MOROCCAN SHADES OF BLUE - CHEFCHAOUEN!

Photos by Coco of COCOCOZY's sister DS!

Mom and sis DS just got back from Morocco today.  They are now in Paris.  Oh such is the life. Right?

Anyhooo...ever since my older sister DS has been with iPhone (for the last 3 years), she has transformed from a girl who never took one picture in her life into woman who is acting like an amateur photojournalist of sorts.  Her real job has nothing to do with photography...DS is a partner at a law firm...but I've got to give it to Steve Jobs and those peeps at Apple...through the iPhone, they managed to take her from passive observer to active photographer when she is traveling!

Thankfully DS has started to snap photos because even though I haven't taken a real vacation in a few years due to the launching of the COCOCOZY home furnishing collection, I've gotten to see some pretty interesting places through the lens of DS's iPhone!

Just earlier this week, sis DS and Mom were in Chefchaouen or Chaouen Morocco...a city in the northwest of the country that is all awash in blue.  The city was founded as a Moorish fort in the 1400s.  Today its blue walls, buildings and houses make it a mecca for tourists.

Anyhooo...thanks to DS...here are some views of a blue city in Morocco...Chefchaouen!

I love the stonework on the ground in this city square! (above)

What do you think of sis DS's photography and this blue Moroccan city?  Are you traveling any place fantastic this summer?

Happy Friday!

  5. So beautiful! It's so interesting (to me, at least) to see the same motifs in the architecture as I see in their fabrics. Amazing. I want to go!!!!

  6. Hi Coco,

    Your sis took fantastic photos. Now that she has been to the blue city she has to go to Lac Rose! Btw wondering, does your sister like the tv show Suits? I love it, actually loved it more last season, better dialogue, but it's still good this season. If she hasn't seen it she should check it out, apparently all the clothes are by Tom Ford.

  10. I have been following you for a few months. Love your design ideas. Love your blog. And, as a native Californian, now living in Texas, love all references of 'home'. We travel a lot & when I saw Chefchaouen, I knew I had to comment. One of the most unique & beautiful places I have ever seen!
    Hope you get to take some time off to resume seeing the world! Too much to see & way too little time to see it all!
