After traveling the world with her husband, Maryam Montague decided that Marrakesh, Morocco would become the place they called home, built their business, and raised their children. It comes as no shock that the couple accumulated a lot of “stuff” in all of their travels, and luckily her husband, Chris, happens to be an architect and was able to build her a gorgeous home to house all of her worldly items. The couple’s home is also their business. Half resort, Peacock Pavilions welcomes travelers to come and explore Marrakesh and fall in love with the city for themselves.
Maryam has created a gorgeous home (see below), promising tons of design inspiration. And if the photos alone don’t make you want to visit (the Peacock Pavillions that is) then read her award winning blog, http://www.mymarrakesh.com
Just recently, she combined her love for Morocco, design, and writing into her first book (the very reason for the timing of this spread featured in Elle Decor, May 2012) “Marrakesh by Design”. I bought the book the week it came out, and i love all of the decorating tips drenched in Moroccan belief and tradition, as well as the buying guide for purchasing items from Morocco. Its a very well done book, and one i highly recommend.
The book’s tribute: “For my parents, who gave me the world, and for my husband, who came with me to explore it.” Well stated.
That large black and gold tapestry that just ever so slightly reminds me of the Unicorn tapestries, I die.
