A colorful home in Morroco with the most stunning patterns

Whenever you find a project photographed by Richard Powers, you know you are for a visual feast.

After falling in love with Morocco, Caitlin and Samuel Dowe-Sandes, American expats who own and run the tile company, Popham Design and their four-year-old daughter decided to live in a 1930s bungalow in the Guéliz neighbourhood of Marrakech.

Generous splashes of blue and geometric patterns are decorating their home and giving a sort of showroom character of their own collections such as  the ‘Zigzag’ tiles of their dining room.

“We felt that it begged for a powerful punch,” says Caitlin about the hallway. “The wide stripes would lead people from the entrance to the dining room, which is filled with natural light.”

The couple has picked up many flea-market treasures including these stunning leather armchairs and twin portraits found in Marrakech, while the 1960s circular coffee table was discovered in Paris.

“Marrakech is so pink and dusty – we used shades of blue to give ourselves a break from the pink,” says Caitlin. The Ferm Living ‘Feather’ wallpaper brings an element of graphic pattern and elegance contrasting with the bolder blue wall.

What do you think about using a pretty bold pattern for the flooring and wall ? I guess the interesting part here is the height of the patterned wall. Again black & white and blue seem to be one of their favorite color combinations. The ‘Hex Zigzag’ tiles make a serious style statement here, anchored by white paint that runs to the ceiling and make the room so much lighter.
