moroccan and rollin'

My husband and I have a fun Moroccan restaurant, named Marrakesh, that we like to go to in our neighborhood.  The tables are low, intricately decorated with cushioned banquets and mounds of pillows and cushions, sexy lanterns and knotted draperies. The experience transports me to another time and place.   Think Casablanca with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Very romantic. A must have is there is the bisteeya, a flaky pastry filled with chicken, almonds, garlic and sprinkled with cinnamon. It's perfect with mint tea or a minty mojito. I can't help wanting to bring a little bit of that experience home with me.  With a little inspiration from pinterest, maybe I can...  


Ciao! Fabiana


  1. Hello, Fabiana. We just returned from Newport Beach earlier this week...even lovelier than I remembered. I'm really, really trying to add you to my bloglist, but each time I try the address goes to your old blog. Any idea why this is happening? I'm going to check to see if I'm following you. If I'm not, I will be your newest follower. By the way, we ate at 3Thirty3 while there, and loved the food and the ambiance. Nice to "meet" someone from there! ~Zuni

  2. Oh I just loved this post - love all Moroccan themed rooms!
    Definitely your newest follower - would love to have you follow back
    when you have the time!

  3. Hey Fabiana! I LOVE this look! Definitely where the shabby chic-bohemian look originated from. It's so happy, cozy, and inviting -- and very romantic. Thanks for the inspiring photos!!!

    xoxo laurie
