With the onset of summer, be inspired and refresh your home with a completely different style. Moroccan themes are very popular and a great theme to use as it’s easy to update your interiors to give a warm and vibrant look. A Moroccan theme is versatile and also great for a winter look using rich colours and fabrics.
If you want to go all out and decorate your room to emulate a Moroccan style, choose warm and bold colours that are associated with with the warm climes of Morocco. Colours include deep red, purple, ochre yellow, orange, purple and fuschia pink and emulate their warm spices, weather and bright flowers. By using bold and bright colours you will create an immersive and evocative Moroccan feel to your room. Add large palm plants in planters in your sitting or dining area to add interest and enhance the Moroccan ambience.
We have a wide range of blind and curtain fabrics in our shops that can bring to life a Moorish and colourful interior design. There are lots of options to choose from. You can use brightly coloured silk fabric such as green, fuschia, orange or purple for curtains and blinds. You can also choose fabrics with strong print patterns and bold colours and mix and match the exotic colours or prints together.
You could also choose heavier curtain fabrics to give a luxurious, Moroccan feel in rich reds or purples and add fringing to the curtains. Choosing gold fabrics and a gold colour theme is another wonderful option to go for, and combining gold with deep reds and purples will give exotic opulence to any room.
