Are you fascinated by the rich aura of Moroccan décor? Well, the Marrakesh theme is truly captivating with its plush and elegant aura that renders a true regal touch to your room. Many homeowners looking for an exotic style statement prefer taking to Moroccan décor these days.
Let’s start with the colors. Moroccan shades are inspired by the colors of natural elements making up the region- like the desert, sky, earth and the sea. Thus, the most compatible colors for Moroccan décor are sand yellow, blue, green, red and silver. Foe example, you can use sand yellow as the base color for your walls and highlight your with blue fabrics like bluish mat, shower curtains and towels. Sometimes, a blue Moroccan bathroom sets pretty well with white towel and shower curtains patterned in typical Moroccan artwork.
No Moroccan décor is complete with the typical Marrakesh artwork. The most hallmark of the Moroccan artwork is the scrolled edge motif which must be followed in your bathroom walls and the fabrics used in the washroom- such as towels or mats or the shower curtain.
Now, tiles are really important in regards to Moroccan flooring. Try to get tiles with the scrolled edge motif for the ultimate Marrakesh effect. Added to the floor, you can even use the Marrakesh patterned tiles to highlight the special areas in your bathroom, say the wall just above your bathtub.
The arched effect is really important in the Moroccan décor. So, you use it for the bathroom door and also if you have got a partition between the shower and wash area. Both wood and wrought iron play a significant role in Moroccan theme. You can use wrought iron for the racks in your bathroom- an intricately pattered mirror in wrought iron frame would be a gorgeous addition to your very plush Marrakesh lavatory. Wood would go well for the bathroom cabinets.
For faucets and basins, you can use sandstone. Otherwise brass taps and patterned brass basins would also work well for the Marrakesh themed bathrooms.
Then, plants are an important aspect of Moroccan décor. Use little bit of indoor plants inside your bathroom- you can place small potted plants near the bathroom window or get racks especially for the plants. It’s good if you can have brass holders for your plants.
