MOROCCAN CHIC

When I think of Morocco vivid colors, exotic aromas and a magical culture are the first things that pop in my mind. If describing Moroccan interiors, you'll most likely envision woods, colorful textiles and gilded touches. However, this rich style can be interpreted in many ways—you can go super elaborate or take a more modern and minimalist approach. Take for instance these beautiful and stylish spaces from El Ramla Hamra e-catalogue. They can be the perfect inspiration for you to bring a taste of Marrakesh into your lifestyle. By mixing a couple of pieces from this exuberant style with your own decor, you can create your own version of Moroccan Chic.

Very inspired design. I love hanging those lanterns outdoors-I have a covered patio open on 3 sides. If I didn't use it for dining, it would be a great space for some of those rugs and poufs...
Hi,

I love your post. my favourite is the tiled floor, i would deffo want something like that! and the Handira throw.

I am Moroccan and i love Moroccan decor, i live in the UK, so I have tried to create a decor which is moroccan and modern. Similar to the above. I have buttercream walls to add warmth, with Ivory/biege carpets through out my london flat. In my lounge i have a HUGE Cream Moroccan lantern, its beautiful, with 3 Dark cream/beige moroccan pouffes with intrecate designs on the top, cream leather sofas, one has a striped red/orange and yellow moroccan throw and the 3 small 1 seaters have plain cream throws with Red and cream Handira cushions. All the accessories are from Morocco, 3 little tagines, medium metal tagine, wooden moroccan box, a little chest, Moroccan vase etc etc.
In my bedroom a similar theme as the lounge. i have 3 Handira cushions in red and cream to decorate the bed with ivory duvet cover set and deep red housemaide pillow cases, Moroccan style wardrobe and chest of draws in dark natural wood. A medium cream moroccan lantern and other moroccan objects to decorate the room.

My kitchen is rather simple and not moroccan. i am hoping to buy a complete moroccan dinner set from fez. I cant afford to re do the kitchen. But the accents will make the kitchen feel like a moroccan one.

I would love to have a moroccan lamp on the celing, but they are too large to hang in UK houses which have very low ceilings. As shown in the photo above of the hall way. it would hang in your face. I managed to get a Moroccan style lamp shade from amazon which is cream and beaded with a moroccan floural design. It is suitable for hanging, not in your face and has a touch of morocco. not over whelming.

I wanted to paint my walls white, but in the UK rather cold and would make the room feel cold. You can do this in sunny and warner countries. it works well in Morocco as it is hot 8/9 months of the year. So the buttercream walls give warmth to the rooms.

I hope you post more on Moroccan decor! Love to get more inspiration
