Carved and ornate wooden sideboards, plush and bright-colored cushions and seat covers, and walls draped in hot red, mellow orange and lovely yellow; the Moroccan dining room allows you to express yourself in an unabashed fashion! If the contemporary dining room with a muted gray backdrop always felt far too boring, then try out this outlandish style this spring and you will surely fall in love with it. Wooden dining tables with a traditional bend and matching chairs feel apt in such settings, but mid-century icons like the Tulip table also work surprisingly well.
There are times when the kitchen in the backdrop or the living room in the foreground brings color to the Scandinavian dining space with banquette. All you need to do here is repeat the dominant hue of the living area or the kitchen in the dining space, but with subtlety and discretion. Pendant lighting above the corner banquette and additional chairs around the dining table can also add color to the classy Scandinavian space.
Red coupled with black is a timeless showstopper that works even in these affluent dining rooms, but feel free to experiment with different shades of red ranging from seductive scarlet to fascinating fuchsia to find the ideal hue for your dream dining room. Once again, it is important to remember that this not just about walls alone, and decor, accessories and drapes in red come together to create a richer and more appealing setting.
In fact, we can see this exact strategy below, thanks to these aqua, grey and navy Embossed Ceramic Bowls from Urban Outfitters. You’re free to purchase just one, but don’t they look fabulous in a set?! Many of today's top product photos feature pastel items set against a rich-toned backdrop, and this Set of 4 Bloom Plates from Crate & Barrel couldn‘t be more striking on the dark wooden tabletop below. Watercolor style is alive and well, and the four different color palettes presented in the design of the plates are the perfect way to add variety to your tabletop.
If there is one style that is a wonderful amalgamation of varied cultures, traditions, nuances and diverse backdrops, then it is surely Moroccan. A constant influx of ever-changing Asian, European, Middle Eastern and, of course, African influences has turned Morocco into a cultural crucible of sorts where all of these drastically different elements intermingle and coexist in a seamless fashion. Carrying with it an air of exotic opulence, timeless beauty and the magic of the Saharan landscape, this is a decorating style that is perfect for the unique and exquisite dining room.
