Love this living room

  • Conjure up an Eastern-inspired mood by mixing block prints with chevrons, on-trend ikat and tessellating diamond designs.
  • Prevent this scheme from becoming too tonal by adding a warm burnt-orange feature wall to contrast with a pale linen sofa.
  • Filter sunlight with wooden fretwork shutters and lightweight sheer curtains.
  • Get creative with finishing touches – use hexagonal, Moroccan-style tiles as coasters, and transform rattan lanterns into hanging gardens by filling them with trailing plants.

 

Good Idea

Using fabrics from the same collection will allow you to combine patterns of varying proportions while keeping the look cohesive and harmonious.

 

Styling Tip

Create a comfortable, souk-inspired feel with relaxed beanbags, large fl oor cushions and a block-print kilim rug.

Decorating with Moroccan shades

Hot Paprika - This uplifting colour sits between red and orange on the spectrum. Stick to earthy tones to keep it looking sophisticated.

Toasted Coconut - Temper the intensity of spicy hues with soft layers of calming oatmeal and parchment. Add some accents of white for a bright and breezy result.

 

Modern Metallics

Stylish gold notebooks and brass accessories give a desk area a touch of glamour.

 

Tile Style 

Sponge paint in a copper shade over an ornate stencil to create a mosaic e ect inspired by medina floors.

 

Global Fusion

Begin with a base of sandy neutral tones, and then turn up the heat with fl ashes of on-trend coral. Mix and match exotic designs, then add worn wood and a curated collection of lanterns and accessories for a look that’s full of depth, texture and character.
