A lovely place in Marrakech

I’m just back from Morocco where I quite fortuitously dodged the British snow last week.  Other than one day of torrential rain and dramatic thunder and lightning, unfortunately experienced while we were driving through thick fog on single-lane dirt roads in the Atlas mountains — I’m sure the mountains still echo with my gasps and expletives — the weather was lovely and balmy, around 24 degrees most days. 

In Marrakech I met up with the lovely and talented Maryam Montague at Peacock Pavilions, the stunning guest house/hotel she and her architect husband Chris have built just outside the city.  Over a steaming glass of mint tea, we chatted about Morocco, Jo Malone perfumes, English chocolate, loving and collecting beautiful things, foraging in the souk, and, of course, interior design.  She treated Hamid and me to a tour of the beautiful rooms, full of Beni Ourain rugs, vintage textiles, and unusual trinkets that she’s collected on her travels.  Do have a look at www.peacockpavilions.com and you can follow Maryam’s Moroccan adventures on her My Marrakesh blog at moroccanmaryam.typepad.com (where you’ll also see lots of her gorgeous photography of Peacock Pavilions and Morocco).

Here’s a little taster!

    Peacock Pavillions is truly beautiful. I had the chance to be invited to a candlelight diner by Maryam (with other guests !) earlier this year and we were all amazed by the beauty and originality of the place.
