Pink & Green at El Fenn in Marrakech

El Fenn Marrakech

If you are color-obsessed you will love El Fenn in Marrakech. The hotel was originally a private riad converted into a hotel by Vanessa Branson and Howell James in 2004. It was recently revamped by general manager Willem Smit who oversaw the two-year update which was unveiled in 2014. The hotel features 28 color-saturated rooms. One thread throughout several spaces are the colors pink and green with gorgeous examples of using the preppy color combo in very fresh ways. In the bedroom above a more sophisticated, dustier take on pink is on display on plaster walls and a faded, striped carpet. Paired with contemporary art, a sculptural bed, and carved moldings it is an example of how pink isn’t just a color for little girls.

This room features a brighter, girlier take on pink. The look is more playful, with tone on tone design thanks to a pink velvet sofa and pink lighting. A gold mantle for the fireplace and polka dot arm chairs inject some additional levity and fun to the room.

Pink and green has always been a preppy color combo, but this room feels a little cooler and more exotic. Accessories like a Moroccan tea table in brass and a ornate mirror add some exotic flair, the green plaster walls provide and intense backdrop, and pops of hot pink with the carpet, chair and throw keep the mood light.

Two vintage green lamps and green matting around the art injects some zing into a soothing space.
