Feb. 23, 2009 - PRLog -- Tired of looking at the same  bedroom, same dining room and same living room again and again? Then it’s time  for a change. This time to not just change the furniture or the color of your  home, rather go for a completely different look. Decorating your home in  Moroccan style is the latest trend these days. Morocco is like a melting pot of  different cultures and styles and so the Moroccan style décor will have some of  the features of every culture and style. One can even see hints of Arabic style  in it.
 Moroccan home décor can be  classified into two types – urban Moroccan decor and rural Moroccan decor. The  urban décor involves the use of ceramics, metal, wood and leather. On the other  hand, the rural décor has more of the Middle Eastern influence, with an  emphasis on the use of rugs, fabrics and embroideries. The best feature of  having a Moroccan style decoration is that the objects used in it are usually those  that have use in practical life too. Given below are some tips that will help  you in decorating your home in the Moroccan style.
 Moroccan Style Decorating Ideas
 Use of Bright Colors
When decorating your home Moroccan  style, make sure to use bright natural colors. The colors like green and blue,  found in the sea of the area, and the ones like gold and yellow, found in the  surrounding desert, should be used as much as possible. You can combine other  colors like vibrant red, orange or purple with blue or gold to create an effervescent  ambience. Feel free to use of vibrant colors such as pink fuchsia, lavender, and  orange while keeping the aesthetics in mind.  
Bring Nature Home
For creating the tropical  atmosphere seen in Morocco, you can make extensive use of plants. The more  exotic the plants, the better look they will bring to your house. At the same  time, they will also provide you with some greenery in the ‘concrete-jungle’  world of today. If it is feasible, you can also get textured walls.
Lighting plays a very important  role in adding that perfect Moroccan flavor look to your home décor. Moroccan  light fixtures are totally different from those used in the other parts of the  world. Moroccan light fixtures include Moroccan sconces, Moroccan chandeliers,  Moroccan lanterns, Moroccan hanging pendants, and Moroccan lamps. A great source  for quality handmade Moroccan light fixtures as well as Moorish lighting is a  California company called Saint Tropez Boutique that design and handcrafts  Moroccan light fixtures in Casablanca, Morocco and exclusively distributes them  in the U.S.A. The reason why I like Saint Tropez Boutique because they are  unique Moroccan light fixtures designs, plus they handcrafted from top quality  Moroccan solid brass that has been carved into refined and intricate patterns.  Addition to that Saint Tropez Boutique is the exclusive dealer in the U.S.A  that has Moroccan light fixtures pre-wired for the UL-Standard (pre-wired for  the U.S Standard wiring).

Extensive Use of Textures
Moroccans love extensive use of  textures in their home. So, if you want to have a Moroccan style look, rule out  too much use of smooth and sleek materials. In fact, the fusion of multiple  textures and shapes will be best. You can have darkened wood plank floors,  which can be covered with natural fiber rugs of sand-ish color. This will not  only add texture to the room, but also provide you with some comfort under the  feet. You can also try draping fabric from the ceiling.
Some Other Tips
 Colorful mosaic tables not only  give a Moroccan feel to your place, but also help to brighten up a dull room.
 Use of handmade Moroccan tiles will  go a long way in creating a Moroccan décor.
 Use of Moroccan tent as a  Moroccan lounge getaway in your own backyard.
 Use of Moroccan wood lattice  screens also known as Jali Screens in your windows doors, kitchen and bath cabinet  doors, or even as a room divider wall
Last but not the least, you can  buy silk bedcovers or cushion covers, in jewel tones, to create that perfect  Moroccan look.
