If you can, go in the spring. The bougainvillea will be blooming, and you'll be right in that sweet spot to catch sun on a terrace while avoiding sweaty crowds.
The magic is in the mix. One of our goals with Broaden is to inspire you to create a home that is full of meaning by including pieces from other cultures and times to create a layered, storied interior. None of us exists in one time and one place only; we are people with histories and our whole lives are journeys of becoming. What if our homes could truly reflect that?
The ancient city of Fes is a feast for the senses. Inside the Blue Gate, market stalls stretch in a continuous riot along the cobbled streets. Mountains of fresh produce give way to carts full of more varieties of olives than you can count on your fingers. You pass through clouds of chamomile, the tease of freshly baked bread, and the sudden, acrid scent of animals. As the street slopes downward, shop owners hawk their wares in one language, and then in another. It is laughably easy to get lost in the tangled web of alleyways. It is impossible not to be enchanted.
