Simple Moroccan tribal carpets look exotic yet practical and durable in landscape designer Miranda Brooks‘ child-friendly townhouse, featured in the January 2013 issue of Vogue. Brooks hand-picked the carpets herself during a working trip to Morocco. These carpets feel like old familiar friends to us, warm and welcoming with a timeless style. Her collection of Beni Ourain tribe carpets with looped pile and the red Beni Mitr tribe carpets mix well with her bright yet subtle color palette. Emerald green, robin’s egg blue pale lemon balance nicely against the creamy ivory Beni Ourain carpets, while the vivid red Beni Mitr carpets are the absolute perfect choice for the children’s rooms and the bathing room, as they are nearly indestructible…and look good with strong hues of yellow, blue, or high contrast black and white.
