Indagare Ambassador: Meryanne Loum-Martin

Meryanne Loum-Martin’s first trip to Morocco inspired her passion for interior design, and in 1985, she moved from Paris to Marrakech to transform the city’s run-down riads into elegant boutique hotels. Jnane Tamsna, one of her best-known masterpieces, showcases her sophisticated eye for design and combines traditional Moroccan splendor with contemporary flair. Here, Meryanne talks to Indagare about her favorite hotels, travel rituals and what’s on her bucket list.

From where do you draw your design inspiration?
I am inspired by a fusion of designs from Moorish countries: Northern India, Turkey, Morocco and West Africa.

What is your design process?
It is very fast and spontaneous. Space is analyzed, colors are envisioned, shapes are self-imposed. I am puzzled if the process is not immediate.
