After the wonderful exhibition of the Lázaro Galdiano Museum Foundation, in coordination with the one exposed in the Alhambra Museum, on the fabrics of the Spanish Nasrid period, I have been so impressed, that I have decided to give an Arab touch to today's entrance.
The closest thing we have now is the classic moroccan design. In rural Morocco located in the far north of Africa, melting pot of religions and cultures ranging from Arabic, Roman, Spanish and African, among others, the interior design is reflected in rooms with warm colors, rich fabrics and earthy textures that come together to create an exotic and very luxurious aesthetic.
The spices They are a source of popular inspiration for Moroccan interior design. The colors should be rich and bright, as well as your exotic foods. The influence is derived from spices such as cinnamon, curry and nutmeg, which results in earthy reds, oranges and yellows, accompanied by gold and silver that evoke a richness in its design.
Many of the patterns and textures found here come from the mixture of Eastern and European cultures. Earthy, with aged woods, rough plaster walls, long and luxurious tapestries, hanging from the ceiling to the floor, and large, clinking cushions that give an exotic charm to an ancient culture. Fabrics should be bright and colorful, bright, in the richest tones. Natural fiber carpets to soften and provide a contrast of the colors brighter.
The mosaics of tiles (specifically those of the Muslim era) and rustic furniture are hallmarks of this area. Also, the use of natural elements, the use of wicker baskets and exotic plants to decorate a room, or the camel bone and metal frames They are common in decorative objects.
Many of the houses in Morocco have structural designs such as columns, doors wrought iron and doors with arches. Often inside wrought iron doors appear to separate or delimit spaces are a great idea.
Do you like the moroccan decoration? Do not miss the exhibition "In the light of silk. Nasrid fabrics in Spain", in the Alhambra Museum (Granada) and the Lázaro Galdiano Foundation (Madrid), they are worth it.
