The Dark Arts: Get the look with Moroccan accessories
With the darker months now in full swing, it’s time to embrace being indoors and what better way than to transform one of your living spaces into a warm, dark hug of a room? Dark interiors are right on-trend at the moment, with no sign of the appetite for moody boudoirs and opulent living rooms waning. And clever Moroccan inspired accessories will bring out the mood even more.

 

Dark living room with Moroccan style rug

Typically, we’ve always been told that light colours open up a space, but if you have a small dark room already no amount of bright white paint is going to solve your problem. Instead embrace the darkness – introducing a dark colour onto walls, ceilings, features or floorboards in a small space will actually enhance its cosiness.

The best way to complement your newly transformed dark space is to add colourful accessories. Dark walls accentuate vibrant hues and Moroccan home accessories are abundant in colour. Clashing colours - such as oranges against blues or yellows against charcoals – often look more expensive and sophisticated than when placed against lighter walls and furnishings.

 

Dark painted bedroom with Moroccan cushions

Moody bedrooms
The Moroccans know all about creating sumptuous bedrooms. Off-set dusky tones with piles of jewel-coloured Berber wool cushions or soft Sabra silk cushions for a truly luxurious look and feel.

 

Dark painted living room with Azilal rug

Decadent living rooms
Don't be afraid to go all-out to create an opulent living room. Paint walls and ceilings in a dark colour and introduce a contrasting, monochrome Beni Ouarain rug to finish off your bold statement.

 

 

Home office with Kilim rug

Cosy workspaces
A cosy, snug study or home office can be a dream retreat for getting some work done, especially on grey days. Why not experiment with panting one feature wall dark and adding a patterned Kilim rug to create a sophisticated workspace.

 

 

Dark bathroom with Moroccan bathmat

Inviting bathrooms
Bring out your bathroom’s inner-spa by opting for dark walls and ceiling. Lit with soft lighting or candles, your bathroom will be a dream to retreat to after a long day. Add in a black & white Moroccan bathmat to enhance your look further.
