Morocco is one of my favorite places on earth, so when I learned of the new Vendome publication Inside Tangier: Houses and Gardens by Nicolò Castellini Baldissera I immediately placed an order. My Moroccan vacations have only taken me as far as Marrakech, but you can bet this gorgeous new tome has me itching to return and explore Tangier. The white-walled North African city has long attracted “the literary and artistic avant-garde of Europe and America,” and today’s many wonderfully stylish and eccentric inhabitants are no exception. Baldissera, an interior designer, enlisted the talents of fashion and interiors photographer Guido Taroni to capture the properties of Tangier’s finest collectors and creatives. How magical is Sarah Wheeler’s fabulous pink living room above? Explore more sneak peeks from the book below and if you like, order your own copy of Inside Tangier here.
