The Majorelle Garden, Marrakech
If Marrakech is on your destination list, make sure you drop by the Majorelle Garden. This cobalt blue oasis was designed by French artist, Jacques Majorelle. When Yves St-Laurent and Pierre Bergé came across this hidden gem, they decided to restore the garden and opened it to the public in 1947. Yves Saint-Laurent actually lived in that blue house and after he died, his ashes were scattered in the Majorelle Garden.
I arrived at the Majorelle garden bright and early, (it gets super crowded) and tried to capture all its beauty for you guys. The vegetation is incredibly luscious! It’s a crazy mix of giant cacti, so many different succulents and palm trees, lots of tall bamboo plants and large pathways bordered by big colorful planters. Add huge stands of bougainvillea, a large a pond with water-lilies, an amazing blue house with bright yellow accents and there you are, in an exotic Yves Saint-Laurent dream. -Stephanie
My god. Every time I see pictures of Mexico or even Morocco all I think is MAN WE ARE BORING here. Would you look at all these beautiful colors. I absolutely adore the blue/yellow mix, so vivid and shocking! I wish I could paint my house blue (or mint), but I doubt it’s within the city rules here in ND-Ile-Perrot.
That house would be perfect for me too 😉
Will you be getting any more Moroccan pillows soon? I love the multicolored/textured sequin ones, but most are sold out 🙁
PS: Beautiful pics!
Hi Emily, thanks for your sweet words! Yes, I brought back at least 65 new Moroccan pillows! 🙂 They will be added to the shop shortly, we need to fill them up and sew them but we have so many good ones, it is worth the wait! 😉 Keep in touch via our newsletter! xx
