It Can Be Simple – It Can Be Luxe
Romantic and exotic, a Moroccan style bathroom may be just the oasis you need.
Create a Luxuriously Exotic Bathroom
Ever wanted to float away to far off luxury in exotic places?
Ever think of creating a bathroom that will help you do just that, even if only in your dreams?
Bathroom decor is one area of the house where you can dress it up to fit your dreams, and where incorporating luxury in little details is often best appreciated.
People escape from stress in the warm waters of their shower and bathtub… in fact it is a recommended, easy way to get rid of stress.
Why not create an environment that pampers your psyche as well as your physique? A hint of Moroccan Style might be just the ticket.
As you can see, a few luxurious details in characteristic materials and colors can create a whole atmosphere. Although there are many examples of layered decorative patterns, there are also an equal number of examples of Moroccan styled baths with simple color and decorative choices. Here the decorative pieces are limited to lighting and the mirrors. The overall effect is stunning and restful at the same time.
I do believe the arched doorway is crucial to the effect, here. Without that design clue, much of the Marrakesh effect would be gone. Attention to those architectural details when using a very simple decoration theme is important. You can make up for a lack of architectural décor by using more patterned accessories in fabric and fixtures.

This has an artistic rustic look, as though it was used for centuries, the bronze scrubbed by a hundred hands, and holding the stories of mysterious times gone by.
Tiles Bring Pattern And Flair
Many bathrooms have tile either on the floor, the walls, or in the shower or tub surround. Sometimes encasing all of those areas. Ceramic tiles, whether using a solid color or the decorative ones, will help create a truly Moroccan style, especially if you are starting from scratch or completely renovating a bathroom.
This particular shape of tile, a scrolled edge, is quintessentially Moroccan in feel. If you like solid color, the shape of the tiles give all the design you need. It is a design that is repeated on many fabric designs and which you can also mimic in stenciling, but the ceramic tile will make the bathroom easy to clean.
Consider incorporating tile into the look.

Moroccan Wall Stencil
The look of tile on a painted wall
It isn’t a cheap trick, but an ingenious way to insert the look of Moroccan tiles in an otherwise modern nondescript painted wall. Simply use your own elbow grease and paint the colors you desire.
Sometimes real tile is not in the budget, or the desire to repeat the look on the portion of the wall above tiles needs something beautiful and simple. This stencil is just what you need.
It would also look great in a bedroom adjacent to the bathroom, to carry your Marrakesh dreams throughout the suite of rooms.

Moroccan Blue is Restful
When creating a look don’t be afraid of borrowing related themes. Bring some French style into your North African retreat.
If you see the similarity between French Provence patterns and some of those in Morocco , it is not by accident, and you aren’t imagining things.
Morocco had a great deal of French influence.
“Provence enjoyed prosperity in the 19th century; the ports of Marseille and Toulon connected Provence with the expanding French Empire in North Africa and the Orient, especially after the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869.” -Provence
No wonder these aspects of French and Moroccan style intermingled. The colors are fresh and relaxing, the design is pretty and traditional, it is the best of both worlds in a bathroom that is great to wake up to and perfect to say goodnight to a busy day. The shower curtain can bring the entire room alive with your colors and style.
Color, What Is In A Name?
Romance or Mystery? Cozy familiarity, or Exotic climes?
FRENCH PATTERNED SHOWER CURTAIN
Love the names of these colors- Morning dew, French blue. Monet loved these colors, too. Make your bathroom a work of art.
While blue and white are mainly featured in this article, another look centered around the colors green, caramel, or Moroccan red could also be chosen (and the palette is not limited to only those choices.)
In any case, medallion designs are common in the look and this type of accessory, the toilet tattoo, may be just the touch you are looking for.
Moroccan Style Ceramic Faucet
This is a gorgeous luxury every time you use your bathroom sink- which is several times a day! Delightful blue and white ceramic patterned pitcher faucet .
Sometimes it only takes one truly fabulous detail that you love to make your bathroom retreat a special place which makes you feel like a princess. I would choose something to use every day, like a sink basin, but if that isn’t in the budget, then one truly beautiful faucet like this one from Kohler might be the chosen focal point.
Whether it is something grand like the tub. or smaller additions like beautiful accessories, give your bathroom some special touches of luxury. It will make it a source of pleasure for a long time.
Quatrefoil designs are popular for a reason- they go with almost any other pattern and are traditional, but modern at the same time.
Start with a few fine details
- Lighting is an easy way to dress up a bathroom.
- Towels are another simple way to give the nuance of style as well as incorporate your colors into the bathroom.
- Have you decided on your color scheme? Use towels to accent or harmonize the colors and style you have chosen.
What Details To Look For?
Remembering the materials commonly found in Moroccan interiors helps with putting together a look. Besides the colorful tiles and patterned fabrics, brass or embossed metal accessories might be found along with intricately ornamented metal work of different types.
There’s a lot of decoration packed into this design style!
The key to harmonizing the many elements is scale, along with toned down, naturally derived pigments. The brightest colors in Moroccan decorative patterns are often paired with white or creamy alabaster.
Small Detail Equals Big Design Impact
The luxurious feel of soapstone which holds room temperature and adds texture to the bath countertop. Anchors the look with its sinuous curves and solid material.
Natural soapstone colors vary, and this adds to the unique and attractive qualities of using natural materials (not to mention the texture and feel)
