How to bring your foreign travels back home

April 19, 2012

One thing that The Dane(he really broached the subject) and I talked about while shopping in Morocco is how to bring our home déco purchases back to our home in Paris and not have it look a mini souk or Pier One Imports store. We bought tons of black soap and argan oil, incense and of course beautiful ceramics from this amazing country. We wanted to buy a lovely berber rug, but we opted on something smaller, something more intimate that would bring rich colors and form and not break the bank.

While strolling through the endless markets and using them as backrests at the Terrasse des Épices we fell for the amazing cushion covers so abundant in Marrakesh and so unique. No two covers will ever be the same. Sold!

The same style of cushions we purchased can be found in the new offices of Refinery 29 featured on Design Sponge. They are just beautiful and inviting. We’re cool geeks every time we look at them, smiling from ear to ear, thinking of our great time in Morocco.

    I’m fascinated by this argan oil I keep reading about. Are you using as a moisturizer? I hear it’s kind of miracle stuff.

    Hello Miss Josphine!
    Glad to hear from you. Yes, argan oil is THE product of the moment. There’s argan oil to cook with and then there’s argan oil used for cosmetic use. We bought six bottles of the stuff as it is so expensive here in France and in the States. I use it as a moisturizer for the body and for my hair. I used it on my face while in Morocco but I think it may be a little too heavy. Nuxe and Clarins have great oils for the face, not heavy at all. C’est tout!
