Houzz Contributor. Hi There! I currently live in a 1920s cottage in Atlanta that I'll describe as "collected."
I got into design via Landscape Architecture, which I studied at the University of Virginia. I've been writing about design online for quite a few years over at Hatch: The Design Public Blog.

Between Sex and the City II, Casablanca, rocking the casbah, plans for a trip this fall falling through and My Marrakesh, I've had Morocco on the brain lately.
What makes it Moroccan? Well, I admit, I am not an expert, but I have certain associations - I think of Yves Saint Laurent and Talitha Getty in their hideaways. I think of marketplaces and long gauzy skirts and curtains. I think of a hippie-living Kate Winslet in Hideous Kinky. Of furniture inlaid with intricate patterns. Of elaborately patterned textiles that glimmer and reflect light. Tiles and screens with precisely punctured geometric patterns. Lanterns made of metal and colored glass. Comfort sitting on the floor - oversized pillows and poofs.
What looks do you associate with Morocco? Please share them with me in the comments. Also, please forgive me if some of this is technically from India or elsewhere. I'm thinking of Morocco as a jumping off point for imported exotic style.
