5 Must-Read Tips To Achieve A Moroccan-Inspired Space

Perfect a rich and exotic aesthetic sans the risk of overdecorating

Shares

From the vibrant colors to one-of-a-kind furnishings, it's no surprise that Morocco's rich culture has influenced the art of interior design. If you are also fascinated by this North African country, here's how you can make your space look like a Moroccan dream: 

1. Don't be afraid to mix and match bright colors. 

Moroccan design is all about rich, jewel-toned colors—from rust to browns or pinks and violet, don't hesitate to use them all at once in a single space. If you are hesitant about having an eye-catching aesthetic, keep the rest of the space neutral to tone the look down. 

2. Pay attention to details. 

Beautiful archways and curved windows are some of the most recognizable elements of Moroccan design. Consider adding these details to your home with less permanent materials like paint or wallpaper— just create a stencil on the walls and paint over it in the color of your choice. 

3. Invest in high-quality furniture pieces.

This style is all about intricately carved and plush upholstered pieces, so make sure to splurge on things that can last you a lifetime. Keep the rest of the accessories minimal to draw more attention to the furniture. 

4. Go neutral on the walls, go big on the decor. 

If you want to play with big, statement pieces, try sticking to non-hues to keep the look balanced. Using white, shades of gray, and khaki can also help give contemporary flavor to the Moroccan-inspired style. 

5. Add personal touches.  

Moroccan interiors are vibrant, varied, and never without a whimsical feel. To make the look your own, make sure to sneak in a couple of your favorite things into your space such as a cozy throw, printed kilim, or even your family portrait.
