In a Land Not So Far Away
Arabian Nights in contemporary Morocco
Though it lies just across the Mediterranean from Europe, barely a stone's throw from Spain's southernmost tip, Morocco couldn't possibly be farther away.
With its mountainous and desert landscapes, labyrinthine souks, delectable cuisine, exquisite rugs and textiles, vibrant mosaics, fragrant odors, mesmerizing music, and welcoming people, Morocco is a most alluring and tantalizingly exotic destination. Digging a little deeper into the myth of Morocco, Barbara and Ren Stoeltie bring us this eclectic selection of homes to demonstrate all that is most wonderful about the Moroccan style from tiled, turquoise swimming pools and lavish gardens to carved wooden furniture and jade-colored marble fountains.
With more than 500 pages featuring brand new, unpublished photographs, flipping through these fairy tale-like visions of exotic havens (ideally while sipping a steaming cup of sweet, fragrant mint tea) will instantly whisk you away.
