By Reda Yamani - MoroccanBazaar.com
With several official languages, Morocco is a crossroad of many cultures and styles.
Often used as a source of inspiration for painters, writers and hippies, Morocco can be seen as a captivating oasis. The Moroccan style is now hot in the US, imposing its magic in the exclusive pueblo designed homes of Santa Fe including California and its introduction into New York.
Here are some basics for creating the Moroccan touch to your home, loft or apartment.
- Look for the vibrant colors red, green and blue found in the sea of the area and also gold, yellow, and silver from the surrounding desert.
- Create a tropical atmosphere by bringing the outside indoors by using exotic plants, terra cotta tiles, and (if approved by your landlord ) textured walls.
- Moroccan home accents and the world famous Moroccan light fixtures. These can be found in either table or free standing to hanging styles.
Moroccan light fixtures are unique from any other country in the world. Handcrafted in the crowded Medina of Marrakech light fixtures are the pride of the artisans that skillfully carve them while surrounded by snake charmers and the smell of market spices.
Whether your ambition is to create a complete Moroccan style or just have a Moroccan touch, lanterns will ad that unique Moroccan element to your home.
Moroccan lanterns can be viewed and purchased through Moroccan Bazaar.com in different styles ranging from stained glass to a choice of candles and light bulbs.
