Going exotic the Moroccan way!

Anything bright and bold has always grabbed my attention, be it a pair of funky yellow stilettos or  a hot pink duvet cover, they all go straight to my “Must have list”. Naturally, Moroccan designs with their bright/rich wall paint colors, ethnic patterns, complex fabrics and mosaics entice me quite a lot!

If you have wanted to give your crib an exotic feel, the unusual elements that make up the Moroccan style could do the trick. Here are a few tips:-

With it’s sublime peachy hues, upholstered cocktail table complimented with use of brass accessories and bits of wooden furniture this room gets as Moroccan as it could. I think they got it just right!

The right kind of lighting is a key aspect to any interior, more so for the Moroccan style. I love how Liza Bruce used light in this guest bedroom. The eight-pointed lampshades and the hand-crafted doors add to the exotic feel here.

Ooh la la! The mosaic tiles, rich colored cemented shelves, ceramic utensils, they all blend right in. (If only I knew where I could find those ceramics! *sigh*)

What can I say? It’s purple, it’s got great texture, they have mixed different elements in the perfect manner and I love it. Takeaway here is: Mix metals/wood/tiles to get the Moroccan look.

Morocco has been culturally influenced by Arabic nations for the most part but has traces of Spanish culture as well. Their interiors are no exception to it, the colors used are largely inspired by the deep blue seas and the tropics (imagine deep blues and greens) or colors of the desert like gold, earthy tones, orange are chosen.

Love the light fittings used here.

Now that’s one unique living room, they’ve pattern-stenciled the walls to get the Moroccan effect. Way to go!

As always I am looking forward to hearing from you all. Till then.. Keep Dreaming! 🙂
