A Moroccan theme is a beautiful addition to almost any homedecorating plan. With the beautiful colors, rich textures, and lush fabrics there is no doubt as to the reason that this style of decoratingis becoming so popular around the world.
These are some of the most beautiful and in some ways the most exotic styles of decorating that you will find around the world.
The Moroccan style is quite lovely and includes many bold colors and textures to keep not only your eyes occupied but also your other senses as well. The good news is that it is bold enough that it is still relatively new as far as decorating styles within the US goes.
This means that you aren’t likely to have the identical interior décor of your neighbor, friends, or cousin down the way. Even if they adore what you have done and want to imitate it within their own homes, chances are they will not choose the exact designs, patterns, colors, and textures that you have chosen since there are so many fabulous things from which to choose.
Mosaics are perhaps my favorite touch from this part of the world. They are beautiful and very versatile. They can be used for almost anything.
I have seen stunning tables, trays, light fixtures, candle holders, wall sconces, and wall art that was made from mosaic tiles. In fact, this style of artwork (or whatever you might wish to call it) is growing in popularity in the states exponentially in recent years.
People are often trying to imitate the style or at the very least purchasing products that incorporate the style.
Fabrics used in Moroccan design and home décor are among some of the most stunningly beautiful fabrics you will find in the world. In fact, many people decide on this sort of theme for the fabric alone and even many who have passed on a Moroccan theme for their homeshave still managed to squirrel away some of the fabric in order to create beautiful pillows and curtains.
The fabrics are worth taking a look even if you aren’t seriously considering incorporating this style of design into your homedecorating plans.
The furniture when selecting this style of design for your home is very ornate and beautiful. Moroccan craftsmanship is not to be under stated, as it is very lovely. Now for some, the furnishings are a little much but the other touches of Moroccan décor are perfectly inline with personal preferences.
If you are one who feels this way it is not an uncommon feeling. Whilethe work is beautiful it can definitely be overwhelming. However, there is nothing wrong with taking the design aspects you like from the Moroccan style of home décor and not borrowing those you aren’t perfectly delighted with.
One thing that very few people complain about however is the rugs.Persian rugs are by no means inexpensive but they are most definitely worth every penny paid for them when they are made well.
These are some of the most highly prized and sought after rugsaround the world not only for the richness of their colors but also for the intricateness of their design.
Be sure to consider the value that a Moroccan decorating style could add to your enjoyment of your home. While it isn’t for everyone as a whole, there may be bits and pieces that are absolutely perfect for you.
