Marrakesh, Tangier, Casablanca… If you dream of walking amidst peacocks in an olive grove, browsing magical bazaars, or soaking in an bath surrounded by gorgeous Moorish mosaic tiles as you listen to the songs of birds outside of your window, Morocco may be the ideal travel destination for you. Escape with Megan today as she takes you there.
Name: Megan Jones
Occupation: Educational Researcher
Location: York, England
Theme: Moroccan desert blues
Inspiration: It started with a tile, that I picked up on a trip to Morocco, and with some bowls. But I think the underlying theme is comfort and luxury with lots of scented bathing! I like the idea of a cool airy space in a scorched landscape – but remembering how cold it gets in the winter. Although ideally this room would be in Morocco, I think it could work in any interior as long as it’s kept modern and fresh with lots of jewel-like colours in the accessories – but not too much clutter.

I’m so glad that Alison designed a midwest-inspired mood board because this is where Amy Butler lives and takes inspiration from for her collection. I like seeing the crisp navy, nice accent.
Name: Alison Coffey
Occupation: Mental Health Counselor
Theme: Midwestern Summer Cottage
Inspiration: The Midwest! And blueberry pavlova, strawberry shortcake, yellow summer flowers, warm breezes, cool breezes, and laid back, casual living. Oh, and just about anything from that awesome company Maine Cottage. I’m a Midwestern girl, but I live in Texas. Oh how I miss the Midwest summers!

If you’ve ever imagined having your very own home spa with a touch of the far east, Joanna designed one centered around her passion for culture, travel, and all that is organic. And don’t miss her blog about living the organic lifestyle, it’s a new favorite of mine.
Name: Joanna Dyckhoff (pronounced ?dai-koff?)
Occupation: Designer (organic lifestyle products/services)
Location: Seattle, WA
Theme: Organic Bliss
Inspiration: My mood board is inspired by the organic spa experience, influenced by the ancient traditions of Asia and India. I love sustainable design, global culture and the spa experience, so I put them together to express a wonderfully vibrant and uplifting mood that I would like to see in my own meditation/lounge room! Another inspiration is the Chopra Center in NY where I was able to experience an amazing & rejuvenating Ayurvedic experience.
Design Notes: The golden brocade pouch is from World Market and a similar wooden hand can be found at INE Imports.
