When my Mom went on a photography tour of Morocco a few years ago, I thought she’d bring back pictures stereotypically rich and opulent and taj-mahal-y…..
Instead what she brought back kind of took my breath away…..
The place and its people were beautiful…..
and utterly care free…..
The unending creativity in using arabesques, ogee arches, tile and color in their architecture was amazing to me as a designer…..
So whenever I have the opportunity, I travel back to Morocco to explore the opportunities for Moroccan tile in the home.
Here are some of my favorite ideas…..
An earthy tile for a backsplash, works well with a country provincial feel in a kitchen….
But “Moroccan” is just not arabesques and arches – it is also color…..
This Moroccan tile in a kitchen could also work great in a bath (maybe an ogee arch framing the tub?).
Using solid tiles to wainscot the walls, and mixing it with the curvilinear stuff on the floor is yet another possibility…..
But keeping it simple and spare, with a sexy Moroccan chandelier in the corner, is equally fair game…..
Might have to go to Morocco myself someday…..
