Home Style: the Moroccan way

I’ve always been attracted to the appealing Moroccan aesthetic.  It’s warm, it’s inviting and it’s glamorous.  Here are some ideas to incorporate for your home.  Even a few pillows, a lantern or candle strewn here and there might be enough to get a little welcome to my casbah vibe going.

Moroccan style in the design of a bedroom is a real favorite.  This bedroom is truly luxurious. This decor combines the ideas and traditions of Far East, South Spain and North Africa!

It all started because I walked into this store called Pure Atlas with Modern Moroccan Accessories the other day:

Décor – casual island living

When you live on the water I think you want something reflective of your surroundings. These photos from a friends house overlooking a lake show a balance of simple comfy casualness mixed with sophistication. Of course I love all the sea details with starfish, shells and fish strewn throughout the house.

This is a little sitting nook to have coffee, afternoon tea or just relax or read a book.

I like this stained glass piece in the entryway
I like this stained glass piece in the entryway even though the owner wants to replace it with something different.

Colourful artwork is displayed all over the house but I’ve decided not to post photos as they are stolen private.

Do you have a favourite home style?

For me, it’s a mix of belongings picked up from various travels.  All that matters is that they have meaning to me and bring back memories of places, people and times.  I like a combination of rustic and modern, colour,  black & white or plain white walls with lots of art.  I’m leaning towards less is more now (don’t laugh, I mean that). Ideally, I would have several small homes and each one would be different. A pied-à-terre in Paris, New York and something on the beach. In the meantime, I will live vicariously through some of my friends. It’s always nice to see other people’s tastes.
