Riad Tarabel, lovely greys and madarin trees

I would definitely want to stay in this beautiful riad one time. How lovely styled and serene. It is situated in the heart of the old medina in Marrakech, close to the famous square Jmaa el Fna.  Riad Tarabel is a haven of tranquillity where grand colonialism meets traditional Morocco. The riad has a beautiful courtyard with mandarin trees. Beautiful grays are used for the doors and windows. Elegant restful white in the bedrooms. Not the traditional Moroccan lanterns are used but these lanterns are just perfect in the atmosphere of riad Tarabel. Perfect little details, lovely whites, grays and beautiful details of traditional architecture.

Vila E Ourika, Morocco

Oh look at that view, really amazing stunning! Immediately I feel the desire to build a house in the beautiful mountains of Morocco in the middle of nowhere. This house is a project of Studio Ko it’s one of there beautiful projects.

The vila was built in the mountains of Ourika about one small hour from Marrakech. It’s amazing the difference from the always crowded city Marrakech and the almost untouched nature from the Ourika valley and mountains. That’s the beauty of Morocco.

The different views from this house looks like a living painting. The vila was built as a contemporary Kasbah (Moroccan traditionnal fortified house). The contemporary designs seems to fit easily in to the overall environment. The use of natural materials such as the warm, red toned Ourika stone and shades of nature colors brings peace, serenity and harmony. Im in love with the bathroom. It’s just like you take a shower in the open air. How beautiful are the tadelakt sink and wall.
