Marrakesh transplant and blogger Maryam Montague shares her love of Moroccan architecture and decorating in her first book, Marrakesh By Design (Artisan Books, $29.95).

Montague created the blog My Marrakesh to chronicle her and her husband's efforts to build a home there. The book introduces readers to the architecture of Morocco and explains the historical, religious and practical forces that influenced its distinctive features. She takes readers inside homes, gardens, courtyards and other spaces, each with its own style, but all infused with Moroccan character.
