BlackBook: Marrakech

At Riad Meriem, New York-based interior designer Thomas Hays shows his orientalist leanings in the décor of his five-suite riad hotel with handcrafted Moroccan lamps and mirrors, antique Indian bronze basins in the bathrooms, and a palette unique to each room-deep shots of red and purple in the Red Suite, intense green in the Matisse. The connoisseurs among you will appreciate the rare textiles (such as 19th-century Indonesian silks and Uzbek ikats) mixed with contemporary paintings by American artist Laurence Rassin.
