What were the mattresses covered in? - Are these custom mattress covers or just bed sheets?

The size and amount of the artwork seems small, but otherwise I like the room. I would do large artwork, maybe with pops of color on the wall. Or I would add more for a gallery wall. Love the seating and color scheme.

Really what makes this look like less appealing would be the chandelier. The rest it's fine for a specific taste.

Love the coffee table. Where did it come from? Is the table top marble or granite.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wendy Shott added this to Book to Know: 'Marrakesh by Design'
Install banquette-style seating for small living areas. Banquettes, as Montague explains, "are custom-built pieces made to fit a room's particular dimensions, maximizing space and providing comfortable seating for many people." Moroccan rooms are often limited in size and narrow as well, so banquettes evolved as the predominant way to configure a comfortable living space. Turn a cramped living room into a cozy oasis by furnishing a corner with banquette seating, colorful pillows and a plush rug.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Cozy Corner Banquettes for Kitchens Big and Small
Try multiple small tables instead of one center table. Casual, comfortable dining only needs a surface big enough for a plate or two.
