Bold and bright, Moroccan
decor features an exotic mingling of ornate patterns, vibrant colors, and metallic accents for a chic desert-dweller vibe. Elaborately carved wood furniture sets the backdrop for vivid reds, oranges, blues, and greens; while pouf ottomans with intricate stitching lend a relaxed-but-stylish feel to any room. Metal lanterns (both hanging and freestanding) are a must--when aglow with lit candles at night they add to the style's romantic ambiance. A staple in Moroccan architecture, arches are incorporated on tables and mirrors.Tip!
To bring just a touch of Moroccan style into your home, look for accent pillows, chairs, rugs, and throws in quatrefoil, tile, and modified trellis patterns.Photo: Laura U Design Studio
