Wendy Shott added this to Book to Know: 'Marrakesh by Design'
Create a Moroccan salon. Pair a low-slung couch with an eye-catching rug and a smattering of tea tables, then add floor cushions and poufs. Several hanging lanterns grouped as shown here also is a popular Moroccan design flourish.Tip: The walls and ceiling of this living room are covered in tadelakt, a lime-based surface application that infuses rooms with a soft color and keeps walls free of dust. Tadelakt is perfect for anyone who those wanting to bring a desert languor into their home.
Laura Gaskill added this to 12 Rooms That Revel in Bohemian Opulence
Design finds: Moroccan tray tables, floor cushions, poufs and paper lanterns.Try this at home: If your living room is feeling a little stuffy, try adding a touch of the souk — low furniture paired with floor cushions creates a more relaxed vibe.More:8 Bohemian Bedrooms Trek Effortlessly Into Style
Becky Harris added this to 20 of the Coziest Living Rooms on Houzz
Glean inspiration from far-flung places. If you can't visit in person, look to books like Maryam Montague's Marrakesh by Design. It features this exotic Moroccan salon, which has relaxed seating on and not far off the floor.
Fred Albert added this to Sales Secrets for Interior Designers
When you show them a classy design that gives the feeling of Marrakech and stuffed elk without actually going there, the fact that you use exactly those words to describe it will almost always get them to embrace your concept.At this point, you might be rolling your eyes at what seems to be a blatant ploy. Seriously, it is not that. It is going out of your way to serve your clients well: to honor their wishes and hopes for their homes. And you will virtually guarantee yourself clients for life in the process.Next: Knowing how someone thinks can mean the difference between a successful presentation and a failure.
