I’m not sure that there’s a more heavenly material to me than marble. It’s quite ridiculous how something even as simple as a bookend or dish made of this substance can send me swooning. Those who are lucky enough to have larger pieces – perhaps a coffee table or kitchen island – I already envy. But this house? Well, it sets me over the edge like a four-year-old in the cookie aisle. I’m about to throw a tantrum I want it so bad!
Of course, the setting certainly helps. Located in Tangiers, the Moroccan architecture and details are quite perfectly mixed with modern pieces. Which makes sense considering the owners: Hervé Van der Straeten – the furniture and accessories designer – and Bruno Frisoni, the designer behind Roger Vivier shoes.
The dining room and salon below might be my two favorites – there is a simplicity and tranquility to them both that at once feels artful and inviting.
I’m officially ready for a Moroccan getaway now…
