Love these photos above from Morocco of beautiful ornate mosaic tiles featuring yellows, blues, reds, blacks, greens and white all in one pattern!
The north African country of Morocco is known for its rich and ancient history, beautiful architecture (Arab, Spanish and African influenced), its endless deserts (the Sahara namely) and the colorful culture.
All this means that Morocco provides great inspiration to the world of interior design and home furnishings. Detailed and colorful mosaics, finely carved scroll work, pointed arches, grand Arab and Moorish-influenced architecture..all make for a robust lexicon for interior designers and home furnishing makers to draw from when designing for the home.
Moroccan inspired tables, chairs, tiles, lamps, lighting, rugs, fabrics, wall coverings and architecture are an ongoing design trend.
Here are some pieces for the house that take their design style directly from Morocco.
