La maison d'Yves Saint Laurent - Jardin Majorelle






Hi Guys!

This is the last but not least post of my trip to Marrakesh, the lovely Yves Saint Laurent's home.
 The house is situated outside the Medine and it can be a bit difficult to find.
 The external walls are painted in stunning blue and yellow and it has a very well planned and amazing garden. It was made in the 1920s by the French painter Jacques Majorelle, many of the built features were painted in a dark blue ('Majorelle Blue'),  After years of neglect, the garden was then taken over and restored by the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. He donated the gardens to Marrakesh. Yves has a phallic pink memorial in the gardens

Ultimo post de Marrakech, fuimos a visitar la casa de Yves Saint Laurent!! Esta lejos de la medina y no era facil de encontrar, en calles donde nunca pensarias encontrarte un mini paraiso.
  Es una casa muy llamativa con paredes en azul electrico y amarillo y jardines espectaculares, sobretodo los cactus gigantes. La casa fue contruida por el pintor Jacques Majorelle en 1920. De aqui viene el nombre del color 'azul Majorelle'.






Huge cactus!

Electric blue house

Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé discovered the Jardin Majorelle in 1966, during their first stay in Marrakech.
“We quickly became very familiar with this garden, and went there every day. It was open to the public yet almost empty. We were seduced by this oasis where colours used by Matisse were mixed with those of nature. » … « And when we heard that the garden was to be sold and replaced by a hotel, we did everything we could to stop that project from happening. This is how we eventually became owners of the garden and of the villa. And we have brought life back to the garden through the years.”
Pierre Bergé  Yves Saint Laurent, “Une passion marocaine”
Éditions de la Martinière, 2010
