Pomegranates over flow with their joyous ruby-like seeds in the Draa valley.

The copper workers in the medina of Fez at Place Seffarine.

Terracotta tagines: the best way to cook vegetables and chicken.

Dar Ahlam: the most beautiful, peaceful and enchanting hotel in Morocco.

The Majorelle gardens outside Marrakech are a feast of colours like these tiles.

Arabesques in the Bahia Palace in Marrakech. I could go back every day and find a new pattern.

The tanneries of Fez are part of the city's soul.

Once you see the pattern of the Mashrabiya Trellis, you start to see it everywhere.

Elaborate doorways and handles in Marrakech.

Lanterns create patterns at night on the terraces.

Pierced brass metalwork - a skill handed down from the Sephardic Jews.

I love this view of the billowing curtains at Dar Ahlam.

The tiles at the Saadian Tombs in Marrakech offer a dazzling colourful geometry.

Pierced, ornate and symmetrical patterns I find endlessly fascinating.
