There is a shop on rue riad Zitoune Djedid that sells these wonderful fabrics that may be Berber or may be African. I'm not quite sure what they are for - they are too coarse for blankets and not coarse enough for rugs.
But the designs are striking.
The little painted doors can be put on a cupboard and the antique window grille put where you like.
Even the metal doors look tolerable with a splash of pink paint.
When I was growing up postboxes were always red. In America they are blue and inconspicuous. Yellow is noticeable - even in the shade.
