Here’s a little blurb about Moroccan interior design by the writers at moroccanarchitecture.wordpress.com
“The Moroccan home is a unique blend of African, Berber, and Islamic aesthetics…Interior decor is essential to Islamic architecture. Vaults, cupolas, and arched doorways are principle features which serve both functional and aesthetic purposes. In some village homes, recessed walls and benches set in cement stucco offer simple detail.
More elaborate elements may include geometric and floral motifs carved into wood beams or plaster walls. Ceramic tile, known as zellige, is also used, and may be applied to any and all surfaces, and not limited to walls, floors, roofs, and ceilings. Creative and surprising patterns, molded organic materials, and the intriguing lines of Moroccan structural motifs make the Moroccan home an extraordinary visual playground.”
When it comes to Color in Moroccan design..don’t be shy…if there is a spice or north African natural object/vegetable/fruit/flower in that color…go for it.
Also consider the Moroccan landscape when going for color choice…maybe try some golden hues (to reflect the sand) and some blues and greens to reflect the Mediterranean Sea..
A way to get a Moroccan feel, as stated before is to go for Moorish inspired tiles, Islamic-inspired architectural details and colorful fabrics. To get all three in one…try adding a Moroccan fountain or Moroccan inspired mirror to your bathroom’s interior.
Casablancamarket.com has a fair trade selection of Moroccan decor including tiles!
Also Star of Morocco specializes in Moroccan design (one of their fountains pictured below).
Also, at berbertrading.com you can find Berber furniture and decor…even a Berber bathtub! And it’s all fair trade!

To make your Moroccan bathroom even more eco-friendly, try scouring local flea markets for antique Moroccan-inspired wooden doors, room dividers, mirrors,chairs and tables…one’s with even a hint of arch detail can be transformed using a little paint and some fair-trade mosaic tiles added on top!
