Those pictures were taken at a friend house who owns a lovely chalet in the French Alps. I immediately fell in love with her converted attic which serves as a creative studio. What makes this charming attic so unique is the marriage of alpine and Marrakesh design elements which by the way aptly showcase butter-pecan brown Tadelakt walls, adding texture and lots of warmth. The studio is quaint, welcoming and imbued with bohemian flair, wooden parquet dark brown beams, and a gorgeous hand-woven Moroccan rug playfully complement one another without looking awkwardly staged. I believe that your home should (1) be comfortable and (2) utilitarian (3), most importantly should be an extension of you. In this case, this attic precisely achieved the owner’s goal who found herself inspired after visiting Marrakech. I’m definitely inspired and need to step-up my design game. In the meantime, I’ll settle with some delicious honey-drizzled baklava. Yum.
This attic is full of surprises and doesn’t lack rustic character with its stunning wooden parquets, an imposing wooden commode, thick wood beams which gives it alpine warmth.
