"Bleu Majorelle" is the name of a color, that you find in Morocco. A deep Mediterranean blue.
Morocco is known for this color. But you can find it in Cradock in the South African Karoo too. Bleu Majorelle develops. It is not a color, that just comes from the tin like this. Ok, it is a deep blue in the beginning, but it develops under the bright sun and the dry air of Morocco into something spectacular. It cannot be described.

I asked my brother again and again to drive up and down some of Cradock's streets. Thank you brother. It was worth it!
|This Cradock house is courageously colorful in true baby colors|
The same light and air conditions as you find them in Morocco exist in the Karoo.

The beautiful thing is, that all this is probably not intentional. It is simply art that creates itself over time.
