The Arabic architecture is also defined by bold shapes and beautiful ornaments. So if you really want to bring this influence into your home, you could include arched doors and windows, columns and ornate details and moldings. You could also opt for a mosaic or, as a simpler alternative, for patterned wallpaper. Make sure you use bold colors such as blue and orange but, at the same time, try to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that is specific to this style.
