Moroccan Table

Lately we have been on a home decor kick – which is all good and fun except that we lack  an actual house. Well we do have a home, but it’s my old condo from when I was living alone, which is now overflowing with both our stuff.That hasn’t stopped us from shopping for furniture, and in the last month we’ve had two major pieces purchased and scheduled for delivery for semi-permanent storage at my mom’s house, to be kept until we move into a bigger place. Which could be years away. Geez I pray I never have a child like me.

Anyway it’s never fun buying things that you can’t use or see, so I was happy when this weekend we found a beautiful little Moroccan table that we could bring back to the apartment for immediate use and enjoyment. I thought this piece was lovely – walnut wood with mother of pearl and bone inlay. I adore Moroccan design and would really love to visit Morocco one day.

Tangier Table

I have a few friends who are absolutely obsessed with home decor which I never really understood until recently. Whenever I pass by this little table it just makes me smile, I love it that much!

I’d love to hear about some of your favorite pieces. Do share!

    This is beautiful! I am currently in the process of renovating my living room and I am constantly looking for inspirations. Would you be able to share where you bought this lovely piece?

    That table is gorgeous! Moroccan, but still manages to feel modern.

    I love home decor and interior design. I feel like it goes hand in hand with fashion. It's hard to pick just one favorite item in our home, but at the moment it would have to be this 6 foot oil painting we found on Craig's List. It still has the tag from hanging in the Corocoran Gallery in DC!

    Pretty and fun! A favorite piece of mine is a sunburst mirror from Horchow – it really lights up the room!

    That's a gorgeous table – I can see why it makes you smile! I designed my coffee table and bookshelves and my Dad built them for me, then I painted them. 😉

    I was the same about decor–it just wasn't interesting to me…until one day it was. Now I try to block it out a bit so I can concentrate on my wardrobe, but I can always be persuaded to buy something for my house!

    I love home decor! You should check out one kings lane if you haven't already. My favorite home decor item is a lamp from Phoebe Howard.

    OMG. I've been obsessing with the Alameda Flea Market recently since I saw this spectacular bird card for $125. I also live in a highrise apt and have ZERO space. SIGH. But I'm also too lazy to look and furnish a new house.

    Beautiful table! The next time you are in Hawaii you should check out Shangri La…the most spectacular home decorated in Islamic/Moroccan style that was once the home of the billionaries Doris Duke.

    I just got back from a vacation to Hawaii last week as was finally able to see this place. Very inspirational!

    this tiny table looks absolutely wonderful! I know how you feel about decorating since I have my own house and we are overhauling it little by little.
    I also wanted to thank you for the comment you've left in my blog 🙂

    Beautiful table, Kat! My fav piece in my house has to be my coffee table too. It's huge and oh, my.. heavy! Looks so old but sturdy. The wood is thick and it comes with 4 black metal wheels. We nicknamed it The Stage for the size 😉

    Great find!
