Design Inspo | Fawakay Villas

I have to share a few pics of where we stayed recently in Morocco, because it was gorgeous. I also posted about the souk here. Fawakay Villas is a little compound located about half an hour from central Marrakech. They have three beautiful Moroccan guest villas, and we stayed in the smallest one.

Our villa’s bedroom was lovely and bright – neutral but with lots of texture, like the gorgeous Moroccan wedding blanket on the bed.

River rock covered the floors throughout the villa, extending up in place of baseboards, and up the edges of the built-in bed.

We had a built in bath nook, again done in river rock. I’m not usually a fan of bathtubs in the bedroom but I actually loved this one. Nestled away in a nook, it still felt separate.

Moroccan design is all about the details – like that faucet!

The open plan shower area, clad in Tadelakt, was equally stunning.

That mirror is made from an old tyre.

The villa had another bathroom with a big soaking tub, also done in the polished cement. I only had my iPhone and didn’t manage to get a good photo, so I pulled this one from their website.

On the upstairs terrace, there’s an outdoor bed – we actually tried sleeping under the stars one night but it was so noisy – African toads are louder than dogs barking!

Pretty details were sprinkled throughout, and the lighting was amazing, as you’d expect.

I loved the table and tie backs in the dining room…although I wish I’d straightened those pictures!

I asked if I could have a nosey around the other two Moroccan villas while they were between guests, and they were equally pretty…

The doors were all beautifully carved, hand painted wood, and I loved the massive daybed on the courtyard.

This bedroom was a mirror version of ours, only with clay tile floors and aqua accents.

In their nook, there was a little sitting area instead of a bathtub.

Gorgeous design details on the windows in this Moroccan villa…

And from the outside too…

 This is Doris, who wanders where ever she wants. She popped into the living room and tried to steal some biscuits.

There was a massive Berber tent at the bottom of the garden where you could share a shisha.

Moving on to the biggest of the three villas…

They were mid-cleaning for the next guests when I took these, which is why there aren’t any cushions on the chairs.

Another gorgeous bath nook!

Their master bath was a lighter version of ours, which I love equally as much. Again, I didn’t get a good photo of this so I pulled this one from their website.

And I’ll finish with their neutral twin room (also from their website).
