COLOR & PATTERN AT PLAY IN MARRAKECH

The dramatic blue patterned entry in the home of Moroccan tile designers.

The colorful 1950’s home of Moroccan tile designers Caitlin and Samuel of Popham Design holds back no reservation with it’s explosive color combinations and bold use of pattern. It playfully showcases the design duo’s tile designs and shows how powerful a careful eye for color can be. How incredible is this dramatic entry? The couple opted for a solid banister, creating mystery in the curve of the staircase and providing more surface for a classic striped pattern to slide up the walls. And the bold blue tiled floor is in the dining room two pictures below, out-done only by cerulean walls and a beetle-print wallpaper. This home tour is buzzing with energy and anything but boring!

I love how the hexagonal tiles in their sparse kitchen climb from the floor to the wall creating a fun, unconventional setting. And how serene is this bamboo-lined courtyard below?

  • Those floors though.. especially in the kitchen! Love how the same tile pattern works it way up the wall as well.

  • I LOVE this home tour!! Granted, blue is my favourite colour so I’m biased… heheh. But I love it! Nothing about the home is conventional, from the walls, to the flooring (flooring which I stinkin’ adore! Especially the hexagonal flow in the kitchen!) But can we talk about the triangular prism flooring in the multipurpose room with the bold clock though!? Wow whee! I can’t! Superb showcase Kev.
