... some Moroccan inspo

... a little bit of Moroccan-inspired fashion and interiors! 
All the fashion images here are from Femina.dk magazine, model Ingrid Wrisley lensed by Helene Linsjo. The photo shoot was arranged in Peacock Pavillions, a large villa hotel with a Nomadic spirit, belonging to Maryam Montague, author of the book MARRAKESH BY DESIGN.

I can never resist a temptation to buy lots of little things that help me create home away from home! Such is all this amazing stuff I picked up from the two famous Lebanese brands:  
BOKJA DESIGN  -- furniture pieces and a set of three cushions & RANA SALAM DESIGN -- all the rest. 
POMEGRANATE HAMSA HAND (a charm protecting from negative energy) TRIVET by MELANIE DANKOWICZ via AHALIFE

... i was feeling pretty well with my ordinary FLY mobile, until the moment i saw this...
sigh*... iPhone case! It has become the main reason why i absolutely need to finally get my own one!:D

Today I love...

These images have been waiting in my 'post-to-be', hard drive folder for a few days, then I realized their surprisingly matching relation, and here they all are! -- some amazing Middle Eastern kaftans and dresses, a fresh fit for Spring and some gorgeous tableware and furniture pieces from SILSAL DESIGN HOUSE /check also their FB page for more inspiration/!

By the way, the two images above (in the upper left hand corner and the middle one in the bottom row) are MZEE DESIGN creations, a beautiful women's wear brand by Kuwaiti duo Mashael and Zahya Al Dabbous. They don't seem to have a website yet, but they are contactable on Instagram as MZEE_DESIGN.
SILSAL's PRODUCTS FEATURED ABOVE: BLUE BLOSSOMS BOWLS, SCRIBBLES TURKISH COFFEE CUP SET and TARATEESH SERVING VESSELS ... and -- I said first that I couldn't identify the brand behind these fash.looks, but now I notice it's written DAR TARTAR in one of the pics here. So, yes, all these amazing dresses are supposedly by a Kuwaiti fashion label DAR TARTAR.
