Brit Decor: Escape/ Riad Mena, Marrakech

Dreaming of an escape? I am...constantly. For me right now it's the allure of consistent sunshine, a change of architecture, and some exotic spices and foods - in a nutshell. 

One of the pitfalls of being a designer is my inability (or unwillingness) to sacrifice on style when choosing a destination. As well as the sun and some fine wine, I also like to soak up some good design because quite simply it's my 'thing'. Is anyone else with me on this?

Lately I've been fancying the notion of a trip to Marrakech to experience the vibrant delights of Morocco's fourth largest city; the stuff that stories of whimsical adventure & romance are made of. There's also the rich and sprawling array of colour, pattern and architecture with inspiration around every corner.

Another good reason for making this long overdue trip is the Riad Mena hotel, beautifully tucked away on the eastern edge of the bustling city. This is also an intimate residence with only five guest rooms, each designed by Romaine Michel-Meniere, who has cleverly applied a fusion of traditional Moroccan decor with contemporary touches, making this a residence fit for any 21st century style nomad.
