Moroccan Monochrome

There’s a timeless elegance about the monochrome look. Whether you just add it to a section of a room, or dedicate an entire space or even your whole house to it, it’s a bold yet versatile style statement unlike any other. We love it because it’s a look you can easily achieve with Moroccan inspired accessories. Here's how...

Moroccan rugs
Make a statement with a striking black and white rug. Our traditionally woven Aït Bouguemez rugs have been hand-loomed by Berber women in a cooperative of Aït Bouguemez in Morocco using the finest virgin wool.

Or opt for the ‘king of carpets’; a Beni Ouarain rug is considered to be the most desirable by those in the know due to their generous pile and pearlescent sheen.

With a muted background and stylised monochrome detail, it’s little wonder that Beni Ouarain carpets were favoured by renowned modernist designers such as Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto.

Cushions & pouffes

To complement your rugs, add a touch of monochrome to your sofas and chairs with a black & white Sabra cushion. Or up the comfort levels with a sumptuous Beni Ouarain pouffe.

Little accessories
There’s nothing like a pop of colour to lift a monochrome interior. Whether it’s orange, yellow, pink or teal blue, bringing in an extra colour in small doses makes your look all the more striking and adds a contemporary touch. We love these little bowls and treasure boxes which are perfect for dotting around the house to store small items.

Checked bowls - £10

 

Black & white bathrooms
If you’re not fully ready to embrace going monochrome in one of your living spaces, why not try it in the bathroom for a chic and modern look? Pair black and white tiles or Moroccan tadelakt plaster with beautiful hand-woven bathmats and storage baskets.
