Although Moroccan interior design is known for its attention to architecture with beautiful archways and curved doors at every corner, if you’re living in a small city apartment, or even a rental, that might not be exactly a change you can make to your interiors. However, decor-wise there is a lot you can do that will make your home feel warm and beautiful like a true Moroccan interior.
If you want to replicate the feeling of a true Moroccan interior into your own home, the first thing you have to remember is to bring in bold colors. It is usual to see color schemes that reflect both the desert or the ocean, with hues such as orange, green, and blue dominating the interiors.
Ornate furniture is yet another major feature in Moroccan homes. You will most likely find intricately detailed and upholstered furniture. Most of the times, you will find carved seat bases, coffee and side tables that contrast with plush couches, poufs, and even floor cushions.
Moroccan rugs have had a worldwide reputation for centuries. Moroccans have been manufacturing their high-quality rugs for hundreds of generations now, yet it might not be an easy task to find a real authentic Moroccan rug. However, you can still get an approximate feeling for your home by using geometric-patterned and colorful good quality rugs.
A true Moroccan interior will obviously have tiles! If you’re going for a Moroccan living room you can use geometric tiles to create beautiful wall art, or as a focal point of your main living room wall.
Probably one of the most recognizable parts of Moroccan home decor, lanterns are usually in every room. We personally think they look stunning in dining or living rooms. You can achieve this look with a more modern twist by hanging a few uneven lighting fixtures above your dining table, for example.
Moroccan metalwork has been passed down from generation to generation. This means intricate metallic accessories and details a little bit all over their houses. Go with a metal vase, mirror, kettle, or tray to bring in that feeling. Again, if you don’t want to overdo it, start with simpler metallic accessories that will add a dash of that sophistication to your home decor.
If you have ever been to Morocco you know that rich textiles and fabrics are everywhere on their markets! Be inspired by Moroccan interiors and use these colorful textiles as room dividers, draperies, or even furniture protectors for when you have guests and don’t want that mid-century sideboard to get scratched.
