If you wish to transform your interior decoration and decoration by add a touch of Moroccan design, here is a gorgeous collection of innovative methods to do it.

  1. Color is the centerpiece of Moroccan decorating. Drawing motivation from Morocco’s landscape, look for tones of blue and green from the Atlantic and Mediterranean, glittering gold and silver invoking the Sahara sands, and abundant reds and oranges that conjure pictures of African sundowns. Select rich warm colors such as red, gold, green, brown, or navy to give your home a luxurious Middle Eastern vibe. The use of gold in the Arab culture can also reflect good hospitality.

2. Moroccan furnishings count on sophisticated wrought iron scroll work, mother of pearl inlay, ornately sculpted wood in high relief, highly hued upholstery, and intricate mosaic or terra cotta tile details.

3. Lighting is a an important element of Moroccan decoration. Moroccan lighting concentrates on dim lighting created by lamps and pendants made from colored glass, cut metal and carved wood. Using candle lights in standard lights will include the romantic element of moving light to your decoration and exotic fragrances. Decorate with lanterns that are an inexpensive way to add a Middle Eastern vibe to your living space. Also scatter Middle Eastern inspired home accents around your home. Look for ones that are made of brass, bronze or copper as well as ceramics and pottery.

4. Big wall mirrors in carved wood or created metal frames provide a sense of high-end to the atmosphere. Special and really ornamental wall mirror frames can be made from wrought iron, wood, steel, ceramic mosaic tiles, leather or colored glass tiles. Large wall mirrors are terrific for entryway designs and living space decorating, developing brighter and lighter house interiors and highlighting interior decoration with original and impressive Moroccan accessories.

5. Floor seating is popular not only in the Middle East but around the Muslim world. To create floor seating, build a low level bench, top with a thick mattress then scatter pillows all over for comfort. Or simply toss pillows on the floor to encourage floor seating.

6. For privacy and style a latticed window screen becomes the key feature that also provides climate control, and of course, aesthetics. You can replicate that look in your home with a Moorish inspired window shade.

7. Introduce the traditional mosaic. Since mosaics are made of small tile pieces, rooms they are used in would appear smaller. It truly takes skill to match geometric mosaic patterns and colors in interior spaces so they don’t look busy and overwhelm the space. Use mosaic in niches, columns or as backsplash in the kitchen area.
