Use colour to your advantage
Colours like terracotta and dark brown are perfect for creating a Moroccan vibe with dark woods, like polished Mahogany being a staple of Moroccan interior design. Room separators and shutter windows are a perfect way to add a touch of elegance, and the interesting patterns often carved on or into furniture can provide a unique talking point for a room. Vibrancy is also a key element of Moroccan design, with many rooms featuring ornate decoration on both walls and ceilings, from mosaics to painted Zellige tiles. Combining a sunny yellow colour with a darker hue creates a brilliant earthy feeling, and bright colours complement dark woods excellently.
Textures such as grained wood will give a great rustic feeling to a room, and you will usually find that a brightly painted Sisal rug in a zigzag or trellis pattern will add a splash of eccentricity to
a room, as colours that would normally seem out of place in a normal interior can really mix well with the exciting and diverse style of Morocco. The beauty of this is that there is no right or wrong way to decorate in a Moroccan style. If you can’t find a rug you like, why not make your own Moroccan-style sisal carpet for a unique finish?
Don’t be afraid to make your mark with a bold piece of furniture or artwork. Four-poster beds are a fantastic way to do this, and complete with some silk curtains, will give a brilliantly authentic Moroccan feeling to a bedroom.
Our dark wood wardrobes are the perfect base for a Moroccan interior, as the dark wood will complement any bright pieces of furniture and provide a smooth, mellow tone for a bedroom. Our Rift Oak Pressed wardrobe is ideal, with the dark wood giving a brilliantly sophisticated vibe.
