Mrhba Bkm Fi Bladi Blog!

In case you're wondering what the title is "Welcome to my blog" in Arabic, the language in Morocco! 

As you all know I am off on a mini vacation, and except for the air travel part of it, (every flight I have taken so far has been delayed!!!), I'm having  a great time. My travel blog is up and running so do check it out.

In the meantime, Susi from Arcadian Lighting has kindly offered to do a guest post on my blog. And she said she'd write on Morocco! Anyone who knows me even a teeny tiny bit knows my love affair with all things Moroccan! So take it away Susi!

Hi, I'm Susi, a writer from the Arcadian Lighting blog, a fabulous source for inspiration from lighting fixtures to dÈcor. I'm so happy to be visiting Saffron and Silk today to talk about Moroccan style, specifically magical Moroccan spaces.† There is a love affair right now with all things Moroccan. Have you noticed? Are you embracing it? I am in love with the colors and patterns of Morocco so am delighted to share these 8 Magical Moroccan Spaces with you.† Hope you are inspired to add a bit of Moroccan magic to your dÈcor. Enjoy!

I love all things Moroccan too, may be because I love all things Indian too with rich colors/textures/patterns and the two are quite similar with some exceptions of course. Moroccan style appeals to a lot of people that are Indian or Indian at heart :)
