When you think of Morocco, the kind of rich images that the very thought conjures up can make anyone feel royal. Ever thought of giving your living room a makeover and adding some Moroccan appeal to it. If not, we can help you put together a look and bring the flavors of Morocco into your living room. It is unique and definitely an ice breaker at home parties.

If done right, your living room will become your oasis

First things first, don’t worry about going all the way to Morocco and lugging Moroccan furniture and fixtures. All that and more is available just a mouse click away. Glad we got that out of the way because that would have been a pretty expensive makeover.

The color theme of the room is of utmost importance and we feel you must start there and the rest of the look will just come together effortlessly. Morocco is associated with vibrant hues, colors that remind you of the spice souks and rich gold with a bit of saffron thrown in. The colors have to be unique and the fabric that would be used as upholstery should be exquisite to bring out the vibrant colors. Varying shades of red, blue and yellow are often associated with royalty in these areas and that is quite a wide color palette, start there.

Next up is the upholstery, silk or crepe and leather are ideal for adding that special Moroccan appeal to your living area. Choose upholstery with intricate patterns and rich fabrics. Now that the colors and upholstery is on place, the rest of the elements seem to be falling in place just as effortlessly as a camel cruising through the desert.

Moroccan furniture adds class to your décor

Moroccan furniture are a rare blend of Arabic patterns with Mediterranean style. It is the colors and contrasts associated with the Middle East that gives it that appeal. Elements such as Moroccan light fixtures and lamps, Moroccan brass tables or brass tray table, lanterns, glass lamps and camel bone mirrors. Huge vases filled with Arabic calligraphy and Moroccan wall sconce all reflect the climate and culture of the place. Wood and metal frames engraved with elaborate designs are the signature style of Moroccan furniture. In fact, from Moroccan Light fixtures to elaborate pieces of furniture, everything is carved with intricate patterns reflecting the sensibilities of the region. Add little bobs and pieces around the room to give it that touch of opulence, tiny mirrors with elaborate frames and carved vases along with ceramic knick knacks.

A classic rug or carpet along with velvet throw pillows and floor cushions in vibrant colors bring out the Moroccan appeal of the room. Low seating with mood lighting with scented candles surrounding the room completes the look. Lo and behold you walk into the next room and you are in Morocco.
