When New York art dealer Dorothea McKenna Elkon first purchased this 18th century riad in Essaouira, Morocco, it was crumbling and in total disrepair. And so began its renovation and the transformation, with arched doorways, earthy colors, vaulted ceilings and sunlit rooms, is simply glorious! Swoon . . .

I was in Essaouira and it’s a beautiful small fisher town! We lived there in a very modest hotel… You pics are beautiful!!!
Breathtaking! I’ve always loved Moroccan architecture, so inspiring and beautiful.
So beautiful! I’ve been in Essaouira this summer, it’s incredible. though it would have been nice if the architect had picked up more of the blue-white-colours that Essaouira is all about.
Gorgeous, id love to visit morroco and stay in a place like this.
Such a gorgeous Morrocan house! The colors, structures and the design is superb.
Love to see the intricate carvings all over the house. A unique Morrocan style. Great!
