Moroccan inspired interior design

If you’re looking for interior design inspiration, why not indulge in warm Moroccan hues, perfect for those summer nights. Moroccan style is all about colour and texture, complemented by muted lighting. Traditional Moroccan interiors are often dark and cosy but for a modern twist, light walls and accent colours for soft furnishings is a great way to get the Moroccan look with a contemporary feel.

Earthy colours all work well: brick dust reds and yellow ochres are perfect teamed with golds or silvers. Rich and opulent is the concept, but balance is the key to avoid the Bollywood look!

To maintain continuity – which will help avoid the temptation to over do it – pick 3 to 4 key colours and use them in moderation.

When done well, Moroccan interiors are inspirational and luxurious, often eclectic and full of hidden treasures but this is not a look that can be achieved over night, or rushed into. A mood board is a must to avoid ethnic over-kill.

Start by selecting your colour palette, then select focal points to accentuate in the room. A few key features are all you need; mirrors and statement furniture pieces will give your room that wow factor, but remember all in moderation.
