Have you always loved the nomadic notion of a Moroccan home? Do intricate prints and warm earthy colours make you instinctively hold out your credit card? Could you very easily live on a bed hanging from the ceiling, even though you have terrible motion sickness?
You may, like us, be yearning for your very own slice of Morocco. We’ve looked into it, and you can achieve this in your on home without major renovations or crippling credit card debt. Shocking, I know.
The most simple way to transform a space is with textiles. The easiest textile to incorporate is curtains. The Marrakech Curtains from Anthropologie are ideal, as their base cream colour is unobtrusive, and they incorporate Morrocan iconography. The vertical design of the curtains will also help to enlarge your space, something that can be difficult when using a variety of prints and colour.
What would we do without rugs, honestly. Throw one down and suddenly your room is completely transformed. If you have dark floors or a limited space, use a light coloured rug with a large print or marking. Anthropologie’s Handwoven Moroccan Cross Rug if a perfect fit, and extremely soft as well. Bonus! For lighter flooring, you can go for a more intricate pattern, like the Byzantine Rug from Very
For finishing touches, pop your tealight candles in some Morrocan lanterns and scatter them about your space. Larger lanterns on the floor are a great feature. If you don’t have much space, smaller lanterns hanging from the wall or ceiling give the same effect. You can pick up these beauties by Firefly at House of Fraser. For those on a limited budget, the Moroccan String Lights at iwantoneofthose.com are you new best friends.
Going all in with the Moroccan theme? You may as well throw the Laurence Cushion from Very on your indoor hanging bed/sofa. Anthropologie does the perfect glassware, ideal for sipping orange spritzers out of whilst basking in your dream Moroccan Home.
