The Perfect Hideaway

Browsing through the February/March issue of Elle Decor while waiting at the airport I was stunned by the intense beauty of the A Jewel of a Home in Morocco article featuring the Marrakech home of Liza Bruce and Nicholas Alvis Vega. The artistic couple utilized colors, styles and craftsmanship unique to the region including the wonderful geometric patterns of traditional Islamic design and the vibrant colors used in local clothing. Below are a few of my favorite images, for the full article and images please visit Elle Decor's website.

I'm really drawn to the geometric patterns used throughout this home. The use of the mirrors in the patterned wall of the bathroom is genius creating instant visual appeal while reflecting light to brighten the space naturally. 

The many outdoor spaces are no less spectacular. The pops of vibrant color among the greenery is marvelous. I am especially obsessed with the lush oasis of the turquoise pool surrounded by the papyrus and palms and those divine magenta lounge areas. Morocco is definitely going on the "Travel Destination" list.
