Hats in the Hall



You need a selection of hats in Marrakech - the sun would burn the top of your head.
Here an impressive collection belonging to an elegant friend of ours.
Note the pointy toed slippers below.



A staircase decorated with that Majorelle blue and lanterns.



And light falling on the upstairs landing.

Love the white hats framed by those wonderful tiles.

That staircase is nice, too!

A most elegant friend indeed. The intense colours of Marrakesh are always a delight.

Love that staircase. With each post I visit I'm wondering if it will be the last...Hope you have a big stockpile of photos to keep going for quite a while!

Those ARE elegant looking hats....and the stairway is beautiful. I love those blue-painted niches in the wall and the railing painted to match too.

Elizabeth, I absolutely love the shot of the hats in the hall. I wonder if the world would be a different place if people had to wear beautiful hats like that all the time? Just make people slow down a bit before they rush out the door ..... Roxanne

Pointy toes slippers..woo sexy :)
I notice that Moroccons love lots of blue and everything is so colourful. Fabulous as usual, hugs always :)

Wonderful how your shots capture the essence of the sun, the light, and those blues I love so much!!!

Those hats remind me of a place we went to in Essaouira, forgot the name of it now, it has a shop (with hats!), a restaurant, and bar on the top floor with live music.

These hats are elegant. In my head I picture somebody walking with a stick and such a hat nodding friendly to passersby
