Peacock Pavilions is a boutique hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco created by Maryam Montague and her architect husband, Chris. It’s an amazing getaway complete with many attractive features from cement pavers in the gardens to the decorative painting that adorns many of the walls.
I know about the hotel by way of a new book, written by Montague, called Marrakesh by Design (Artisan $22 at Amazon – click on the name of the book to order). The book is a feast for the eyes, full of ideas and inspiration to help bring Moroccan décor into your home. Photos of the hotel offer so many ideas. The Medina Pavilion bedroom [top] is decorated with a custom Modello Designs stencil by Melanie Royals, who conducts decorative painting retreats annually at the hotel. What a fun vacation that would be. Shades of gold create a fantasy forest on a black ground and the room is fittingly named The Room of the Golden Gazelles.
The ensuite bathroom is a monochromatic affair in sunny yellow. Elegant Popham House Design Moroccan cement tiles cover the floor and shower wall. The pattern was made into a stencil and sandblasted onto the glass shower partition. The custom sink console is accented with a modern floral pattern tile counter. Whittington Collection’s Blooming Flower vessel sink ($135 at Signature Hardware) has a petal shaped and fitted with a faucet that has a graceful stem shape. Even the Normann Copenhagen pendant Light Norm 06 Small 17″ ($76 at Amazon) is flower-like in appearance, so the fragrant theme is clear.
