In the center of the first floor of this Marrakech, Morocco, mansion is a beautiful courtyard. Black-and-white checkered tile is used as the patio, while a swimming pool is surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs. Trees and other plantings bring a lushness to the space.
This Mediterranean dining room balances big, heavy pieces in dark colors, like the china cabinet, with lighter elements like the white walls and glass chandelier. Touches like the zebra head and striped rug give the room a global note.
