What is Moroccan decor?
To decorate in a Moroccan style is to dress your home in colors and texture. Moroccan decor includes these design elements everywhere from pillows to rugs to art. Float generous folds of fabric across windows or bedposts for a mystical Moroccan touch. Add candlelight, metallic accents, and plenty of cushions. Within moments, you’ll feel as if you’re in Marrakech!
Start with a Moroccan pattern you love
Moroccan textiles are famous throughout the world for their intricate, bold patterns, so it makes sense to start your home decor journey with a Moroccan pattern that you absolutely love. Once you have one–or a few–selected, it will be easy-peasy to decorate your home. You may even decide that you want to build the rest of your decor around that print. You can make the Moroccan pattern a focal point for the room, or you might want to use it as the concept or theme for your Moroccan interior design.
On the other hand, you might want to echo a shape from that pattern in the rest of your furnishings and home decor, or you may want to tease out an accent color from the main print to repeat around the room. In many ways, it’s whatever your heart desires here, and remember–you’re not limited to just one or two patterns. When it comes to Moroccan decor and design, layering patterns is the name of the game.
Mosaique Bleue serves as our tribute to the world-renowned Moroccan tilework known as zellige. Here, we take a floral motif and arrange in a traditional Moroccan tile pattern.
Moroccan-inspired curtains for instant Moroccan decor
Moroccan style curtains come in as many sizes and styles as the mounds of spices at the souks. Choose a set of Moroccan curtains that can lay the foundation for the rest of your Moroccan decor and turn on the volume for your sense of Moroccan style. From beaded valances to full-length sheers, Moroccan style window treatments deliver uncommon beauty.
For a sensual, vibrant interior design, turn to Moroccan curtains. (And if you love our curtains but can’t use sheers, there’s an easy fix–see this post.)
When you can’t just up and whisk yourself away to the Land of Colors, do the next best thing! Create your own Moroccan escape from the rest of your everyday world by turning your bath space into a Moroccan style bathroom.
One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways of transforming yours into a Moroccan bathroom by hanging one of our Moroccan patterned showercurtains at the bath. A Moroccan curtain filled with vivid colors and patterns breathes new life into any space–especially a small space like a bathroom. Echo the look with Moroccan window treatments. Turn down the lights, burn a sandalwood candle, and enjoy.
Moroccan bedding for a boho, Moroccan style bedroom
Treat yourself to Moroccan bedding and you’ll enjoy a magnificent retreat that’s pleasing to the senses. A Moroccan bedroom invites tactile pleasures and invites you to sink in, relax, and enjoy its sensory delights. Moroccan bedding can be as simple as throwing one of our cotton duvet covers over the bd, or it can be as elaborate as suspending sumptuous Moroccan curtains from a four-post bed. Whichever route you choose, color and fabric is the name of the game. Here, soft fabrics and accessories serve as luxe eye candy.
Of course, Moroccan beddings serves a practical purpose, too. Our Moroccan duvet covers are reversible and made for convenience. Simply flip the duvet over and you have a whole new look! In warmer climes, turn to our lightweight cotton bedspreads. Whichever kind of Moroccan bedding you choose, remember to pile on Moroccan pillows for extra softness.
Welcome Moroccan colors and patterns as a way to liven up neutral spaces. Spread a pretty cloth with a Moroccan pattern across the table to bring Moroccan home decor into the kitchen or dining room. This is the perfect accompaniment to a spicy meal and an evening of story telling.
Don’t forget to try a Moroccan table runner in the living room! Simply lay one across a console or coffee table for an easy dose of global style. Remember set of Moroccan curtains in the dining room!

A Moroccan lantern exists where form and function meet. Use one in any room in which you desire a softly filtered canopy of light. The bedroom is the first place that comes to mind, of course, but how about in the living room? And can you just imagine how spectacular they’ll look in the dining room come evening?
Suspend these tealight lanterns anywhere you’d like to cast a gentle, colorful glow.
A traditional Moroccan living room features low furniture, so for true Moroccan vibes, look for low pieces. A low coffee table is perfect for a Moroccan style living room while a brass tray table is perfect as a nightstand in a Moroccan bedroom.
Morocco’s interpretation of a tray table features brass tabletops carved by hand.
Moroccan home decor: patterned rugs and carpets
Bring another layer of tactile goodness into your Moroccan-inspired home with rugs. Moroccan textiles like these look great over wood and tile floors or layered over natural rugs like sisal or jute. However, they can certainly brighten up the look of wall-to-wall carpeting, too.

Moroccan pillows galore
We would be remiss to write a Moroccan style guide without mentioning Moroccan throw pillows! In Moroccan decor, the more pillows, the better. In living rooms and bedrooms, a pile of Moroccan pillows in various patterns will help you build on the look. Pile them on a sofa, toss them on the floor, or place them on chairs. Everybody will love them!
