Nothing gives a sense of wellbeing like a soothing spa-inspired bathroom. Once reserved for the most straightforward of ablutions, the bathroom is now a space you can retreat to for pampering purposes. For a bathroom that feels like a spa, look no further than Moroccan-inspired interior finishes and accessories. Here’s how to get the look…Tadelakt
Tadelakt, a traditional Moroccan plaster technique, can be applied to internal or external walls and is ideal for bathrooms and wet rooms because of its waterproof properties. Despite its relatively recent rise of popularity in Western wet rooms, tadelakt has been used in Morocco for centuries with artisans passing the traditional technique from one generation to another.
Originally used by the Berbers to waterproof their underground drinking water cisterns, tadelakt subsequently became the plaster of choice to decorate exterior and interior walls in the wealthiest Moroccan homes. The word ‘tadelakt’ comes from ‘dalaka’ in Arabic which means to caress or massage – and you can see why when you stroke its incredibly tactile, soft-to-the-touch surface.
Just to add to the feel-good factor, it’s an eco-friendly, natural, lime-based product that doesn't contain any harsh chemicals. Pigments can be added to it so you can achieve soothing colours with gorgeous depth. And it does away with grouting that can attract grime and mould over time.
