Magical Moroccan Inspired Interior Design

Morocco has long been a source of enviable interior style – and it is arguably the original source of the enduring, bohemian style. Elegant, mysterious and enigmatic, Moroccan styling is luxe, yet casual and practical for the heat – perfect for our way of life here in Australia.

 

Moroccan Interior Design Defined

Who can forget the iconic movie Casablanca? Morocco was the seductive setting for this romantic film as it was a political no man’s land, yet it was – and is today, independent, while deeply influenced by its many and varied neighbours. 

Located between Europe and Africa, Morocco and Moroccan interiors are a gorgeous and heady blend of French, Spanish, Persian, Islamic and African styles. Given Morocco is such a cultural melting pot, Moroccan interiors also have the advantage of being able to be artfully blended with almost every other form of décor.

Elements of Moroccan Interiors and Moroccan Decor

Under a hot blazing sun, many Moroccan style homes are designed to bring the outdoors in, offering a cool respite from the heat in a semi-alfresco style of living. Other easily identifiable Moroccan influences are drawn from the colourful, open-air bazaars of Marrakesh to the sparkling blue, azure coastline of Casablanca. 

Dramatic patterns, colours and rich embellishments such as bone inlay are recognisable and unique features of Moroccan style furniture. These pieces are combined with potted plants, classic lead, and coloured glass lighting, decorative mirrors, lush woollen rugs and woven accessories, all combining to create the perfect indoor oasis – Moroccan style.
