The colors to choose: Bolder the better
Gem tones create an elegant atmosphere that’s Moroccan approved. Aim for jewel tone blues, ruby reds, or ripened dark oranges to make a full impact and appeal. This beautiful kitchen above uses our Moroccan Green and Blue Arabesque Vinyl Peel and Stick Tile here to create a space that is mesmerizing.
One of the most important aspects of Moroccan inspired interior design is the use of bold, rich colors. These colors are often seen in traditional Mediterranean textiles and patterns. When choosing tiles, paint colors or fabrics for your space, look for deep jewel tones like ruby red, sapphire blue, and emerald green. They add a depth and dimension to a space that is seductive and beautiful.
The Patterns To Consider: Intricate & Exotic
Another way to add a touch of Morocco to your home? Consult patterns, and more patterns. One key element of Moroccan-inspired design is the use of intricate and exotic patterns.
Our Sea Glass Cloud Platinum White Mosaic Tile is the perfect embodiment of Mediterranean design in this gorgeous bathroom.
These patterns can be found on everything from traditional Moroccan rugs to traditional ceramic tiles and furniture fabric. Look for patterns that are both outrageously eye-catching and detailed, such as those with geometric shapes or floral designs.

The Materials and Fabrics to eye: Luxurious, and Lush
When it comes to Mediterranean-inspired interior design, the materials and fabrics you use are just as important as the colors and patterns. Look for luxurious fabrics like silk or velvet, and rich materials like handmade ceramics, wood look tiles, and metals. These elements will help to create a space that feels both opulent and comfortable. The key is to mix and match different elements to create a look that is uniquely your own.
There's nothing like coming home to a cozy, inviting living room. And what could be more welcoming than a luxurious blue velvet chair and a chic fireplace tile?

We love how the tile creates a focal point while still allowing the rest of the room to shine. Talk about making a statement without saying a word!
To get a taste of Morocco into your home, tiles are always the way to go. After all, they are one of the oldest materials!
They can be used on both the floors and the walls, and come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and materials. When choosing tiles for your space, look for those that are colorful and elegantly designed. You can also use more muted colors like blush pink or golden yellow. Just make sure to stay away from anything too bright or neon.
When it comes to Mediterranean interior design, there is one element that always stands out: bold patterned mosaic ceramic tiles. These vibrant and eye-catching tiles are often used to create stunning backsplashes, floors, and walls. And while they may seem like a bit of a challenge to work with, they can actually be quite versatile. With its bold patterns and bright colors, this kitchen is proof that mosaic tiles are the perfect way to add a touch of Moroccan flair to your home.
And don't forget about backsplash tiles and kitchen tiles - these are perfect for adding a little exotic flair to your space. So go ahead and get creative with your tile choices - with so many options available, the possibilities are endless!
For The Furniture
When it comes to Moroccan inspired interior design, the furniture you use is just as important as the other elements at play. Look for pieces that are both comfortable and stylish. Choose furniture that is made from rich, luxurious materials like wood and metal. And add plush rugs and cushions to create a space that is truly inviting (more about this below!). It’s okay to mix-and-match also! The beauty of these homes are their perfectly imperfect styles.
For The Floor: Rugs and Carpets and Tiles

For The Design Details: Lanterns, Vases, and Accessories
Bathrooms are often seen as being functional spaces rather than places to be stylish, but there's no reason why your bathroom can't be both practical and stylish. One way to add style to your bathroom is to install patterned floor tiles like our Moroccan Star and Cross Black Tiles. Patterned tiles can help to create a visually stunning space, and they can also be used to complement other design elements in the room. These tiles are perfect for creating a Bohemian-inspired bathroom design!
Looking to add a touch of Morocco to your home décor? Bold accessories are key! Look for lanterns, vases, and other pieces that make a statement (like statement floor tiles).
Choose items that are both colorful and well-designed with a bit of eclectic flair. And don't be afraid to mix and match different colors and patterns to create a truly unique space.
From vibrant reds to rich blues, Eastern design is all about bold, beautiful colors, as we’re sure you caught on to by now. Make sure to have fun with it! And when in doubt, add more lanterns. You can never have too many lanterns.
For The Finishing Touches: Plants and Flowers
Blue and white is always a classic color combination, but it can sometimes feel a little bland. However, when used in a Bohemian-inspired setting, the two colors come alive. The blue adds a touch of exoticism, while the white keeps things feeling chic and subtle. We love the way that our Blue and White Star and Cross tile looks as a backsplash in this outdoor kitchen. The tile's design perfectly complements the plants and other elements in the space. Plus, the tile's blue color helps to bring out the bohemian flair of the setting.
Plants and flowers are the perfect finishing touches for a Mediterranean inspired space. They can help to add a touch of color and life to your room. Choose plants that are bold and vibrant, and arrange them in beautiful vases or baskets. Fresh flowers are also a great way to add a touch of luxury to your space.
With these tips, you can easily bring the exotic beauty of Morocco into your home through interior design. Just remember to have fun with it and add your own personal touch to make the space truly your own. Bohemian-inspired interior design is all about bold colors, patterns, and materials.
