Exotic Moroccan Inspired Rooms

 

Flowing Fabrics
Jewel-tone fabrics draped loosely over the walls transform this game room into a lavish desert tent, while the distinctive metal lantern above the pool table casts soft, interesting shadows throughout the space. Lighting is an important component of Moroccan design; lanterns, sconces and lamps — often available at import stores — are typically handcrafted and inlaid with colorful pieces of glass. Design by Troy Beasley

Attention to Detail

From the light fixtures to the tilework, Moroccan design is all about the finishing touches. For this opulent bathroom and lounge designed by Chris Barrett, every 1" x 1" tile was hand-cut in Morocco and laid facedown onto panels, which were then secured to the walls. The fretwork panels for the canopy bathtub were custom-designed, as was the luxurious chaise. Even the plaster ceiling was addressed, embellished with Moorish symbols and an amber chandelier.

Amazing Mosaics

Intricate tilework is a hallmark feature of Moroccan design, found everywhere from floors to walls to tabletops. Traditional Moroccan tiling, known as zillij, consists of numerous small tiles grouped together to form vibrant geometric patterns, but larger patterned tiles inspired by Moroccan mosaics can achieve a similar look. For an exotic touch, try installing Moroccan-inspired tile as a kitchen backsplash or across an entire floor to make a dramatic statement.

Bold Pattern

Consider stencils for an inexpensive and DIY-friendly alternative to zillij-inspired tile. In this room, a simple white fireplace surround was transformed into a striking focal point with a graphic pattern stenciled in black. Inspired by a trip to Morocco's ancient capital of Marrakesh, the pattern resembles the dramatic arches prevalent in Moroccan architecture. Stencil by Royal Design Studio.

Architectural Influence

Moroccan furnishings often draw from the country's captivating architecture. In this dramatic powder room, the hand-painted porcelain "Marrakesh" sink by Kohler was inspired by mosaics found in a quaint Moroccan courtyard. The arches and double doors on the mirror above evoke an entrance to an ornate Moroccan palace. Design by Tracy Murdock; photography by Alexander Vertikoff.

A Bit of Glitz

Moroccan wedding blankets, traditionally woven from sheep's wool, cotton and linen by a bride's female relatives before a wedding, are often used as decorative accents in Moroccan homes. Typically neutral in color and embellished with hundreds of mirrored sequins, the blankets can be used as bedcovers, wall hangings or rugs to add sparkle to any room. In this bedroom, a soft, peach-colored wedding throw draped over the bed balances the bold green ceiling, stenciled in a basket weave pattern inspired by a Moroccan chest. Stencil by Royal Design Studio.
