Twenty-five craftsmen spent two years resuscitating a 600-year-old residence in the ancient medina of Fez, Morocco, a painstaking labor of love led by husband and wife Iraqi architect Alaa Said and Norwegian graphic designer Kate Kvalvik. The result: The Dar Seffarine guesthouse, a seven-room showpiece of Moorish architecture. A careful edit of contemporary additions, like clean white walls, serve to accentuate the structure’s original glory of zellij (mosaic tile) floors, cedar ceilings, and soaring columns. Rooms ring a central courtyard, open to the sky (as pictured) and accessible by towering 12-foot-tall carved doors. A rooftop terrace offers panoramic views of the ancient pedestrian city. There, I would wear this Sass & Bide leather breast plate, a saucy complement to the layered life of the heritage hotel.
