Over the past 20 years, I’ve had multiple visits to magical Morocco, and often find myself joining hoards of tourists at a garden in the beautiful rose red city of Marrakesh.

The iconic Jardin Majorelle, more recently owned by legendary couturier Yves Saint Laurent, was created and planted by French artist Jacques Majorelle, who painted his Art Deco studio, the garden’s boundary walls, fountains and features an intense and vibrant shade of cobalt blue.
