is having a moment, but the timeless design is one that’s stood the test of time. Thanks to the wide variety of colors and prints, this decor motif can be customized to suit practically any design style. From intricately woven Moroccan pillows to boldly patterned boucherouite rugs, there are infinite opportunities to infuse some of Morocco’s rich culture and tradition into your homes. Here are some of our favorite spaces showcasing Moroccan design to inspire your next decorating project.
Take a page out of the traditional Moroccan decor handbook and layer your boucherouite rugs on top of each other to bring a laid-back, homey feel to your space. To keep the room looking unified, opt for rugs in similar color schemes that complement —rather than compete with— each other.
Create an eclectic outdoor lounge area where you can enjoy those warm summer nights. We love the rich colors of this space, especially when paired with pillows and blankets featuring a medley of stripes for that relaxed, perfectly-undone look.
No patio, no problem: You can still create a cozy outdoor nook with the help of a throw rug and some embroidered ottomans. This simple style is great for casual get-togethers, and much more chic than standard folding chairs.
If this brightly-colored boucherouite rug doesn’t scream summer, we don’t know what does. Switch up your home decor as the seasons change to breathe new life into your space. A vibrant carpet and some plants is all it takes to make your home feel fresh again.
Why limit Moroccan decor to grown-ups? An elegant rug like this one will bring together the design of your nursery and make for a much more unique space that will never go out of style (though at some point, you’ll have to swap out the crib for a regular bed).
Make a whitewashed room really pop by incorporating a Moroccan element to small areas of the space, such as the pillows and throw blanket. With a neutral backdrop, the intricate details on each accent piece stand out and easily make the colorful items the focal point.
Entryways can be tough to decorate, so skip the hassle of an elaborate decor scheme and opt for a statement rug that instantly upgrades the hall on its own. By choosing a larger carpet with a bold pattern, you can keep the rest of the items to a minimum without ending up with a space that looks bare.
With so many different prints to choose from, Moroccan decor offers the perfect excuse to unleash your inner maximalist. Abandon the “less is more” philosophy and go all out with a variety of patterned pillows and mismatched frames. An ottoman ensures you always have enough seating while also adding another level to the overall look of the room.
