I have recently decided to make Marrakesh, Morocco my full time place of residence having lived in London for a long time and the South of France for a short time. I have visited Marrakesh many many times in my life and have always admired its beauty and extremes. This Blog is about lifestyle, travel, interiors, food and how to become a true Marrackchi.
I have always had strong links with interior design, My Father worked in Interiors and imported ceramic tiles into the UK from Italy and Spain, furniture and fashion from India, so it was only natural for me to train as a buyer. Firstly I worked in the movies buying costumes for films and theatrical companies. While working with the stylists and helping them out with the occasional fitting when a big star couldn’t make it, they advised me to get an agent and start modelling, which I did and worked as a model for the next 8 years.
As everyone knows this is not a long lasting career move, but hey the money was good and it was a fun way to spend your 20′s. Met my super talented husband, who appears in this blog (but I’m not telling you who) and started travelling the world, on our travels we started to buy things for our house, and this was the start of the next phase of our lives, becoming suppliers of ethnic goods. We rented a big warehouse space in west London and filled it with container loads of goodies and supplied many shops and decorated many clubs and bars and houses in England. So over the past 15 years I have travelled around buying, but I was always drawn back to Morocco especially Marrakech I love the interiors I love the way design is developing here.
We did for a short while try moving to a small town in the south of France between Nice and Monaco called St Jean Cap Ferrat, but it wasn’t for us, it was cool but not enough action going on. so we moved on to Marrakech
My blog is for anyone who is interested in Marrakech, whether its just to see whats going on here but it could also be an interesting guide if you are planning on visiting Marrakech as I am constantly updating all the really cool places to visit as they open.
