    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.
