Moroccan Wallpaper – Rich and Exotic

Moroccan WallpaperMoroccan wallpaper is a great addition for creating an exotic Moroccan look.

Morocco is located in the north of Africa, directly bordering the Atlantic Ocean and Sahara Desert while the Mediterranean Sea separates it with the country of Spain. It is a country steeped in history and has French, Persian and African influences. The famous Moroccan cities of Casablanca and Marrakesh conjure up an image of vibrant market stalls, intricately connected alleyways, exotics food, carpets and rugs, metalwork and pottery. A vibrant colourful place full of hustle bustle and pungent aromas.

Moroccan style is very rich and earthy and can easily be created by incorporating a few key pieces. Elaborate mirrors with intricate designs, hand made pottery and vases, mosaic table tops with extravagant patterns and bright colours, Morrocan lamps, wall sconces, chandeliers and exotically patterned floor rugs. Add touches of gold and timber and the effect is amazing.

Vibrant colours and geometric patterns such as circles, diamonds, triangles and arches are a central part of Morrocan decorating. Tiled walls and courtyards using mosaic tiles in blues and greens are inspired by the cool shades of turquoise and sea blue of the Atlantic and Mediterranean. Red and orange are also used inspired by the desert and the amazing African sunsets. Mix and matching these colours with purples and pinks creates the perfect Morrocan interior.

Decorating Moroccan style will give you some great ideas to create a unique Moroccan interior of your own. After looking there you will be able to see how incorporating Moroccan wallpaper in certain areas will compliment the Moroccan theme perfectly.

Albany – Young At Heart Collection – Charmed Damask

Morrocan style is also about bright vibrant colours as seen in this stunning damask design in bold yellow and blue. It is beautifully detailed and available in other colours. Being a damask design it can be used anywhere but we think it conjures up the Moroccan feel perfectly.
