Dar Kawa, Marrakech



Visual travel to Morocco (once again) and to Dar Kawa house in Marrakech. Designed by talented Valérie Barkowski, this gem captures the heart of the moroccan essence in an astounding way. Taken with a fresh, modern twist, whilst keeping the traditional forms and tones, the atmosphere in what it seems to be a personal, sur mesure palace, awakens the exotic instincts of the long gone dessert princesses and the wild, curious nature of the spirited world explorers. 
It would be just a plain repetition of myself to express my love of the sleek stucco walls and built in furniture,  the ornamental metallic window balusters and the impressive shadows they create playing with the harsh sun. But I cannot ignore the delicate touches in the form of linens patterns and the art displayed on the walls that complete the contemporary look of the house.
