Moroccan-inspired bedrooms are known for their distinct and captivating characteristics that transport you to the enchanting world of Arabian nights stories.
To achieve an authentic Moroccan look, certain elements are essential. One of the focal points is a canopy bed, adorned with flowing drapes in vibrant colours and rich textures. These bed canopies create an intimate and romantic atmosphere, reminiscent of Moroccan palaces. Bright curtains in bold hues and intricate patterns add a pop of colour and diffuse soft, ambient light, casting a warm and inviting glow. To amplify the visual impact, incorporating bright textiles such as Moroccan-inspired rugs, cushions, and throws can infuse the space with lively energy. Another noteworthy feature is the ornate ceiling. Often adorned with handcrafted plasterwork, decorative tiles, or carved wood, showcasing the intricate craftsmanship that is synonymous with Moroccan design.
These characteristics harmoniously come together to create a Moroccan-inspired bedroom that is resplendent with a captivating and timeless allure.
A Moroccan-style bedroom can significantly contribute to improving sleep quality through its thoughtful design choices and soothing ambience. One key aspect is the utilization of a neutral colour palette and a calming colour scheme. Earthy tones such as soft browns, warm beiges, and muted creams dominate the Moroccan-inspired bedroom, creating a serene environment that promotes relaxation. These soothing colours have a profound effect on our mood, helping to calm our senses and prepare us for restful sleep. Additionally, the gentle hues found in Moroccan decor evoke a sense of tranquillity and harmony. This allows us to unwind from the day's stresses and find solace in our sleep sanctuary.
Moreover, Moroccan-style bedrooms often incorporate elements that aid in relaxation, such as the use of essential oils. Lavender, chamomile, sandalwood, and other fragrant oils are renowned for their sleep-enhancing properties. The subtle and soothing aroma of these essential oils can help create a tranquil atmosphere conducive to deep, restorative sleep. The combination of a calming colour scheme, natural materials, and the therapeutic effects of essential oils work in harmony to help us fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer in a Moroccan-style bedroom.
Now that you know more about Moroccan-themed bedrooms, let us help you create one.
Carved furniture is a common sight in Moroccan bedrooms. Wooden king-size beds, richly carved bed frames, and a couple of curtains hanging from the ceilings are something you would typically see in a bedroom in Morocco.
But, let us be honest – all of this is a bit too much for a Moroccan bedroom in the UK. We need something a bit simpler, something that has modern lines, but still ‘breathes' Morocco. And, that something can be found in Leonie Rattan Oak Wooden Bed Frame.
This bed is made of sturdy oak and is beautified with a stunning rattan silhouette that will instantly take you to Morocco. And, if you want to elevate the Moroccan vibe, just add a hanging curtain or a drape above the bed – just make sure to use see-through materials.
Moroccan bedding showcases a captivating fusion of vibrant colours and intricate patterns, reflecting the rich cultural heritage of Morocco. Bright fabrics adorned with Arabian patterns, such as geometric motifs or intricate tile designs, create a striking visual impact. Popular colour choices include deep blues reminiscent of the Mediterranean Sea and shimmering gold accents that add a touch of regal splendour. Together, these colours and materials transform the bed into a luxurious oasis, enveloping you in the allure and mystique of Moroccan style.
If you want to give your bedroom that Moroccan feel, a bedding set is a good way to start.
And, just as previously mentioned, you should look for a specific colour scheme – white&blue with some golden details. Of course, Morocco is also known for vibrant colours like purple, pink, orange, etc., so if that is your thing too, don't be afraid to play with colours.
But, we will stick to the basics and show you our top pick – Ayla Ikat Blue 100% Cotton Duvet Cover and Pillowcase Set. This bedding set is perfect if you want to sink into an Eastern fairy tale every night. Plus, it is made of pure and eco-friendly cotton that will make that ‘sinking' into bed even easier.
Incorporating soft furnishings like pillows and throws in a Moroccan-style bedroom adds an extra layer of comfort and visual appeal. Opt for plush fabrics such as velvet or silk to evoke a sense of luxury and indulgence. Introduce a palette of rich blues, ranging from deep indigo to soothing azure. This can be done in the form of decorative pillows and intricately patterned throws, enhancing the exotic atmosphere and create a cosy haven where you can unwind in style.
A good-looking pillow goes a long way.
If you find a pillow that ‘says' Morocco just by looking at it, trust us, that's all you need to transform your plain bedroom into a Moroccan bedroom.
You probably have a couple of ‘naked' decorative pillows just lying around your home, right? If the answer is yes, consider dressing them up. With this set of blue cushion covers, you can make your pillows more beautiful and your bedroom more Moroccan.
And, the best part about these pillowcases – 6 of them come in a set. So, you can place them on your bed, on the ottoman, or on the chair or sofa you have in your bedroom.
Of course, you can't just buy a decorative pillow and not add a throw in there – these two go hand in hand.
So, we recommend getting this dark blue fringed throw that will look amazing paired with any type of bedding you already have.
Moroccan furniture brings a distinct blend of functionality and intricate artistry to a space. Handcrafted with attention to detail, Moroccan furniture often features ornate carvings, metalwork, and vibrant textiles. From intricately designed coffee tables to elaborately adorned chests and ottomans. Each piece of Moroccan furniture adds a touch of exotic elegance, creating a captivating atmosphere that showcases the rich cultural heritage of Morocco.
