With its intoxicating mix of Berber, Arab, Spanish and French Art Deco styles, Morocco could well be called the birthplace of fusion - and it continues to absorb design influences from the West. "New Moroccan Style" reveals four emerging trends in this design melting pot: delirium, fusion, minimalism and repose. Each represents a different aesthetic, yet all are distinctly Moroccan. The book takes readers on a tour through private homes, stylish resorts and intimate guesthouses. Entertainment is as much a part of the Moroccan experience as the glorious rugs and intricate furnishings. Complementing the various houses are recipes and tips for entertaining Moroccan-style, as well as a comprehensive source guide for travellers and shoppers.

From the Inside Flap:

Perched atop the African continent where East meets West, Morocco has been a destination for Europeans and Americans since before the turn of the last century. With its intoxicating mix of Berber, Arab, Spanish, and French Art Deco styles influencing and informing both homes and hotels, this country may be the birthplace of fusion. And as new waves of travelers succumb to Morocco?s charms and make it their home, they have added their own styles to the mix, respecting the roots of Moroccan design, yet altering it in subtle ways.

In New Moroccan Style, author Susan Sully reveals four emerging trends in this world of design: Delirium, Fusion, Minimalism, and Repose. Each represents a different aesthetic?whether it be the clean, elegant lines of Minimalism or the mingling, sinuous Asian and Islamic notes in Fusion?yet all are distinctly Moroccan. In chapters replete with gorgeous photographs by Jean Cazals, Sully takes readers on an unprecedented tour through private homes, stylish resorts, and intimate guest houses?many never before published.

We visit Dar Tamsna, outside Marrakech, the epitome of Moroccan fusion, and a riad, or courtyard dwelling, that is a meditation in gray and white. Orientalism reigns in a villa in a date palm grove and an old stone house outside of Essaouira has been transformed into a sensually rustic retreat. Sully catalogs both traditional crafts and contemporary arts to show readers how to introduce the beauty and spirit of Morocco into their home décor?as Gogo Ferguson has in her Martha?s Vineyard house.

Entertainment is as much a part of the Moroccan experience as the glorious rugs and intricate furnishings. Complementing the various houses are twenty-five recipes and tips for entertaining Moroccan-style, as well as a comprehensive source guide for travelers and shoppers.

A treasure trove of ideas and images, New Moroccan Style is a treat for the eyes, palate, and imagination, brought to light by a fresh new voice in design.
