Vibrant colours of streetlife in Marrakesh

Marrakesh holds a unique aesthetic – textures, patterns, shapes and shades – all tell tales of a myriad of influences on an ancient cultural heritage.

Dazzlingly vibrant hues are offset by soft pastel tones, which draw from the earthy tinges of natures inspiring colour palette. The crumbling clay walls of the old medina change from a light rose pink to a deep saffron red under the glow of vivid orange sunsets, while brilliant botanical greens, mellow turmeric yellows and bold cobalt blues pop from the finer details found in awe-inspiring architecture, rich artisanal traditions and subtly spiced cuisine.
