Creating An Exotic Moroccan Themed Bedroom
Making a bedroom into an exotic Moroccan themed bedroom is a decorating project that can be very exciting. A Moroccan themed bedrooms can create faraway retreats in homes of any style. Here are several ways to create a Moroccan themed bedroom. Use a jewel-toned color palette. Moroccan design is inherently bright, so choose hues such as vibrant blue, fire red, sunshine yellow, emerald green and hot pink for walls, linens, rugs and accessories. You can tone down these heavy hues and help balance the decor with earthy colors ranging from tan to brown. To create a Moroccan themed bedroom with less color saturation, paint only an accent wall in a bright shade and use a neutral tan color on the other three walls. Use gold or silver metalllics to highlight colors and patterns for a punch of sparkle and shine. Add bed linens with texture, color and pattern. Place a brightly colored comforter on the bed. Choose a solid color or one with stripes of color only at the bottom to provide visual space at the top of the bed to display a myriad of pillows. Use pillows in raw silk fabrics with mirror accents and intricate designs. Embroidered linens also add a Moorish touch to the decor.
Select lighting fixtures with elaborate decorative designs. Place large, colored-glass lanterns with carved wood accents on bedside tables in place of traditional lamps. Hang a metal lantern from the ceiling. Choose one with hand-tooled details to give the entire space a warm glow. Add candlelight by inserting candles into brightly colored, heat-resistant tea glasses that feature Moorish patterns. Accessorize the Moroccan themed bedroom with decorative items to highlight the entire design.
