Morocco is considered a great confluence of a very diverse set of art and design ideals. While some of its edifices bear signs of continental design, a few others showcase indigenous African style. But it is the delicate beauty of Islamic art that made singular impact on Moroccan architecture and design.
So profound was this influence that it gave to birth to a new trend now revered as Moroccan style. It is not limited to Morocco either, and can be seen in almost every corner of the world. Today we will show you twelve stunning interiors of Moroccan homes.
Contemporary Moroccan homes have wholeheartedly embraced modernist interiors. But every now and then you manage to find items that are distinctively Moroccan, like a handcrafted lighting fixture, filigree on the walls or jali design above the windows.
Stylised with traditional rugs, couches, lighting fixtures and a handcrafted table, this living room seems to be bursting with colour. The use of vintage artefacts is prominent.
Traditional fabric for upholstery and curtains complement the décor of this vivid living room.
There was a time when building regulations dictated that a minimum of twenty percent of a plot size has to be utilised as garden. You will see many Moroccan homes still following this rule. A courtyard like this one, decorated with a fountain and several potted plants, is a prominent feature of classical Moroccan buildings.
Intricately designed walls enclose it from all sides. Moroccan lanterns keep the space illuminated after sunset. Moroccan Bazaar is responsible for stylising this space.
Delicate ornamentation on the feature wall and door creates a dreamlike ambience for this bedroom. The soothing colour scheme maintains the peaceful nature of the room. A good night’s sleep is virtually assured in a space like this, don’t you think?
A corner of Marrakech in the heart of New York – an attic space soaked in bright tones, decorated with a Moroccan lantern and with seating arrangements on the floor. The charm of art and architecture can really reach far and wide.
There have been a great many exchanges between the classical art of Andalusia and Morocco. They are bound by their common appreciation for Oriental décor. You will frequently see Moroccan influences on Andalusian designs, and vice versa.
This courtyard is a fabulous example of two design ideals coming together to create a beautifully decorated space.
