49 Ways To Bring Moroccan Flavor To Your Interiors

ways to bring moroccan flavor to your interiors cover

I’d like to continue with exotic interior decor, and today it’s all about Morocco. Moroccan architecture and interior design express the country’s diverse history through detail, texture and geometry. Rich, luxurious and exotic, the style has bold colors and shapes that make it a favorite of many interior designers and can be seen in many modern homes.

Architectural Details

Traditional Moroccan architecture is shaped by centuries of cultural and religious influences. Beautiful archways and curved doorways in the keyhole design are some of the style’s most recognizable elements, they can be applied not only to Moroccan or gypsy interiors but also to modern ones – just add a styled niche seating as a reading nook to get an exotic flavor.

Bold Colors

Morocco is an African country, it’s bold and exotic and so are its shades: brilliant reds, oranges, greens and blues dominate the interiors, with a neutral or color-washed background. Turquoise and purple are the perhaps the most beloved colors for Moroccans, so have a look at them.

Carved And Upholstered Furniture

Delicately carved furniture and upholstered pieces are staples of Moroccan interiors. Carved seat bases, chests, coffee tables and side tables often contrast with h couches, poufs or floor cushions in a single room. Moroccan leather poufs have become a trend for many interiors, not only exotic ones.

Textiles And Rugs

Sometimes rugs and fabrics are right what make the whole space, and this is true about Moroccan ones. Their designs focused on abstract and geometric patterns with colorful and neutral palettes. Moroccan fabrics with various patterns and colors can be used and layered as room dividers, draperies or furniture protectors.

Lanterns And Metalwork

Moroccan lanterns are one the most recognizable parts of this design style. Intricately made from metals such as brass or copper, these pieces cast amazing shadows on their surroundings when hung from the ceiling.

Moroccan metalwork is used as beautiful and intricate decorative accessories for the home. Metal mirrors, vases, lanterns, kettles and trays are just a few of the traditionally hand-crafted metal items that adorn Moroccan interiors.
