Modern Moroccan: Color and Texture Help Create Lively, Sophisticated Spaces

Peacock Pavillions, Morocco

In terms of style, my taste is all over the board. I feel a house speaks to what it wants to be, and sometimes a country house wants an ultra-modern bathroom or a Falling Water-esq mid-century masterpiece desires a powder room with a coastal flavor. With that in mind I’ve compiled a grouping of one of my favorite styles, and probably the one that I emulate the most as I move from place to place. (It must be the nomad in me that enjoys this style so much!)

Modern Moroccan, is my way of saying, clean and fresh with modern lines, but with amazing pops of color and pattern. I especially love adding a really vintage feeling Moroccan rug to a very modern room and have done it in most areas of my home. (One day, i’ll post some pictures, but first I need to clean up!)

For inspiration, check out the home of Trish Bygott, owner of the Washington-based retail store Madam Bukeshla. Trish and her husband Nate seem to have the market cornered on seamlessly integrating color and patterns. Pay close attention to the very white walls and gorgeous old wood floors. Everything else is there to accent that beautiful space. Find the full article here.

The traditional Moroccan rug in this white and brown living room brings so much warmth to the room, even without adding any hint of color. Sometimes all you need is a different texture to pull the room together. Found here.

Like the living room above, this bathroom is accented perfectly by a small white Moroccan rug. It plays really nicely off the subway tile walls and would certainly feel yummy on your feet when you get out of the shower.

Whether it’s with a handmade Moroccan Wedding rug, or with some stunning cobalt blue tiles, sometimes all you need is an accent of color to make the room.  Found here and here.

Finally, and this really goes to the heart of my wanderlust, this hotel does it so very right.
