    Default A house in Morocco

    A traditional house in Fez, built around a tiled courtyard, offers 6,500 square feet of refurbished space ideal for use as a guesthouse.

    All you've got to say is Morocco and I'm there. I'd have to redo all of the bedrooms, but I adore that fountain.

    I wonder why the 6500 sq feet are ideal as a guest house and not a primary residence? Maybe you'd get the urge to hang yourself in the hideous drapings or suffer a seizure, because of the tile pattern, if you had to live there full time?

    Do Moroccans ever, EVER get tired of decorating like Moroccans? So played out. So 2006. UGH.

    It probably isn't even owned by Moroccans. Usually when one of these things is featured in some mag it's decorated by someone doing the place up as they feel a Moroccan house should look.

    I'd redo the interior, but I do love the courtyard idea.

    not my taste, but i do admire the detail of the tile work.

    Hate Moroccan style architecture - a tall column with no windows to the outside. Everything faces the inner, tubular, courtyard and fountain. Tiny rooms.

    Nice colors and tiles, but I hate these houses.

    I like the layout and the structure. Take your hideous shit with you and give me the keys.
