(The Parker via My Marrakesh)


I’ve been dying to know what these rugs were ever since I saw them at The Parker in Palm Springs. When I saw them pop up at Desire to Inspire via images of April Tidey’s amazing interiors I just had to ask. Thanks to midcenturyjo I now know.

Moroccan Beni Ouarain Rugs

I’m blogging it here so I don’t forget.

***A quick google informed me that they are VERY expensive…so never mind. You will never see them at The Brick House. Boo Hoo.

Desire to Inspire)

Why must lovely dark houses keep popping up and persuading me to paint my house charcoal! Dammit!!! I know, I live in the desert. It is a HORRIBLE idea to paint my house almost black when it can easily get over 100 degrees for three months and I have no insulation.

Oh but I LOVE it SO much. When is form better than function?
