If you are anything like me, you are still flicking around the internet planning your summer holiday.
A tad last minute possibly but never too late!
And if Airbnb is your thing - there are still deals to be done, certainly if you are in search of some sunshine in Assilah.
A friend of mine often stays in this perfect medina bolthole - I love visiting her when she is there because it is so quiet and peaceful - a wonderful respite to the clamour of the krakia down my end of the medina! Just take a left just a little further on . . .
Although small (it's perfect for 2) there is a wonderful sense of uncluttered light and space.
A burst of colour is the perfect backdrop for the plants on the little patio leading off the bedroom.
Most of the furnishings and decor are from the medina - so haven't had far to go and feel right at home!
The temptation to over decorate in morocco is huge - I think this calm and uncluttered interior is why I find this house so restful and love visiting.
Make yourself a cup of coffee in the kitchen then step up onto the terrace to gaze over the medina.
calm, understated, organic . . . all qualities that drew me to these images of this lovely holiday home in Tunisia. I think I could spend a lot of time here, plus on a more selfish note, there are also a lot of ideas and inspirations that I want to keep on file for myself - one day! I felt these pictures had a weekend kind of feel - the kind of thing you want to peruse with a morning coffee, not too taxing!
A few items have already found their way out of the medina to new homes,
while I, in the meantime, have been seeing what other creative people out there are putting in their Etsy shops and am living vicariously through my "favourite" list as I decide which item to succumb to.
I have always had a bit of a thing for green and orange - olive green and burnt orange to be precise, and I still cannot believe I left behind swathes of moss green and vintage orange velvet curtains in the farmhouse we lived in in Wales when we packed up and left for Asian shores several years ago . . . but there was a limit to what could be packed!
More recently I have found myself harking back to this colour combination here on Pinterest,
so I thought I would share these images in a post, and win you over to the greens and tangerines, the olives and the umbers.
love it x I'm off now for a stroll around the medina to see what else I can find in shades of olive and orange.
