A taste of Morocco

It seems everyone’s into Morocco at the moment. I have to admit, it’s not a style I’m naturally drawn to, but I can definitely see why it appeals to so many.

The Moroccan look is nothing if not eye-catching – flamboyant, highly patterned, multicoloured. It has a richness and a history that speaks of its cultural North African roots.

I was in Marrakech in 2010 and, looking back over the photos, probably a quarter of them showed nothing but gorgeous design work.

Although difficult to replicate in Britain without looking cheesy, I think it can work really well in a bathroom in particular. And there’s an odd Victorian cross-over going on, which could hint at a fusion look in an old town house.

What do you think?
