What Houzz contributors are saying:
Find Inspiration in Traditional PatternsThe rich jewel tones and geometric patterns like this that can be found in many examples of artwork also work as holiday inspiration.“The best thing is to just go look up Islamic art and just start there,” Sayes says. “Get that print and put it on something pretty, and you’ve already added so much more to your home.”
Make it Moroccan. Often cropping up as a motif in Moroccan design — think fretwork screens and lanterns — trellis patterns can transport you straight to North Africa. For fabrics and wallpapers, choose trellis designs in rich, earthy colors to boost the authentic feel.
9. Metalwork. Moroccan metalwork has been passed down from generation to generation, resulting in beautiful and intricate decorative accessories for the home. Metal mirrors, vases, lanterns, kettles and trays are just a few of the traditionally hand-crafted metal items that adorn Moroccan interiors.More metal wall artGet this look: Don’t limit metal Moroccan accessories to the main rooms of your home. Sometimes it’s easier to introduce new accents in less-used spaces. Swap out a plain bathroom mirror with a more intricate metal one. Include a Moroccan frame on an art wall, a metal serving tray to hold remotes or a cluster of metal vases on an entry table.
