Desert dreams: Moroccan inspired bedrooms

Your bedroom should be a sanctuary that you retreat to at the end of a long, hard day. It should be serene, calm, comfortable and inviting. Moroccan bedrooms are the epitome of all these things. From layers of bedspreads, to rugs, cushions and ornate lanterns, the Moroccans know what they’re doing when it comes to creating luxurious bedrooms.

Think Moroccan interiors and you’ll instantly imagine the earthy colours often used in everything from soft furnishings, to walls, to rugs. These deep, rich hues are perfect for creating a warm and inviting environment and conjure up visions of balmy north African nights.

But if these ruby tones aren’t to your taste, there’s a subtler alternative to achieving a Moroccan inspired bedroom. White walls, bedding and rugs, paired with accessories in either neutral tones or flashes of colour, will give you a luxurious yet soothing look and feel.  

If you’re going the whole way with your Moroccan inspired bedroom, why not introduce a touch of tadelakt plaster? Often used in Moroccan inspired bathrooms, a tactile tadelakt wall can be a stunning feature within your bedroom. And don’t forget to add a beautiful intricate screen and some ornate lanterns for a truly Moroccan look.

For just a hint of Morocco, you could simply introduce a few accessories such as rugs, cushions and storage baskets.

Whatever your approach, if you’re looking to inject some luxe into your sleeping quarters, here’s how to get the Moroccan look...


Let the luxury start at floor level by introducing one of our traditional Azilal rugs, hand-knotted using the softest wool. Or opt for a generous-piled Beni Ouarain rug for a gorgeous feeling underfoot.

A little pile of these soft or ruby-hued pouffes create a sense of luxury and comfort, and we think they just beg to be lounged upon.

Cushions are an essential addition to any Moroccan inspired bedroom. Scatter them on your bed or place a couple on an armchair. We love our Sabra cushions – made from cactus silk – and our Boucherouite cushions which bring a modern splash of colour.
