Far from the well-trod tourist trails of Morocco, one might find Tahla (above right) and fall irretrievably into her Moorish spell.

The new bedding range from Aura Lifestyle is boldly patterned with slate lattice opening up to reveal a stunning Sapphire sky, earthy softness dramatically contrasted against atmospheric shimmer.

The queen bed quilt cover is $209, tailored pillowcase $49.95 and the European pillow case is $59.95

Also new to Aura this month is Wide Stripe table linen ... big unapologetic black stripes, inherited from butcher’s aprons and French bistros.

The napery has been hand-crafted in beautiful soft, natural cotton fibres and is available in Black, Country Blue and Chilli.

The Tapas napkin is 25x25cm (in a pack of 6) and is $19.95. Napkins 50x50cm (in a pack of 4) are $24.95, table runners are from $29.95, aprons $29.95 and table cloths from $59.

The AURA range is available at Myer stores nationally or online at www.aurahome.com.au
