This is the Marrakech home of David and Geraldine Schneuwly…a French couple living in Morocco. From the outside, the home is all typical Moroccan…with adobe walls over 3 feet thick. The house was designed with a main room almost 100 feet long.
Geraldine designed the interiors with a mix of furnishings collected at the flea markets in Casablanca and Marrakesh. Her decor style includes a mix of classic Moroccan pieces, mid century modern, Danish design and French all in one. Apparently much of which was found in Morocco…furniture transplanted to the African country by French people who moved there in the 50s and 60’s…and now can be found for sale as vintage pieces in the open markets.
The living room pictured above is a perfect example of the mix. The sofa is covered in Berber fabric and the cushions are made from vintage Moroccan fabric as well. The armchair is vintage French…and many of the other mid century items were found in Moroccan antique stores and at the flea market (Puces).
Love the arches and the hint of turquoise. My favorite is the patio with the black and white tile. Dream home right?

What do you think of this home? Do you think the mix of Moroccan and mid-century works?
P.S. Had a fun dinner last night with DS and VS at the Soho House. Lots of ideas brewing! Check out COCOCOZY Instagram @cococozy to follow along on my day to day and to get more design inspiration!
