Sofa Transformation

Don't you just love a total transformation? We picked up a set of ottomans and a sofa belonging to a lovely customer who needed some serious updating in the style stakes. They picked out a lovely slinky and soft touch fabric and a floral fabric with a hint of metallic for their cushion and ottomans. So here are the working stages of the Sofa Transformation from a husk (frame) to stunning sofa and ottoman set by the Epiplo Aris team. Enjoy!

My Morocco Part 1: Ksar Char-Bagh, Marrakech

Once upon a time I dreamed about the pink city that is Marrakech with it's exotic vibe and interesting sounds, smells oozing from the Souks, Medina's (old town) and colourful Bazaars within. I've seriously wanted to take a little trip here to discover everything about this wonderful, mysterious & bustling city and basically get my hit of 'Arabian Nights' style architecture & fascinating stories. Well this is part 1, in the series that will become a hot spot collection of fabulous hotels in Morocco, starting with Kser Char-Bagh in Marrakech. I found this gem of a hotel on Mr & Mrs Smith when searching for boutique hotels... enjoy!
In a nutshell, there are 13 luxurious Harem suites (this place is definitely suited for couples), all with private gardens and terrace - you have to see the view of Atlas Mountains, it's simply breathtaking!

Must mention that the Charlotte Street Hotel does a kick-ass breakfast, one that i'll never forget on a cold winter morning. Also close by are some of the best restaurants and bars.
Best pick of restaurants: Ping Pong, Gaucho, Crazy Bear, Shochu Lounge (great cocktails too), Roka, Fino, Dim T and Koba - by far one of the best Korean restaurants in London.

Birds, Chinoiserie...beautiful stuff

Aren't these images just darn pretty?

The one below is from Style Court, it is a bit old, but still, the Chinoiserie style wallpaper just has that something spectacular. Aparently it was from an old issue of Elle Decoration and is one of De Gournay's fantastic hand painted works of art - i mean anything from wallpaper to fabrics and porcelain. I knew there was something vaguely familiar with this image - should have recognised the signature style from the website of course!

Sorry about the yucky black borders but the text goes skewiff if it's not landscape!

Also, loved this chair, isn't it stunning?
