- With Moroccan furnishings you experience an interplay of shapes and colors
Oriental shapes meet natural colors! This is how you can define the basic rule of the Moroccan style of furnishing. Here we find opulent ornaments, fine fabrics and curved patterns. The furniture and window frames are made of light wood and decorated with oriental motifs. The decorative carvings are an important detail of Moroccan design. For this you mainly use motifs such as flowers, leaves and vines, i.e. everything that comes from nature. Since we have already mentioned the windows, we should emphasize that they are by no means rectangular. But on the contrary. In Morocco there are floor to ceiling oval or rounded windows decorated with wood carvings. They are a real eye-catcher from outside and inside. In addition, in most houses they are covered with light-proof fabric curtains. They match wonderfully with a macrame knotted oriental wall hanging and spread a unique exotic charm in the room.
These wide, floor-to-ceiling windows are fitted with wooden grilles, yet they allow enough light into the room.
Making macrame is a traditional Moroccan art.
And that's far from all about the Moroccan-style ambience. Comfort is the top priority there, which is why you set up a true oasis of calm that invites you to relax and meditate. The seating is a bit lower, which seems strange to Europeans, but is a custom in the Orient. imaginative moroccan carpete cover the floor, sometimes a wall in the room. This spreads a feeling for warmth and security. Low upholstery and countless soft throw and floor cushions are indescribably Moroccan and inviting and tempt you to linger a long time.

In addition to the typical Moroccan interior, there is a real play of strong colors and oriental patterns that emphasize the exotic in the room. The color palette is fascinating and deprives the senses of its intensity. Colors such as carmine red, bright orange, saturated pink and bright purple are very typical Moroccan. These are skillfully combined with bright nuances such as violet, turquoise and bright shades of green. Blue is also a popular color in Moroccan interior design, the palette ranges from light blue to navy blue to the very dark shades of blue. To round off this wide range of colors, gold and silver are often used, which are used as accents here and there. Neutral colors such as gray or soft earth tones such as brown and yellow are also not excluded. The curved oriental patterns such as stripes, serrations and waves come into their own on this motley background.
