Mod and Quirky in Morocco
Dar Beida or The White House is located in Essaouira, about 2 1/2 hours from Marrakech. The house was renovated by the design team of Emma Wilson and Graham Carter and together they have blended Moroccan style with a funky modern twist. While maintaining ancient sandstone columns and thuya ceilings, they managed to add modern character and a good dose of quirkiness. Mannequin head on the shelf? No thanks, not for me, but I can appreciate the textures, colors, and collections that make this a one-of-a-kind home. The bonus is that you can rent it for your next vacation or holiday. pb
From leasing company The Modern House…
“The food markets are virtually on the doorstep, and the town’s long sandy beach is approximately ten minutes away on foot. Each guest is given a guided tour of the medina by the English owners, who will point out the good restaurants and activities, including a cookery school, hammam, horse riding, kite surfing, trips to secluded beaches, swimming pools and souks.
There is a telephone in the house for visitors to use if required, as well as Bose speakers for use with an iPod, and wireless internet access. There is also a large selection of books, CDs and board games. For around £10 per head, a chef will cook a traditional Moroccan meal and bring it to the door.”
