INTERIOR DESIGN FOR YOUR GRANNY FLAT—VOLUME XIV: MOROCCAN STYLE

Do you want to feel rich and luxurious even if you’re living on a budget? Do you want an exotic yet elegant vibe for your granny flat? Then the Moroccan style is the right type of interior design for your granny flat.

Moroccan style interior design is often viewed as a “crossroads of many cultures”, in particular a crossroads of Middle Eastern and Asian culture, and is described in many different ways—rich, luxurious, exotic, elegant, intricate, vibrant and so on.

As the Moroccan style can be described in many different ways, a variety of features can be incorporated when designing and decorating your granny flat to replicate this style. These features include but are not limited to:

· Colourful, patterned and mosaic tiles

· Ornate and plush furniture

· Metalwork

· Gauzy textiles

Colourful and patterned tiles:

Colourful and patterned tiles are crucial for your Moroccan style granny flat in particular mosaics. Using an assortment of various coloured glass, ceramic or marble tiles they are generally used as mirrored frames, plates and other decorative homewares. They can also be used to create a feature for your kitchen and bathroom wall tiles.

Ornate and plush furniture:

The use of ornate and plush furniture will form the fundamentals of your Moroccan style granny flat. The ornate qualities are usually seen in delicately carved wooden furniture. Keep this in mind when you are looking for coffee and side tables, as well as buffets and dining tables. The plush is seen in the upholstery of ottomans and couches. Use bold designs with colour for cushions and throws.

Metalwork:

Metalwork is another Moroccan style interior design staple. Metalwork is usually seen in accessories such as lanterns, vases and mirrors which, for this style, are usually made of copper, brass and silver. Metalwork provides a good contrast to the vibrant, rich colours and provides another source of art in the granny flat.

Gauzy textiles:

Gauzy fabrics are usually used to separate rooms, however they can also be used as canopies, drapes, and frames around mirrors and windows. Like the tiles, gauzy fabrics are usually bright in colour and are patterned.

So there you have it, now you know some key features to include when designing and decorating your granny flat to be a rich, luxurious, exotic and elegant home. If the Moroccan style isn’t for you, then stay tuned for the next blog post on Hollywood Glam style interior design for your granny flat.
