Marrakech went to the top of my travel wish list when I first read about the redesign of the famous La Mamounia hotel by Parisian interior designer Jacques Garcia in 2009. I was first introduced to Garcia’s design style when visiting Hôtel Costes in Paris several years ago and I immediately became a huge fan – enamored with his use of luxurious textiles, deep moody colors and extravagant finishes. We finally made it to Marrakech last month and I could have walked around the hotel all day just admiring his work – so clearly Garcia’s signature style and yet so true to Mamounia’s Moorish heritage.
