If you truly want to make a noticeable different and give this trend the five star treatment it deserves then dramatic, grand and simply beautiful archways are the way to go. There is no denying how lavish and extravagant this looks. People will feel as if they are walking into a Moroccan style palace rather than a home.

Plush Upholstered Furniture.

Whilst Moroccan inspired decor may be extravagant, lavish and rich it is still very much comfortable, relaxing and plush too. When buying sitting furniture you need to opt for upholstered pieces that look extremely comfortable and feel even more so.

Lanterns.

Bold Colours.

Moroccan interior design is all about colour, colour and more colour. Don’t hold back. This is an interior style for the vibrant, lively and energetic. From beautiful blues to exotic oranges; the options are vast.

Courtyards.

If you truly want to emulate the Moroccan feel then privacy is imperative. Most traditional Moroccan homes have a courtyard rather than a front or back yard. It provides the home owner with a greater level of peace. Nonetheless, you definitely don’t have to be discrete in terms of style. Colourful cushions and a outdoor water fountain is the ideal way to finish off this trend.

Rugs.
