The Moroccan Style – Splendour and Exoticism

Long gone are the days when the Moroccan style was exclusively encountered in the Oriental world. Nowadays, more and more people all over the world are tempted to implement this design into their own homes.

Some of the most notable aspects about this style are its genuine cloths and décor materials, its detailed shapes as well as its predilection for handcrafted decorative items. Moroccan residences feature vivid nuances and décor objects inspired by ethnicity. Their uniqueness is given by elements such as outstanding ceramics, brightly coloured tiles, radiant home materials and complex wooden sculptures.

One of the features which are most representative for the Moroccan style and culture is the presence of richly coloured carpets and pillows. When it comes to the pieces of furniture, dark wood is predominant.

Seeing as the Muslim religion doesn’t allow displaying portraits of individuals, when implementing a Moroccan decorating style one should resort to artworks involving nature or geometric forms.

The crafty design of the Moroccan handcrafted decorative items will enrich the general aspect of any home. They are made of materials such as stucco, plaster or wood and they display fantastic models and vivid nuances. The many pillows displayed like in an exhibition in Moroccan homes are made of genuine fibers such as silk, cotton or wool. Basically, what makes the Moroccan style so appealing is an use of natural threads and bright, rich colours, that you simply don’t get with other styles.

Curtains should also be in tune with the vivid palette of colours. The most stylish and fashionable choice would be silk curtains, which also highlight the ethnic element in Moroccan homes.

In a Moroccan-inspired kitchen, all items should be made of forged metal, being in perfect harmony with the traditional Moroccan lamps.
