After a whirlwind trip to Marrakesh this past summer, I came back inspired and rejuvenated by earthy colors, intricately detailed design, natural textiles and bold accent pieces. Here are a few finds that remind me of the beautiful country of Morocco. — Morgan from Pepper Design Blog
These pillows are some of my favorites. I love the look of hand-screened block printing, and the repetitive floral pattern is a nice rest for the eyes.
Moroccan poufs are a favorite trend of mine, and I brought one of these beauties home from Morocco — in yellow, too!
This particular lantern is just beautiful and is in one of my favorite, open-top shapes. The geometric diamond pattern adds a modern touch to a beautiful design.
Moroccan Berber rugs in a classic diamond pattern have been favorites of mine for as long as I can remember. How stunning would that Moroccan flair be in a modern space?
The peacock coloring and beautiful jacquard print make this a unique pillow for a sofa set or chair. Morocco is full of beautiful roaming peacocks, and the colors that they inspire are stunning.
These remind me of the beautiful Moroccan lanterns that hung high in the souks when I was traveling. The style is grandiose, but the shape and gold sheen are brilliant.
These intricately painted handles would look beautiful on a set of white drawers or even a richly saturated piece of furniture. And how stunning would it be if that piece of furniture were placed in front of a turquoise glass tiled wall? Sigh.
The stenciled and detailed walls in northern Africa are beautiful. Here is a similar design that reflects the architecture of Morocco and adds a pop of bold design to a space.
Bring on the bright colors this fall and winter! There's nothing like a bit of sunshine to lift a cool-weather mood. These cheery tones remind me of the spice bags in Marrakesh.
The shape of and rustic wood material on this bed frame are fantastic. The high arches common in Morocco are my favorite.
Moroccan wedding blankets are stunning works of art, and incorporating that unique detail and style in the form of a throw pillow is the perfect nod towards the style in a modern living room.
I love the structural detail of these stools and would use them as side tables or perching places for pots in a sun room.
Moroccan lanterns belong in glorious bunches, and these would look beautiful surrounding one large light.
Every room can benefit from a small dash of old-world style, and this particular throw brings in that rich red, detailed pattern and cozy vibe.
These pillows remind me of the rich dyes that can be found in the souks of Marrakesh. I love the stunning colors.
The delicate detail outlining these candles adds a feminine, global touch to a table or dresser.
This quilt set reminds me of textiles from Marrakesh: rich in color, full of detail and with a handmade quality.
The kilim style of flat weave rugs from Morocco is a close second to the natural Berber rugs that I love so much. I would love a kilim in this colorway for my hallway.
This fantastic stool offers a bit of tribal design on midcentury modern legs in a color that's perfect for fall.
