Tea Party!

Spring is here! Flowers are blooming. The weather is warming up, which means... it is time for a nice afternoon gathering with friends and family! I love holding mini parties in my backyard, chilling with soothing tea in hands. 

My favorite house accessories to show off have to be my tea glasses and the silver teapot. They just get so many compliments as they are being passed around among my friends.

Three Creative Ways To Use Your Moroccan Rug

So you bought a brand new Casablanca Market rug and you don’t know exactly what to do with it. You can start out by putting it in your bedroom, child room, living room or mounting it on a wall in your house. For those of us who have a bit of a harder time figuring out what to do with your new beauty, this is a life hack:

Hack number 1: Take it to the Bed… room! Follow  this handy guide to adjust your rug so it enhances your space and makes it look more spacious and chic!

Hack number 2: Take it to park! Rag rugs are our favorite ones for this! The colorful tones and the contrast of the soft rugs versus the grass is perfect! You can even flip it the other way around for a smooth and cushiony lounge. Pair them with some contrasting poufs, bring your favorite book, a pair of sunnies and maybe even a tea set for your perfect day at the park!

Hack number 3: Frame it! That’s right, we said frame it! Our rugs are mostly one of a kind, so why not show them off? Don’t forget, these pieces are handmade by artisans who follow traditions that are hundreds of years old and are still happening. Every piece tells a story, which is  why we encourage you to shop artisanal. Not because it’s trendy but because it’s genuine, like you. So get your set of power tools and DIY your own frame or simply nail it to the wall (in the negative spaces of the rug to avoid damage) and you’re set for a beautiful and classic piece of versatile decor.


With all the love,
