Location: Marrakech, Morocco
An adventure searching for the perfect derelict Riad, through the constuction itself, to the end result (insha'Allah!)

A flying visit!

Just back from a totally bonkers 2 day solo visit to Riad Romm'an in Marrakech. As well as checking up on the building work, it was decision time for floor tiles, tadelakt colours and for many of the interior details. The boys on site were really keen to see if I was happy with the work done to date. 


Yosef gives us a wave from the 2nd bedroom

Fountain discussions in the courtyard

Bijmat and Jerrida tile patterns to choose for the floors

We dashed around Marrakech in Hicham's pick up truck (above) buying taps, sinks and loos (all 5 of them!) and even an oven and hob! 

We even had time to look for antique doors at the Bab el-Khemis market.

 Now back home to catch my breath!

  1. All looks so magnificent! But I'm sure the reality at times is like pulling teeth really slowly! (Or is that just me doing home renovations!!) Do like those painted doors, a bit like the Sheesham wood in India...Sigh, can't wait to Visit Morocco and your 'Made with love' Raid 1 day
