Moroccan design is characterized with complex carving, arch windows and doors, exquisite colored textile and unique ethnic prints. So if you’re tired with the interior overloaded with pink-golden mix, clumsy patterns and huge amount of tasteless accessories, think about Moroccan style.

  • Avoid too vibrant colors. Choose one color as the accent – this will make the interior modern
  • Find your own Moroccan print you like most of all. And remember: if a thing has a black and white print, this doesn’t mean that it is a Moroccan decor element
  • Lighting is a key element for bringing the whole interior together. Table lamps and craved candle holders make decor integral and very Moroccan without much money
  • Think about hand-made elements: search the Internet for websites offering tips about how to make this of that thing with your own hands
  • Visit Ebay, Etsy, flea markets and second-hands to find unique things you can transform without large investments
  • Decorate room by room, work over one room at a time. Otherwise you risk to buy a bunch of elements that don’t match at all. So be slow and patient

Great solution for your Moroccan interior will be a part of the wall of flooring embellished with tiles or mosaics with ethnic prints. You can even find furniture covered with mosaics.

Better keep the walls in neutral colors – white/rye/beige/sandy tones. The abovementioned bright tiles will look great against the neural background. Another original characteristic of this style is a wall finishing with a plaster effect. Make the walls rougher and more uneven and this will bring texture and character to your interior.

Woven tapestries on the walls are another element of Moroccan interior. They create truly authentic atmosphere. Large mirror also looks great on the wall.

As we said above, ligthing is very important for Moroccan style. And not only because it brings special atmosphere – craved shades cast amazing patters around. Choose lamps that can be hung on different levels. You can use colored glass shades or keep them in a single simple tone.
