Moroccan Inspired Interior Design

We’ve all been drooling over the gorgeous Moroccan inspired interior designs. They’ve been all over my Pinterest feed and honestly it was love at first sight. I’ve been trying to incorporate some of the themes, colors and ideas seen in Moroccan interior designs into my own life and I thought I would share a few ideas and tips with you guys.
  • Architecture - Moroccan architecture plays a huge role in Moroccan interior design. From huge arches to expansive ceilings and open living areas, these building styles provide the base for their interior designs. However, dropping thousands of dollars to redo your space every time a gorgeous new trend pops up is impractical. So I came up with a few *cost effective* ideas to incorporate Moroccan architecture into your space. Mirrors such as this one incorporate both the archway aesthetic and the mirror will help make your space look more expansive. A room divider like this one is also a great way to divide a room, and again it incorporates the archway idea.

  • Patterns - Intricate patterns and details are seen throughout Moroccan designs. Often abstract, these designs usually incorporate flowers, geometric shapes, tessellations, and other repeating designs. These patterns are usually seen carved into the architecture, boldly painted on walls, or used in fabrics designs. A way to incorporate these patterns in your own home would be using them in paintings like this or this . You could also use these patterns in bedspreads, blankets or pillows.

  • Rich Colors - In my opinion, colors are what make the Moroccan style. Rich blues, oranges and vibrant turquoises are all seen in Moroccan interior designs. What makes them even more gorgeous is the way they pop against the bright whites, silvers, and golds. If repainting isn’t in the budget, a great way to add a pop of color is with bedding, blankets, or pieces of art.

  • Overhead - Color and design doesn’t just stop on the walls. Often seen in Moroccan interior design are elaborate designs on the ceilings and large hanging lights.

  • Relaxing Areas - Another large aspect in Moroccan interior design is the relaxing areas filled with throws, pillows, and floor pillows. These low to the ground areas add a super unique element to your space. Floor pillows and bright throws are absolute essentials!
