A Modern Take on Moroccan

The classic Moroccan living room seems like an unabated celebration of life with bright colors and diverse textures galore. But we will get to that a little later down the line. Most homeowners wish to add a touch of Moroccan charm to their place while keeping the sleek, sparkling contemporary appeal of the home intact. This can be done using bright pops of color that stand out in a living room that has a cool, neutral backdrop. The vivid splash of color can come in the form of throw and floor pillows, ornate drapes, the classic Moroccan rug and cozy decor in brilliant reds, yellows and blues.

Since using fascinating geometric patterns and bold accent hues is a popular current trend, your living room looks fashionable while embracing the Moroccan overtones. Large mirrors or even sparkling mirrored surfaces can also accentuate this appeal without seeming out of place. In fact, you will be surprised by how well the classic Hollywood Regency style and a Moroccan theme go hand-in-hand in a glamorous living room!

Colorful and Classic!

Are you in the mood to move away from the more modern approach to design and embrace the classic Moroccan-style interior in a full-blown fashion? Then the first thing you need to pick is the background color of your living area. This is the one big difference between incorporating Moroccan elements in a modern interior and opting for a dedicated Moroccan theme. The neutral backdrop in white or cream is simply no longer good enough! Warm yellows and burnt oranges are often the preferred choice. For those who want a ‘Mediterranean vibe’ to their Moroccan living room, aqua, turquoise or teal is an exciting alternative.

Do not hesitate to fill the room with luxurious decor in contrasting colors and heavy patterns when going for a full-blown Moroccan look. Drapes that are inspired by the desert life in the Middle East, some natural greenery, arches and keyhole windows and other elements that were inspired by classic Middle Eastern architecture help give the Moroccan living room a more ornate appeal.

Lights, Patterns and Plush Textures

When decorating a Moroccan-inspired living room, discard the conventional coffee table, side tables and other seating options. Beautifully carved wooden decor additions, colorful local flea market finds with Middle Eastern flair, and obviously those ever-popular and mesmerizing ottomans need to take their place instead. And while you devote all that attention to decor, textiles and colors, do not forget the role that lighting plays in truly giving your living room a Moroccan makeover. In fact, the lantern-style Moroccan lights are its single most recognizable facet and are an absolute must for any interior that’s aspiring to become truly Moroccan!

The exceptional and inimitable Moroccan light fixtures also double as brilliant sculptural additions that hold their own even when not switched on. Combine them with the other widely recognized features of the style–vintage Moroccan rugs–and half the task is done! Stimulating, inviting and at times simply majestic, the Moroccan living room is an expressive oasis of color and creativity.
