It all started with the April issue of Elle Decor and an article about Maryam Montague and her husband, Chris Redecke’s home in Marrakesh. I spied a peacock pillow on the daybed in a photo of the beautiful blue master bedroom.
You may have guessed that blue is my favorite color from last week’s post, Blue Mood. Pick up a copy of Elle Decor. It’s a great story about a very interesting couple. They have a home furnishings shop, the Red Thread Souk. I’ve been to Africa 4 times and find it to be a fascinating continent. I’ll be touching shore again in Casablanca during a cruise of the Canary Islands in October. This will be my second visit to Morocco. When I Googled the Red Thread Souk, lo and behold, the name of the couple’s home/eco-resort is Peacock Pavilions! Of course, I thought of our Peacock Patterns. Hence, the title for this post evolved: Red Thread Souk-Peacock Pavilions-Peacock Patterns. How serendipitous is that?
Here are some photos of our peacocks as well as photos from Maryam’s award-winning blog, My Marrakesh.
Look at all the patterns in this guest bedroom and yet they all work together.
