Through its bow window overlooking the garden at the back, a soft light penetrates, filtered by the leaves of a secular plane tree. The beige of the walls was chosen to evoke the dunes. All the objects, paintings, carpets, linen and fabrics come from the African continent.
The bedspreads, designed by Katia, were made in Nairobi in a women's cooperative. Katia followed the manufacturing process from the dyeing of the threads in a cauldron to their weaving.
The thick wool carpet, the color of African earth, comes from the Atlas Mountains and was woven by Berber women. The curtain fabric was made by men on a traditional Moroccan loom in Essaouira and the cushion fabric was made in Saint-Louis-du-Sénégal.
The cotton percale sheets were hand-painted in Nairobi according to exclusive designs created by an English woman who has taught several families the technique of painting on fabric and guides them daily in the work she guarantees.
Thus, each object evokes a particular memory to the guests of La Maison Mermoz who will have the pleasure of sharing them with those who wish to do so.
In this junior-suite, the furniture was designed and realized, in a unique copy, for La Maison Mermoz by a cabinetmaker trained at the Ecole Boulle. Its rounded forms, rather contemporary, the quality of the woods used - rosewood, lemon and pear - and their exceptional workmanship give this room a certain luxury.
The bathroom where wood and marble dominate, the design of the sanitary facilities and the taps designed by Philippe Starck affirm the refinement of La Maison Mermoz.
The centerpiece of this room, which gave it its name, is an antique Syrian chest of drawers inlaid with mother-of-pearl, ivory and bone, accompanied by a throne-like armchair with its original tapestry of silk and gold threads on which to sit and read or watch television.
The headboard was made in Morocco using the moucharabieh technique (a finely chiseled and openworked wooden panel that allowed women to see without being seen by strangers in the house).
The bed linen is made of cotton percale decorated with Moroccan trimmings entirely handmade.
The paintings are from Moroccan painters, except for one executed on a Koranic board by a French painter, Marie Laurens-Caye, during her residence in Casablanca in the 2000s.
The leather carpet in the colors of the room is a detour of the famous Berber carpet Boucherouite (or Boucharouette); these carpets were originally saddle carpets used on dromedaries and made from scraps of fabric or old clothing.
Finally, the muted color of the walls was chosen to create a muffled, cosy and relaxing atmosphere, typical of the Orient and the land of a thousand and one nights.
The private terrace allows you to dream, read and escape while contemplating the courtyard planted with exotic species such as palm trees, hibiscus, citrus fruits, bougainvillea and jasmine.
The discreet but luxurious charm of this room gives it an intimate character that many guests appreciate.
This room can be transformed into a Twin if requested at the time of booking.
