Modern Moroccan Tea Room

Rebecca Mitchell Interiors
9 years ago
last modified: 9 years ago
When clients from Morocco asked me to furnish their two-bedroom, two-storey Griffintown (adjacent to downtown Montreal) condo and wanted to include a Moroccan tea room in the mezzanine between the two bedrooms, I was hooked. As you can see from the original space, however, there were definitely challenges. The white walls had to stay. The awkward shape of the windows had to be addressed. The baseboard heater and air-conditioning unit were an eyesore. And did I mention that the entire space was tiny? But this space definitely ended up being the star of the entire 2-storey condo project!

    And here is the original painting (which I found on Etsy) that inspired the palette and pattern for this tea room.

    @applepie - thank you for your comments and question. Yes they are ripple fold curtains installed into a ceiling track and they open and close.

    Thanks for info. Just curious about how you coordinated the rug and patterned curtains: were they from a single manufacturer or were they chosen individually?

    Just wondering how the HVAC works with being blocked by the drapes? Beautifuul color palette and dualing mirrors!

    @SophieW - The window treatments were designed to create height and drama and also camouflage the unattractive heater and air-conditioning unit while allowing light to flood in when they remain closed. For safety, there is a six-inch space between the heater and the drapery panels which are non flammable. If it gets too hot or cold, each panel can be pushed to either side.

    @apple pie - I found the rug and looked for fabrics that complemented it:) the window treatments and floor and back cushions were all custom made with custom fabrics.

    @apple pie - You can purchase these fabrics through a distributor of Joanne Fabrics. I don't know if you can purchase them online without a designer. The patterned fabric is Joanne Oakland 66J001 and the sheer fabric is Joanne Sydney 65J5101.

    Hi Rebecca. Where did you purchase the tables and mirrors?

    Hi Samiah - thank you for your question. This project is from many years ago but the table was purchased from West Elm and the mirrors possibly from Uttermost. Best regards from Montreal, Canada and happy new year!

    Thanks for the response! Sorry, I didn't check the date. I found the picture on Google images and loved the design. Thinking of doing something similar for the prayer room, but I doubt I'll find the items in Halifax. Happy New Year and stay safe :)

    @arcy_gw This project is from 2014 so I guess that means it has stood the test of time! Our clients were a Moroccan family moving to Montreal who had requested a modern tea room.
