11 Ways to Turn Your Home into a Moroccan Oasis

We’ll always have Paris, but as far as home decor goes, we’re all about Morocco right now. From pretty poufs to hand painted rugs, bringing Moroccan style into your space is all about the details. Mix authentic finds from the souk (open-air marketplace) with globally-inspired pieces from the web to easily attain the Moroccan oasis of your world-traveling dreams. And remember, this home trend is all about personalization! Here are 11 ideas to get you started on that much anticipated re-dec.

1. Marrakech Curtain: Let’s ease into this. These patterned curtains are a great stepping stone; especially when paired with vibrant cushions and throws. You can pick up a similar set at Anthropologie for $88. (via Houzz)

2. Moroccan-Inspired Tiles: Intricate and colorful tile patterns are the first thing we think of when it comes to Moroccan design. We love this bright blue take, especially to brighten up a room that doesn’t get much natural light. (via The Kitchn)

3. Stenciled Accent Wall ($43): We love the subtle contrast this Moroccan-stenciled accent wall provides. In neutral tones, it will work well in any space. (via A Pumpkin and A Princess)

3. Moroccan-Style Table: This bright Brit Pick tablescape makes us want to take a seat and chow down on some tagine. Luckily, you can do just that with this table-building tutorial and a good takeout place. (via Camille Styles)

4. Floor Pouf: Maybe you don’t want to sit on the floor while you eat. Maybe you want to sit on this chic white leather pouf instead. So do we. (via The Now Stylebook)

5. Living Room: Moroccan home design is not for the minimalist or the faint of heart. Case in point: we love the layering of colors, textures and patterns in this living room. (via Wisteria)

6. Colorful Pillows: Overwhelmed with inspiration but don’t know where to start? Add color and texture with an abundance of throw pillows. (via The Daily Mail)

7. Ornate Wall Mirror: Intricate tiling also provides a beautiful frame for a mirror. Our eye is drawn right to it in this tone-on-tone bathroom. (via Style Me Pretty)

8. Lattice Wood Screen: As much as we’re lusting over the open-floor-plan trend (yay sunlight!), sometimes you need to divide a space to make it more functional. A Moroccan-inspired wood screen does just that, while also serving as an artistic focal point. (via Style Me Pretty)

9. Rustic Doorknob: Details, details, details — right down to the doorknobs. The metal’s dull finish is beautiful against a jewel-toned door. (via Behance)

10. Moroccan Mosaic Bookshelves: As much as our inner librarians are cringing at the thought of bent books, there’s something beautiful about these geometric bookshelves. Maybe it’s time to learn some carpentry? (via Tanargan)

11. Moroccan Garden Patio: Inspired by Yves St. Laurent’s Jardin Marjorelle in Marrakech, the structure and abundance of greenery on this patio are inspiring us to pour a glass of wine and commune with nature. (via Elle Decor)
