Just imagine how beautiful color film would have made Casablanca with its Moroccan setting. I became enthralled by Morocco’s charm upon visiting Disney’s World Showcase of Morocco at Epcot. Lame, I know. But their take on the African country’s architecture and cuisine is oddly accurate! Granted I’ve yet to visit Morocco or any other Mediterranean country for that matter, but I assure you it is definitely on my bucket list. My dream house would be decorated with a Moroccan theme with an emphasis on vibrant colors and intricate patterns anchored by beige walls and woods. Moroccan style focuses on mosaics and geometrical patterns, colors like coral and yellow and turquoise, arches and domes, courtyards and gardens, what’s not to love?
