Design Inspiration: Morocco

Design Inspiration: Morocco

In the 14th century, Morocco was at the center of the world. Its position on the edge of the Mediterranean made it a center of art and culture, and a melting pot of African, Islamic, and European cultures.

Those influences can still be felt today in the region's distinctive style. Right now I'm craving a little bit of that Moroccan look, with its rich hues, abundant geometric ornament, and undeniable aura of mystery.

The goods:
1. Nailhead chest by Bernhardt.
2. Swing from Anthropologie.
3. Poufs from The Future Perfect.
4. Armchair from High Fashion Home.
5. Anthropologie rug.

1, 2, 4, 5, & 6: Elle Decor.
3: Oliver's Moroccan Riad.
7. La Sultana Hotel Marrakech, via Moroccan Design.
