One of the hottest new decorating decors in America today is here to stay. You must be brave and bold to decorate Moroccan style. You cannot be afraid to use bright colours and a mixture of textures. This form of decorating is fun and bright; once you start you will never run out of new ideas. Be the first on your block to go crazy, Moroccan style.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Metal and inlaid lamp
- Large wicker baskets
- Moroccan plates
- Moroccan style throw rug
- Mosaic accent table
- Hand-carved camel
- Moroccan pottery
Purchase new living room furniture or have your existing ones reupholstered in bright colours such as a deep blue sofa, bright orange chair and a dark red ottoman. Use a heavily textured fabric but keep the colours solid.
Put down a Moroccan-style throw rug. These look best over dark wood floors but the decorating will work on a tan, beige or gold as well. It is even fine if you already have carpet in the room; the throw rug will still look great.
Place a mosaic accent table between the couch and chair. It is best if it has an iron base but any metal will work. Place a metal and inlaid lamp on the table. The metals do not have to be the same. Part of the style is diversity.
Accent your walls with Moroccan plates and place a hand-carved camel on a shelf. The plates should be bright and colourful. Then place some Moroccan pottery around. It does not have to look new; it can even have a chip or two.
Place a very large wicker basket by the door with large bright flowers or desert twigs and reeds coming out.
