Maison Brummell Majorelle, A Boutique Hotel, Marrakesh, Morocco

Jardin Majorelle conceived as a serene sanctuary and botanical ‘laboratory’ by French painter Jacques Majorelle in the early 1920s, in Marrakesh, Morocco

in the 1980s Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé purchased and restored the property including Majorelle’s home and painting atelier

Now home to the Musée Berbère, a courtyard café, a chic boutique, and boutique hotel 8-room - Maison Brummell Majorell by Austrian hotelier Christian Schallert, working in collaboration with Moroccan architect Amine Abouraoui. They drew inspiration from the Cubist Art Deco architecture of Musée Berbère next door, which French architect Paul Sinoir built in the 1930s to house Majorelle’s atelier, combining Moorish and Modernist elements into a gem of a building that harmoniously blends in with the neighborhood, mixing hand-crafted finishes with design classics, artisanal pieces and contemporary artworks in the spirit of Majorelle and Yves Saint Laurent’s eclectic sense of style Color-washed in an earthy terracotta hue, the hotel’s exterior is a playful counterpoint to Jardin Majorelle’s buildings.
