Moroccan Inspiration

During my second Diploma project I’ve been looking at inspiration for Moroccan style interiors. I love so many things about these interiors, from the dark woods to the pops of vibrant colour. I thought I’d share some of my Moroccan inspiration in a post.

This shade of green works so well with the bright pink cushions, an idea that could easily be used to brighten up a plain interior. One of my favorite aspects of Moroccan interiors are the Moroccan Arches. I think the shape is beautiful and I’d love to have one in my home one day!

The dark wood bed and bright soft furnishings finish the Moroccan theme of this room. Try using dark wood furniture in a light, bright room to give a Moroccan feel! (Image found here.)

I thought I’d include a photo to show how simple items can create a Moroccan style interior in your own home. Here, brightly patterned soft furnishings like rugs and cushions are carefully chosen to add colour to the interior, while other items such as the small white table and wall decorations bring Morocco into the home.
