SCANDINAVIA MEETS MOROCCO
March 26, 2015
We’ve talked about our love of Moroccan architecture, interior design and decor items before, but now we want to talk about how to incorporate Morocco’s famous creative blend of African, Arab and Mediterranean decorating style into a contemporary Scandinavian interior.
Scandinavian design is most recognisable for its bright, white, monochromatic, less-is-more scheme. But to create more depth, interest and a cozy bohemian feel in the space, add ethnic Moroccan motifs and decoration patterns with decorative items in a muted colour scheme to match the airy Scandinavian feel. Stick to neutral, earthy tones such as white, grey, brown and cream. Incorporate beautiful signature Moroccan decorative items such as beautifully handcrafted metallic lamps and lanterns, leather pouffes, the famous handira wedding blanket and Beni Ourain rug, a luxurious wool pompom blanket– the list goes on.
We suggest balancing out the bright look with a luxurious walnut wood floor such as Kährs Walnut Vermont– a dark floor with a natural, lively grade which contains knots and colour variation. The softness of the wood, combined with the golden-brown tones of the walnut will create a warm look and feel underfoot.
We love the timeless and luxurious Moroccan style, and we love the Scandinavian sleek look – so why not combine the two to create an even more beautiful space?
