What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wendy Shott added this to Book to Know: 'Marrakesh by Design'
Layer, and layer some more. As Montague states, "Moroccan style is not for the minimalist." The exuberant mix of colors and patterns in this cozy nook shows the Moroccan bohemian style to full effect. To get this look, pile a variety of textiles on your bed or couch and top with a cacophony of cushions. Lay a colorful rug over a patterned floor. Remember, more is more.Tip: Poufs are not only a great decorative element; they provide seating and extra surface space in a pinch.
Boho signposts: Lots of North African elements, mixed patterns, a slight hippie look. Points off for lack of weird art.
I grew up bicoastal and then lived in Morocco, where I still have a second home. I am a painter, and my father is a huge donor to major art museums. My children attend a very highly rated private school.
