Modern Morroco


Morocco Modern World Design S.
by Herbert Ypma
Synopsis
A country of extremes, Morocco is at once ultra-modern yet deeply traditional. This is illustrated by the decorative arts in modern Morocco. Drawing inspiration from the fine artisan traditions of the past, the designers working in Morocco today have their own individual styles. This title combines a history of design and architecture in Morocco with an insight into the most contemporary trends.

Review by Jody de Falbe from London

The colours, shapes and textures of Morocco are sumptously displayed in this book. As an interior designer, I found the book both inspirational and stunningly useful. The close-up detailing of mouchearabieh screens plasterwork, tiling, weaving, zeligs, doorframes, furniture, flowers, etc show things that other books on Morocco just hint at - and force you to squint at! If you need to create a Moroccan interior FAST, and don`t have the time to go to Morocco, Ypma`s book is a lifesaver. You can even mix the paint colours using the pictures as reference. Cheers Herbert! The mint tea`s on me!

I love Morocco! Morocco is an amalgam of diverse influences from Europe, Africa, the Orient, as well as the Middle East, and it's commodities are an eclectic reflection of this. I like Moroccan arts and crafts and how they decorate home it's like a signature from the exotic world. You can enjoy seeing it by buying Morocco property or even you can transform your home in you country into a palace with Morocco interior design services.
