Morocco has been on my bucket list for years. This half Japanese girl that grew up in a minimal aesthetic environment wanted to one day be immersed in a land of decorative surfaces, shiny embossing on everything, and a land of "when in doubt – decorate it." The jewel in the land of Morocco for me was Fes.
On my recent trip to Morocco, I found a very special place. It was the Majorelle Gardens in Marrakech - previously owned by Yves Saint Laurent. This gorgeous, vibrantly painted, tranquil sanctuary was a passion project that lasted 40 years by French painter Jacques Majorelle, and then passed to Yves St. Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé.
