Marrakesh By Design (My Marrakesh, Maryam Montague)

My friend Maryam's new book is available to order from my book shop!  I remember exactly when she announced that she got a book deal. It was so exciting!

In a world filled with beige interiors, Morocco is the perfect antidote: a refuge for addicts of saturated color, a haven for devotees of intricate pattern, a destination for admirers of striking architecture. For anyone who wants to add Morocco's spicy design mix into their own home, Maryam Montague, the personality behind the award-winning blog My Marrakesh, explains how to do so with the building blocks of Moroccan design—from the colors, patterns, and textiles to the archways, fountains, gardens, and so much more. With illustrative text and gorgeous photographs, Maryam shows how Moroccan design comes to life in real villas and riads and in her own magnificent home and guesthouse. Eager DIYers will love the ideas presented in sidebars and in how-to projects that can be applied to homes anywhere. Filled with all the richness of Morocco,Marrakesh by Design will transport readers straight to the souks and salons of this exotic city while showing them the multitude of ways to live with the enticing elements of Moroccan design. 

I've written about Maryam before here, here, here, here and here.

Maryam Montague has made a career doing humanitarian work, but design is her passion. She and her husband built, decorated, and now run a boutique hotel on the outskirts of Marrakesh. Maryam's eye for interior design has garnered features on HGTV and the Travel Channel. She also runs her own carpet and textile business, Red Thread Souk. Maryam's destination, lifestyle, and design blog, My Marrakesh, has millions of followers and was voted Best African Weblog in the 2011 Annual Weblog Awards. Maryam resides in Marrakesh with her husband, their two children, and three peacocks.

For your flight to Marrakesh or your lounging daydream afternoon, may I suggest 2 other books to hug with Marrakesh By Design: my poetry above and my upcoming novella below. 

...and in other breaking news, my Novella is coming soon!
