We invite you to discover in the Balzac Paris newspaper the portrait of the two owners of the Riad, Cyrielle and Julien: Cyrielle and Julien, what is your story, why Marrakech? We both fell under the charms of Morocco in 2010, its landscapes and its light. Marrakech was as magical and his energy immediately fascinated us. After working for more than 10 years in the fashion world, as a model or behind the creative forces of the Eclaireur and the Ruby workshops, we were both looking for a more authentic life. Hosted by a quest for freedom, we naturally turned to Marrakech where we found refuge and inspiration. What is the story of the Secret Garden Riad? How did you transform it? We discovered this house dating from the end of the 16th century in the medina of Marrakech, 3 years ago. The Riad does not bear its name by chance ... His address whispers between initiates, like a secret that we want to preserve. To access it, you have to be in the confidence ... The ancients whispered the legend of the "secret garden" ... Two riads were built side by side, almost identically, in order to house the loves of a Rich Marrakchi. One of his women was his favorite. He dedicated this setting for her to hide the immense love he had for her. Today the state of mind is simple, the Riad is an "anti-modern" place and rich in history. A place of inspiration, exchanges and relaxation. We have juxtaposed the eras in order to better reveal them. Black and white prints and handicrafts give the tone. The furniture with simple and organic lines and the neat implementation of each object were defined in order to preserve the authenticity of the Riad Garden Secret, the mystery of its past and the artistic personality of its present. Your riad is a real haven of peace that inspires the sweetness of life and serenity ... What is your secret? Our riad was first of all our personal house, the secret is certainly the alchemy of our two personalities, both sober and very meticulous. The Riad Garden Secret is a confidential guest house, a showroom of our ideas but also a gallery, because we receive artists in residence. It is a place of life and experimentation. Music also has a large place. What are the decorative biases for this place? We advocate sincerity and simplicity through the choice of natural materials and without pretenses. We like to reconcile the elements of raw nature in a sophisticated environment with authentic materials and natural finishes, highlighted by a palette of colors studied and timeless. We have fun mixing vintage elements with a touch of exoticism. We also sometimes draw our own furniture and call on the know-how of artisans in order to realize it. Addresses to Marrakech to recommend to our community? The essential Mustafa Blaoui and his Ali Baba cave which is two minutes from the Riad. The Moroccans, for their organic and natural cosmetic products. The art of the bath, specializing in screen -printed soaps with donkey milk. The African souk behind the place Jemaa El Fnaa. Marrakshi Life and her timeless hand woven. Chabichic which offers pottery made by local craftsmen. Upcoming projects? We are always looking for new projects! We have opened a vegetarian restaurant, the pink rooftop, where we offer A gourmet and healthy cuisine from local organic farming. The opening of our Rigotang Creation studio, combining our passions for silver photography and interior design. We have just renovated a "DAR", a mansion where we have lived for a short time and which, according to legend, has been the boy's Boynière by Yves Saint Laurent. We are waiting for the project of our life, the arrival of our first baby. So for the moment we are very busy decorating your room! And to finish ... Marrakech or Paris? The two!