When it comes to Moroccan furniture, two things have to stand out – the bed and the bedside tables.
Previously we picked a beautiful Moroccan-style bed, made of oak and canopy – so, we believe that this Habitat Mornington bedside table would match it perfectly.
Again, this is not that old-school Morocco, rather, it is furniture that imitates Moroccan style but can still be incorporated into any modern interior design.
Of course, Morocco is all about vibrant colours, so, to enrich your bed, add an ottoman bench next to it. This will elevate the look of your entire room and make it look richer.
A great example of a storage ottoman bench is this one – Inmozata. Its dark blue colour and velvety feel will fit perfectly into your Moroccan bedroom.
Home decor in Moroccan-style bedrooms embraces a diverse array of elements that exude charm and cultural richness. Pillows and throws adorned with vibrant patterns and luxurious textures enhance comfort and add pops of colour. Intricately patterned rugs serve as statement pieces, while lanterns and chandeliers cast enchanting shadows and create a warm, ambient glow. Traditional lamps and ornate vases with intricate designs complete the aesthetic. They infuse the space with a captivating blend of elegance and exotic allure.
If you want to have a Moroccan bedroom, you just have to have a lantern. The good news about lanterns is that you can use them on the ceiling as a chandelier, you can place them on your nightstand and have them serve both as a nightlight and a statement piece, etc.
This blue and gold Moroccan LED lantern from Mano Mano can be both. It can serve as a source of light. And, it can make your room look amazing.
Moreover, you don't have to stop with one lantern. The more, the better. You can even buy one of those string lanterns that you can put on your window or in the corner of your bedroom.
What is the first scent that comes to your nose when you think of Morocco? For us, it's cinnamon.
That is why we want to show you how great this Morocco reed diffuser would fit into your bedroom. It has a strong scent of red cinnamon, and, it will make your room smell mesmerising for approximately 45 days.
Moreover, if you have a friend who is also a lover of Morocco – this diffuser would be a great gift. It already comes wrapped in a beautiful box.
Yes, yes, blue is the colour you want to go for when decorating your Moroccan bedroom. But, here and there, you have to have a centrepiece – a centrepiece that will stand out but still fit in (if you know what we mean).
We believe that this Thoa Floral Pouffe Ottoman adds a vibrant touch to your bedroom decor with its striking yellow hue and floral pattern, making it distinct from other pieces. Moreover, its opulent appearance helps to unify the entire room, creating a sense of luxury and cohesion.
A room divider is a must. It is a staple in Moroccan culture. You can use it to, as the name suggests, divide the room into two or three different areas. Or you can just use it as a piece of decor.
Either way, the Dharamendra room divider is a fantastic choice for your Moroccan-themed bedroom, offering the perfect balance of vibrant colours and soothing blues. Additionally, its sturdy wooden construction ensures that you won't have to worry about it constantly toppling over.
Moroccan or not, every bedroom needs a rug.
Consider incorporating a Moroccan-inspired rug into your existing Moroccan-themed bedroom to enhance the overall aesthetic. Opt for a rug that complements the colour scheme you've already selected for your room, featuring shades of blue, gold, or even hints of red. However, it's important to maintain a sense of simplicity, ensuring that the rug doesn't overpower the entire space.
And, last but certainly not least – wall art. Moroccans are known for their beautiful art pieces.
Buying an original piece of Moroccan art can be both expensive and challenging, especially if you're not in Morocco. However, don't let that hinder you from achieving a Moroccan-style bedroom. An affordable alternative is opting for a Mandala canvas graphic art piece. These artworks are typically inexpensive and versatile enough to complement any bedroom decor, making them a perfect fit for your Moroccan-themed space.
For a Moroccan bedroom, you can choose from a variety of colour schemes that reflect the vibrant and exotic ambience of Moroccan design. Consider incorporating warm earthy tones such as terracotta, sandy beige, and deep browns as the foundation of your colour palette. These colours evoke the rustic charm of Moroccan landscapes. Complement these earthy hues with bold and rich jewel tones like deep blues, emerald greens, vibrant oranges, and jewel-like purples, which add a touch of opulence and exoticism. Accents of gold and metallic tones can also be used to add a hint of glamour and luxury. Ultimately, aim for a harmonious blend of warm earth tones and vibrant jewel tones to create a captivating Moroccan-inspired colour scheme.
In conclusion, Moroccan-style bedrooms offer an enchanting and immersive experience, transforming your personal sanctuary into a captivating oasis of cultural richness and exotic allure. By embracing vibrant colours, intricate patterns, and luxurious textures, you can infuse your space with the magic of Moroccan design.
From the ornate details of the bed frame to the captivating Moroccan bedding, soft furnishings, and striking home decor elements like lanterns and vases, every aspect contributes to the creation of a genuinely captivating Moroccan-inspired retreat. Let the soothing colour palette and authentic Moroccan touches transport you to a realm of Arabian nights, where relaxation and indulgence await.
With these Moroccan-style bedroom ideas, you can embark on a design journey that seamlessly blends elegance, warmth, and a touch of mystery, ensuring that your bedroom becomes a sanctuary where dreams take flight amidst the opulence and splendour of Morocco.
