Over the Christmas holidays, I started to think that that maybe I’d like to create a Moroccan styled guest room. Mel started me off with talk of Moroccan lights. Then I began noticing lots of pillow covers with Moroccan prints. And then I got excited about blowing up some photos from my trip to the spice market in Istanbul. In my mind, it was all going to tie together so nicely.
But in the two weeks I daydreamed about this, I became completely, 100% sick of all things Moroccan. Have you noticed how it’s EVERYWHERE at the moment?! Everywhere! I’m over it already, which obviously means it’s not a decorating style I should be introducing into my home! Also, Morocco isn’t even a country on my ‘to visit’ list. I’m not sure what I was thinking.
But so my research doesn’t go to waste, I thought I’d share my little mood boards anyway. It was a nice daydream while it lasted.

I’ve certainly loved the Moroccan theme from time to time. (I bought some lovely lanterns etc years ago as my 40th had a Moroccan theme and I had a belly dancer etc….)
At the moment I’m into modern with a touch of retro – I like clean lines… minimalist. Kinda!
Oh no! Morocco is an amazing place to go. It is an absolute delight even if you don’t do a room in Moroccan style!
I know you loved it there. I guess it’s not like I don’t EVER want to go. But there’s just so many more places that I’d LOVE to go even more.
Ooh, I love ur spice pics. I am too indecisive to do a room up in one complete theme. I think you could use elements (like linen/a cushion etc) to give hints of morocco without going over the top.
Mmm, I agree. I think themed rooms are maybe a bit ott.
