Villa Kadiri

So first of all, I don't post for two weeks. And then when I do, I bring to you over-the-top exotic opulence from a beautiful desert land. Something that will require you to relax, take a deep breath, empty your head of everything else to make space for some ├╝ber rich interiors, put on some soul stirring Moroccon music, and maybe wear your silk robe and those harem pants. I am all about creating the right mood today.



Presenting to you, the labour of love and indulgence from Morocco - Jaouad Kadiri and Priti Paul's home...or more apt, their palace. Working along with architect Stuart Church, Jaouad has created a home straight out of the tales of Arabian nights, with a fair dose of Indian mystique. Each nook and corner is full of rich colors and antiques sourced from the souks of Morocco and the bazaars of India. While everything put together gets a bit too much for me, there are elements and ideas from each room that inspire me.



Jaouad Kadiri and Priti Paul were in news recently as they hosted the Sex and The City 2 movie's star cast at their yet to be launched hotel. Their fairy tale wedding a few years back also generated a lot of interest.

L O V E L Y Let me wipe the drool on the keyboard :o

Are you into restaurants at all? I'm asking what besides the food (for e.g decor, ambience) plays a role in people choosing a certain restaurant and going back there? If you could help by giving your view, it'll be great :) The post is here:

Thank you for creating the mood.

Meander said...

I'm speechless, absolutely speechless and I think that very last photograph pretty much just sums it all up-BEAUTIFUL!

Sunil said...

Thanks for posting such gorgeous pictures. I do agree though that this is not a "livable" home. Its more like a museum or hotel that one could spend a day or two. The colors and variety of elements would drive me to madness!

Still, very beautiful to look at in person I am sure.

BollyInstyle said...

What stunning pictures! I LOVE your blog...I can spend way too many hours here. Thanks for all the inspiration.

Indian Bazaars said...

The flooring and the floor coverings are quite nice! Thanks for sharing!

Rahul Vaidya said...

Nice collection and very unique things. But how we could buy things like this? I searched it on Free Classified ads websites but didn't find any collection like this. Any suggestions??
