Any designer/traveller/photographer/artist worth their salt has a soft-spot for Marrakech. Over the years artistic people have flocked to the city drawn like moths to a flame for its colours, scenery, landscapes and people. The city is a hive of inspiration and creativity.
So, it’s no wonder that Pinterest, the photo pin-board website has hundreds of boards where people have put up (or ‘pinned’) their favourite pictures of the city.
From hotels to fashion designers, travellers to musicians, there are photos to inspire even the most jaded traveller. Some of the best ones are those curated by interior designers, who naturally have a flair.
Here is just a handful of some of our favourites – and ones which we follow.
