This lovely coffee table book showcases the magical design that is particular to Morocco, with dozens of lavish photos of sumptuous interiors, and text describing the properties and their owners/designers. Though it is possible to achieve a lot in Moroccan design quite cheaply, the kind of properties here are 'living in Morocco for the super-rich': the fact that Yves St Laurent's pad is among them is not atypical.

3.0 out of 5 stars The dangers of judging a book by the cover 27 Jan 2004
By Mai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is certainly what I did when I purchased this book. I expected a volume full of palaces, mosques, markets and average folk's homes (or at least native Moroccans!). What I found was a book of lavish hotels and rich foreigners' mansions. They are by and large interesting rich foreigners, but I was still disappointed in that what is portrayed in this book is not "living" in Morocco. It's "being wealthy" in Morocco. There is nothing penetrating about this book, but it is nice eye-candy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty pictures 13 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Another one those wonderful coffee table book by Taschen publication. This book has a broader variety of homes like from the exclusive Aman hotel (Amanjena) to a humble farmer's house. It's not a book about how to live in Morocco nor about going remodeling or building a home in Morocco. It shows you what some foreigners and locals have done to their home.
Book is cheaper than the previous Taschen book "Moroccan style".

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifull Morocco 13 Feb 2007
By Mr. Lawrence Powderly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent book for anyone interested in interior design or Morocco.

Full of beautifull photos of guest houses and private homes in Morocco. The book is presented beautifully and would make a great present for someone special or even as a gift to yourself.

The pictures are beautiful! I purchased this for a friend who emigrated here from Morroco and it was exciting for him to see his native country in such beautiful photos.
