    Not all of us can rest our heads on a woven berber nestled deep in the lap of a colorful, chic Moroccan paradise that's been a preferred vacation spot and source of inspiration for rock stars and fashion designers alike. Yes, even though she's worked hard to create her own little slice of well-decorated heaven in Marrakech — building her own home, the Peacock Pavilions boutique hotel, and her unconscionably addictive design blog My Marrakesh — Maryam Montague should be counted as one of the lucky ones.

    Thankfully, this expert in the distinct local blend of design, architecture, décor, and lifestyle —an aesthetic whose fan base includes everyone from the Rolling Stones to Yves Saint Laurent — isn't above sharing her good fortune.
