Genuine call to travel, Moroccan decoration keeps captivating deco addicts. Between bright colours and genuine craftsmanship rooms, the oriental charm is very likely to make you succumb to the Moroccan desert heat, for a cosy and trendy sea-like deco. In this article, you will find out about how to have a successful Moroccan deco for your beach house.
Colour your interior with Moroccan deco
When we think of Morocco, heat comes to mind ! Heat from the desert ! But it can also be the heat wafting from mint tea. However, Morocco is also about warmth that can be found in its people’s friendliness or in the tints of riads’ facades. But how can we incorporate this warm atmosphere into our house decoration ?
To obtain an oriental-style interior, put some sunny tints on walls and ornaments ! Let us forget about the traditional colours related to seaside deco. Opt for terracotta style which will warm up the atmosphere in a stroke of a brush. Amber honey colour or antique pink will dress up your walls perfectly and will definitely match a Moroccan-style deco. You do not feel like painting your walls ? No worries, white is also a great choice as it will make your interior brighter.
For a sunnier atmosphere, you will just have to place some ornaments here and there. To achieve that, you could place some oriental-tinted cushions (purple, orange, ochre…) on sofas and put colourful carpets on the floor.
