News > Ethno styles: Morocco. Moroccan style of an interior through Tatiana Antonchenko's eyes.

Originated around the 16th and 17th centuries.

Morocco has always been an international country. And the Moroccan style - is one of the most exotic mixes of several cultural layers - Mauritian, Arabic, Berber. And European.

Romans, Spaniards, Englishmen - all of them left traces of their culture here, but the strongest influence was of the French. Exactly due to French architects and designers that this concept itself - the Moroccan style - exists today.

However, this is by no means is reflected in the imposition of European architectural canons, it is an organic synthesis of European and North African elements. Though the most important thing that tied together Eastern and European culture - is the colour palette of North Africa, adopted by French designers.

The Moroccan style involves an unexpected variety of design: from naive to refined, with symbols and patterns repeated in various forms, with ancient traditions of interior decoration. The use of this style will be equally appropriate in a luxurious mansion and a simple home.

The main requirement for creating an interior in this style should be improvisation and bold usage of material possibilities. If you want to create coziness and to bring refined exotic in interiors of your house (and not only) try to use the Moroccan style, and you will not be disappointed.

The Moroccan style - is relevant worldwide, it may be found in homes of famous people in Europe, America or Australia. It firmly holds a leading position, is easily recognizable and becomes very popular, especially in the entertainment industry, for example in interior design of restaurants, bars.

The Moroccan style is characterized by a bold mix of colours and textures of materials. In modern Moroccan interior perfectly coexist complicated ornaments of local peoples, style of nomads, bordering with rudeness and European finishing materials and furniture. This combination creates a unique flavour and gives special charm to an interior in the Mauritian style.

Also this style stands out for its colour scheme, which, without fear, combines warm tones of beige and sand, white and blue, which may border with ultramarine and emerald-green, and the emphasis may be placed on red. The main thing is to create a game of colour, which should act excitingly, which will give an interior impulsiveness, which is typical for this country.
