Majorelle Gardens - Marrakech

The boy and I have just come back from Marrakech where we managed to catch some rays and visit the Majorelle Gardens in the New Town owned by Yves Saint Laurent who restored the gardens after the death of artist Jacques Majorelle and donated them to the city of Mrrakech.

The gardens themselves are beautiful and feature an awful lot of Majorelle Blue, a colour copywritten by the artist. The gardens also house a memorial to the late YSL as well as an exhibition of YSL's Season's Greetings posters all of which feature the word 'Love' and the year they were created. I feel in love with these posters and have made it my life mission to own at least one.
