At home in Tangier with Jamie Creel and Marco Scarani


World travelers, collectors and sophisticated sellers, Jamie Creel and Marco Scarani, the duo behind the chic design destination NYC Creel and Gow, they were immediately struck by Tangier, a magical North African port city that has seduced generations of writers, artists and designers. After years of visiting friend and world-renowned interior designer Charles Sevigny at his historic Moroccan home of Dar Zero, they bought a house with a unique arrangement where Charles stays for his life – he passed away last year at 101. Please join me and Susanna for a special a visit with Jamie and Marco to their stylish home of Tangerine.

At one of the highest points in Casbach, the historic center of Tangier, Dar Zero occupies a unique place in the history of the city. In addition to the 16th-century York Castle Gate, Charles and his partner Yves Vidal, creative director of Knoll International, owned and restored it in the 1960s.

Another shot shows them surrounding the Knoll Saarinen table in the breakfast area.

By adding a neighboring house, Marco created a cozy new room downstairs by integrating Moroccan finds and textiles primarily from friends Lisa Fine.

They recently added a garden room behind, open to the roof, for the possibility of outdoor entertainment during the often windy evenings.

Marko collaborated with local craftsmen to achieve an imperceptible transition between the old and the new. You can also see Dar Zero in Nicolo Castellini Baldisserahe is a wonderful tom Inside Tangier.

Most of Dar Zero reflects the aesthetic sensibilities found in the duo at New York’s Creel and Gow store, which we are proud to have as a video sponsor.
