Morocco itself is a small universe in this planet, considered by some a gate to Africa. The traditional Moroccan style represents a world of colors and decorations, marked with attitude and charm. If you want to design your home in a Moroccan style, and it is definitely something that many of us want to find in our own homes, you should use warm colors, sensual lighting, and traditional furniture. This style is an explosion of colors, furnishings, textures, carpets, and decorations.
In both interior and exterior designs, the color is the key word. It is recommended to use a color palette that reflects the earth and the heat. Colors such as chocolate, eggplant, purple, olive green or jade, even silver or yellow, will look great in your Moroccan interior decorating style. The Moroccan style is a mix of colors, which is why you can also use pink along with other vibrant colors. It is recommended to keep the walls in neutral colors such as white, beige or sand color, so that the vibrant colors of the decorations will stand out.
The materials used for the furniture, are all natural, mainly wood, encrusted with rich ornamental sculptures. To get a spectacular Moroccan interior decorating style, you must fill the room with many armchairs and sofas with dozens of colorful cushions, and for the storage space you should opt for drawers or decorated chests.
If you choose to create your bedroom in a Moroccan style, you should know that the bed becomes a point of attraction. In the Moroccan homes, the bed is simple, wooden, but it can have a spectacular transformation if you accessorize it with some decorative oriental cushions.
Besides the traditional wooden furniture encrusted with ornamental sculptures, you may also use wrought iron. You should not forget about the coffee table, often covered with ceramic or colored glass, that you will always find in a Moroccan living room.
In the Moroccan style, you will find many decorations made of terracotta or ceramics, painted with geometric and floral elements. You can try designing an area with ceramic plates using a Moroccan model. The ceramic tiles go perfectly, especially in the kitchen, in the bathroom, or on the terrace. For countertops and other surfaces it is better to use mosaic.
Regarding the decorations, choose a large mirror, many lanterns, lamps, possibly ones made of iron, bronze or copper. To obtain an exotic and seductive atmosphere, illuminate the rooms with some opulent chandeliers and choose some dark colored velvet curtains.
