Bring an exotic yet luxurious feel to your home with Moroccan décor. Rich colours and intricate shapes and patterns combined with natural textures and materials give this interiors style everlasting appeal and interest. Whether you make it a dominant theme or simply borrow an influence from Morocco, your home will be transformed into a sophisticated space that’s warm and comfortable with a touch of mystery.
Reflecting its long history and its gateway position between Africa and Europe, Morocco is a country blending influences from various parts of the world including Spain, Portugal, Libya and Algeria with strong Arabic and Indian flavours. A Moroccan Style Interior takes dramatic features of this blended culture as well as its local desert, mountain and sea environments to create a unique earthy look. Some of the key elements of Moroccan Style are handcrafted soft furnishings; metal and timber in the form of lighting and furniture pieces; cut out work and intricate patterns which appear in a myriad of forms and leather, terracotta and tiles – all tied together with a strong base palette and a generous use of décor accessories.
One of the most beautiful gifts from Morocco is its carpets which are made from local goat wool woven into individual pieces usually white with a charcoal diamond line. These gorgeous Beni Ourain carpets are a fabulous base to any room and coordinate with many colour schemes providing an immediate artisan look and feel, no matter your flooring. Layer Moroccan tapestry and embroidered cushions, lovingly sequenced wedding blankets, natural or colourful leather pouffes and you have the mainstays of Moroccan Style.
Moroccan furniture uses traditional craftsmanship to produce inlay and carvings in geometric or floral paisley shapes. Surfaces are natural or richly coloured. Zohi Interiors’ Bone Inlay range is perfect for Moroccan interiors. Other examples are beaten metal tea tables, timber occasional tables with Mughal style underspace, plump cushiony sofas upholstered in natural fabrics and tables, cupboards and cabinets painted with intricate floral designs or scuffed/distressed techniques.
The Moroccan Style conjures images of light like no other - desert or coastal setting suns casting golden hues across a village, daylight sneaking into a darkened room through an elaborate window shutter or an electric light casting a romantic ambiance across a room. You can bring this magic into your space with the clever use of Marrakech table and pendant lamps, candles and lanterns and appropriately themed artwork and decorator items.
This is a dramatic and exciting style which is fast becoming popular in many homes around the world. At Zohi Interiors we love the Moroccan look and have sourced the very best products to help you love too.
