Moroccan decor, by Babouche-Maroc

If you are looking to bring an exotic, but refined touch to your interior, you can perhaps consider the Moroccan decorative pieces, mysteriously elegant, unearthed in the meanders of the Moroccan style.

Tangled between Africa and Europe, and Morocco is the country blends, influenced by the countries and cultures that surround it. This historical and cultural richness is seen in the richness of Moroccan craftsmanship, and the craftsmanship of the craftsman.

Moroccan furnishing elements

Color and light are the central points of Moroccan decoration. The colors of Moroccan decor and furnishings are bright, warm and rich. They are inspired by the diversity of the Moroccan landscape, the Mediterranean in the north, and the Atlantic Ocean in the west, with their blue and turquoise colors, the heat invoked by the desert dunes in the south and the red colors, fuchsia and orange for sumptuous sunsets.

Moroccan interiors are both simple and complex. The patterns on the walls are incredibly complex, while the decorative elements on the ground are simple, and quite close to the ground. We often find Berber carpets with their artistic design, leather poufs and their mysterious originality (Moroccan poufs are said to bring baraka - wealth - to the home), metal trays, engraved or even Berber cushions.

Moroccan lighting

The second central point of Moroccan decoration is light. Light is at the very heart of Moroccan architecture. The lighting in the patios or Moroccan living rooms is done in subdued light, created by lamps or chandeliers made of chiseled metal. The use of lamps as an element of Moroccan decoration brings a romantic and warm touch, which is found in Moroccan riads, but which you can perfectly reproduce at home.

Floor decoration

The floors in Moroccan furnishings have a privileged place. They are nicely decorated with Berber rugs, Beni Ouarain, or Boucherouite, which the biggest houses of interior decoration are snapping up. Moreover, Boucherouite rugs have not always been a symbol of refinement. They were once made by modest families, who could not afford virgin wool, by assembling the remains of old clothes: Recycling in action.
