream away in a quiet setting.

Here are my five favourite riads with beautiful white bedrooms. We can't get enough of Moroccan whites. What about you?

Going to a farm, being with animals, it brings out the kid in me! 

And that was what happened last Sunday when I was surrounded by pigs, cows, chickens, goats, doves, donkeys, horses, ducks....amongst 2 ha of pomegranates and olive trees. I felt like when I was living at the countryside in Flanders. Only, this time it was at an altitude of 1300m outside Marrakesh with in front the majestic High Atlas peaks of around 4000m. Swimming pool, a gorgeous lunch with homegrown vegetables everything biological. 
I can assure don't have to have kids to enjoy all of this. But when you do have, they feel in heaven. Especially with all the workshops going on. From mud building to henna painting and donkey rides.

I'm a little upset as I write this article because I just saw the trailer of one of these sensation seeking
programs on Belgian TV about Marrakech.
'Als je een hond wil slaan vind je altijd wel een stok' is an expression in Dutch. If you want to beat a dog you will always find something to do so.
Morocco is a different but beautiful country, and YES, people sometimes ask crazy prices and make up stories that you want to believe, but there is no one who forces you to buy nor pay nor close the deal for anything!
And if you DO end up buying, paying, regretting things, than look and go within yourself and ask yourself why you closed the deal at all!
We Belgian expats are making a short film and introduction to Marrakech the way we see it...soon in
Jackisback in Roeselare.
If you want to see another view on Marrakech and Morocco go here

So let me distract myself and you with some Belgian beauty to get in balance again :)!
Riad Safa, in the Moukef area. Now in Dutch hands and and ran as a guesthouse.
When I entered the house I felt the Belgian vibe, don't ask me why, but it is as if the mainly Flemish
architecture is based on this contemporary mix of raw and natural wood combined with subtle tones of white, black and earth colours. Mix all this with a 'no concession' attitude of the new owners and you have a place where style, comfort and relaxation are among the top priorities. I could also mention the Hammam and the massage zone at the roof. The Jacuzzi with the view over the Atlas mountains. The fantastic fish tagine and more that can be prepared for you for dinner....but GO AND DISCOVER yourself and do not let ONE be it maybe convincing tv program scare you off. WE are here to help you with whatever problem that might come your way!
Come and enjoy Morocco and Marrakech as it is. A wonderful inspiring place where you will get to know yourself a little more...
