Design Essentials To Bring Your Dream Marrakech-Inspired Yard To Life

Marrakech is equally celebrated for its atmosphere as it is for its distinctive design style, which is why we’re sharing some of the key features that can instantly transform your yard with Marrakech-inspired design.

Marrakech is brimming with lush colors, intricate architecture, and bustling excitement, so it’s no wonder the city has long been a sought-after travel destination. Often called “the red city,” Marrakech is filled with clay-covered buildings that line the streets and meet at the city’s center— a vibrant marketplace where you can find any number of items from spices and local cuisine to tapestries, textiles, and more.  

The city is nestled in a valley surrounded by a palm grove and the regal High Atlas Mountains, with the desert nearby. It’s a unique intersection of history and natural beauty that designers and travelers alike love. Here’s what your exterior design needs to transport you to your own private Moroccan-inspired resort.
