Exotic Luxury, Exciting Color, Your Own Night In Casablanca

Rich textures and patterns in colorful fabrics, low seating, ornate carving- these are some of the characteristics of furnishings for a bedroom oasis that has a Moroccan flair.

COLORS?


“Classic Mediterranean blue and white, to intense Delacroix red, to monochromatic yet elegant black and white” and more, from cool off whites to deep jewel tones. sparkling interiors with a bit of fantasy woven in. There is an opportunity for some shabby chic and flea market sale shopping when you put together this look, but it is an “antique” not “junk sale” look.. the faded textured pillow and rugs, the softened colors and worn places of the painted furnishing give comfort, not distress.

If you pay special attention to a few details such as side tables, decorative lighting, typically Moroccan patterned fabrics and keep the furniture on a low profile you will create a truly magnetic Marrakesh hideaway.

Everything low and comfortable

Pillows and poufs, carpets and low tables all add to the feeling of comfort.

The Beauty of Moroccan Décor

This style is easy to pull together and it has lots of personality. With a few touches in bedding, occasional pieces, and accessories, the look can be attained.

If you want something that is warm and exotic and filled with rich, luxurious comfort, then Moroccan style is for you. It can be simple, or fantastically layered, and really depends on your own decisions while putting together your space.

To simplify the design, constrain the patterns to a color harmony like blue, beige and white, or something similar. To add more complexity, gather together more of the brighter colors, then add more textures and patterns.

With many of the elements removable like pillows, or lanterns and mirrors, it is easy to change the space when wanting more or less pattern and visual interest.

“…pottery, slippers, poufs, spices, lanterns, paintings, baskets, carpets, bags, jewelry…”

Poof Ottoman – For Your Marrakesh Hideaway

This is going to give an immediate Moroccan feel to your bedroom décor. Comfy and comes in other colors.

These little ottomans give a handy place to sit while dressing. They can double as a small table area and lend lots of impact for their small size. The colors they come in are almost limitless. I’ve seen a number of brands with different materials and colors. Then, to top it off, Zazzle has offered those you can design yourself.

Poufs Are Perfect Low Seating

This is right at home in the Moroccan style, and gives both low seating and serves as a base for a tray. It gives an authentic Middle Eastern flavor to a design.

A Hanging Chest

Create the bedroom look with space to store essentials. Shelves revealed within, when the two front doors open wide.

Ebony finish on wood; a wood frame and glass panels of reverse painted glass in gold, greens, and burnt sienna. Use it for anything- sweaters,baskets with smaller items, extra linens.

Moroccan Chest

Overall dimensions: 36.5″ H x 41″ W x 12.5″ D makes the full size chest a major storage piece.

The subtle grayed color fits into rooms with neutral, green, or blue.

Curtain Considerations

Curtains are a the third largest color space with only the walls and the bed having bigger design impact. Make sure yours give the atmosphere and pattern that makes the room.

Details For Your Bedroom Theme – Fabrics and Accents

As you add accents of lanterns, a mix of traditional styled fabrics in the beautiful colors of Moroccan red, blue, and ocher… the room warms and comes alive. The ornate look of filigree stands out against starkly plain walls, sometimes painted in bright colors, or -more often- in a warm off white or creamy beige.

Richly Patterned Bedding

To create a focal point, the bed coverings are an obvious choice. Usually the biggest visual element in the room, the bedding can be layered to produce the patterns and texture that give this style its character.

Traditionally, blue and white or colorful patterns would be used, but more modern tastes veer towards a subdued and sometimes neutral collection of shades. Whatever color scheme you choose be sure to make the bed the center of attraction.

Moroccan End Tables

Wood, metal, or mirrored, Moroccan tables are often ornate and add decorative pattern.

The occasional tables placed bedside or around the room ( next to a comfy reading chair,perhaps?) are the best way to incorporate the feeling of a decorative scheme without a big outlay of your budget. It is also a way to get the feeling without a full commitment to a certain style.

Those with octagonal shapes fit into corners. Make one of the Moroccan end tables your first purchase, then add some accents for a sure way to bring romance to your boudoir.

Eye-catching Accents

Bring Moroccan Flavor Into The Room

  • Brass decorative details for an authentic accent.
  • Bring the medallion tile pattern to the floor, with a rug in a light color duo for the bedroom. Many pile rugs have the popular tile patterned design that repeats this familiar Moroccan look.
  • A comfy chair for reading or beside the Moroccan table can make a sitting area for morning tea.

Don’t forget the small details that add up to the feel of a certain place and time in a room.

Even a nightlight and replacement light switch covers add to the decorative theater of your bedroom oasis.

Small touches of pattern, materials, and accents draw the eye and the imagination.

Moroccan Tea Glasses make lovely accessories in any room, but bring special accents of color in a Morocco nuanced bedroom getaway.

Create An Accent

Something as simple as some ornate tea lights can import the feeling of a faraway clime. Added to bedding and bedside tables, a few decorative accessories convincingly convey a Moroccan hideaway.

Decorative Light Fixtures

Moroccan light fixtures are unique from any other country in the world. Be sure to add some lanterns, and consider ceiling or sconce fixtures. A Tiffany style lamp could also be added for color and pattern.

Light fixtures may be one of the easiest ways to inject both ambiance and the feeling of a look like this one. Why not replace generic fixtures with those that give a room an authentic accent? The metalwork will add texture and pattern which allows for simpler bed coverings and less clutter in accessories.

Outfit Your Bedroom With Things You Will Enjoy

A place for tea things on a small table; Poufs and pillows to sit near low tables or in an alcove- details that make this your refuge from the demands of the day.

The boudoir has always been a place to relax, and a Moroccan habit is to take tea with mint in decorative little glasses. These are ideal for bringing color and charm into the décor, while providing a real invitation to have our own teatime break.

Use a side table to fill a corner, a hexagonal shape table is a very useful and eye pleasing shape that fits in almost anywhere.

Pillows are an easy way to add color and texture in Moroccan style.
