Introduction by Umberto Pasti.
A white-walled city perched between Morocco and Europe, Tangier was long a haven for the literary and artistic avant-garde—and black sheep—of Europe and America. Now a new generation of residents are blending color, pattern, and taste to create an interior aesthetic all their own. Inside Tangier explores a selection of these exceptional properties and their eccentric inhabitants—from antiques dealer and collector Gordon Watson and interior designer Frank de Biasi to the late fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and antiques dealer Christopher Gibbs—providing rare insights into the sometimes bohemian, sometimes extravagant, but always stylish “Tangerine” lifestyle.
"Just as southern Spain can be seen across the Strait of Gibraltar, so, for all their faded zellige tiles, Moorish arches, moucharaby screens and dappled raids, the patinated pleasure pads of expats featured in Inside Tangier: Houses & Gardens are shot through with a distinctively European love of the exotic; the droll name of interior decorator Gavin Houghton’s four-storey house, La Di Dar, encapsulates the ‘North Africa meets knowing urbanity’ very well."
