Noteworthy Places: Riad Yasmine

    “Enter the crossed threshold and escape the heat and vibrancy of Marrakech. Let yourself be guided by the cool air corridor leading you to the traditional patio. You will be enveloped by its bright and quiet atmosphere where only the chirping of birds comes to disturb the silence. Throughout your stay in the red city, the Riad Yasmine will be your safe haven of peace, a timeless nest preserved from the bustle of the Medina.”

    When I think of Marrakech I think of colorful streets packed full of local stalls selling Moroccan style art and rugs. We actually have this MOROCCAN STYLE rug in our apartment because I wanted something fun, but still in keeping with my love for soft neutrals. Marrakesh is home to many beautiful boutique hotels, but what I love about this Riad, in particular, is its courtyard. There are so many good spots to post up with a good book and a drink in hand. Then, spend your evenings on the rooftop enjoying the sunset and the local Moroccan cuisine. Plus, I already know a few of the essential items I would pack; this DRESS, these EARRINGS, and this TOTE BAG!
