Urban Abstract



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.

Elizabeth, these are all very nice photos (as always). There is something about the texture and dustiness of the last one that I like the most.

Love the detail on these. I'm sitting in a completely white room and those black and white patterns would really
fit as a wall hanging or curtains!

I love these shots - especially the black door with the pink paint. Always a pleasure to come to your spot.

Great photos - I agree, these would make brilliant wall hangings.

Wall hangings or window coverings would be my bet too!

Love the black and white patterns. And the door which I would want to buy immediately. The mail box is so cute. Now, ours in USA are red, white and blue.

The fabrics? They are for looking at and framing and hanging on the walls.

I'd like both those painted doors and the Lettres box please!

I think I could get lost looking at all the various designs...
