The first thing that should be highlighted in the Moroccan interior is the color scheme. The desert had a great influence on this style, so all the shades associated with sand and sun will prevail in the interior. Yellow, red, ocher, terracotta, all shades of brown – the interior will turn out to be very warm and rich. This “desert” palette can be diluted with blue, purple, often pink.
A very important role in the Moroccan interior is played by all kinds of arches, pointed, high. Arches can be used when decorating niches on walls, door and window openings, headboards, in general, wherever it is appropriate.
The Moroccan interior is also full of mosaics and ceramic tiles. In hot climates, a tiled floor is the ideal solution, it helps to get the much-desired coolness. We wrote about Moroccan ornament as a popular pattern. This is a very striking detail and one of the most recognizable decor techniques..
Forged lamps are also a striking detail of the Moroccan style, like vases, jugs, and ceramic dishes. Often, only these details are enough to give the interior an oriental sophistication and luxury..
There are always many textile elements in the Moroccan interior. Curtains that hide the room from the scorching sun, bright various pillows, woven rugs, bedspreads – all this makes the room more comfortable, homely.
A vivid example of how even a tiny and quite modern kitchen can be given a touch of Moroccan style. Just a mosaic kitchen apron with an arched niche for little things – and how the picture of the room has changed! And even modern steel household appliances do not spoil the impression of oriental flavor.
Walls in Moroccan interiors are usually plastered and painted in authentic colors. The furniture is traditionally wooden, carved, forged elements are possible, for example, openwork legs for armchairs and chairs. It all looks rich, together with textiles, in the style of the fairy tales “Thousand and One Nights” by Scheherazade.
The ceiling in Moroccan interiors can be decorated with wooden beams that complement the ethnic design trends well. Even in the kitchen, a low cozy sofa with pillows will be appropriate, and in the living room the coffee table must be very low so that you can just sit behind it on the floor.
A Moroccan-style bathroom is an abundance of colorful mosaics and decor, well-chosen little things, for example, soap dishes and original plumbing. Competently placed lighting should make the room visually large, light, add extra shine to the mosaic finish.
Lush and bright Moroccan style is perfect for decorating open spaces – verandas, terraces, gazebos. If you do not want to transfer oriental chic to living quarters, this solution will be optimal, allowing you to experiment with design. Don’t forget about indoor plants, because they perfectly complement the vibrant and colorful style of exotic Morocco..
