Dreams of Morocco
Let’s take a little trip today, shall we? Around the world perhaps? To a place buried in the sand, but steeped in culture and history. A place where the landscape is stark, but the people are colorful and so are their creations. Where nomads wander and converge and deal and trade. Let’s take a trip to Morocco.
Colors, textures and pattern are all integral pieces of Moroccan design. Glass, ceramic, textile, wood, paint, dye, metal, and leather are all incorporated in these creations, and the more colors the better!
Moroccan textiles are absolutely gorgeous. They are known for their rugs, pillows, poufs and tapestries.
Color doesn’t always characterize Moroccan style though, sometimes it is pure and white, fresh and inviting. Exactly what you crave when you’re in the Sahara desert!
I love the mix of materials in these poufs, look at the seashells inlaid into the tops of some of them! Beads and sequins are often hand sewn onto these beauties.
Lights and lanterns are also well known items in Moroccan design. They are generally made from glass and metal, and are all different shapes and sizes. Aren’t they beautiful?
Inlaid furniture and mirrors are another characteristic element of Moroccan style. Traditionally done by hand, these pieces are always stunning and one of a kind!
