Intricate patterns, arched ceilings and warm tones give Moroccan architecture its distinct characteristics. This architectural style is known for giving homes a rich, exotic and inviting appearance. A wonderful example of how Moroccan features provide homes with a whole new look can be seen in our Glassworks Remodel project.
This project involved making several changes to a home by giving it a Moroccan-themed design. The home’s outdoor area now has an exterior living space that features several sitting areas and a gas fireplace for added warmth and relaxation. The Moroccan touches that were incorporated into this area include a ceiling covered with an intricate design in warm tones and a stone fireplace in shades of brown that reaches from floor to ceiling. A simple floor with large, plain tiles gives the area an elegant look and a bit of contrast to the brighter furniture and ceiling colors. Exposed dark wood beams and skylights over the outdoor kitchen and dining areas provide an airy, upscale look. The outdoor kitchen area also has warm wood cabinets and a decorative hanging light fixture that adds an even more exotic touch to the space. Accents, such as colored glass lanterns, also keep the Moroccan theme going throughout the outdoor living area.
Moroccan architecture also includes other features that can be used in homes, such as tiled, arched ceilings done in warm hues, stone columns and intricately carved wooden doorways. Tiles and textiles featuring geometric patterns can also add some Moroccan flair to homes. Warm tones in shades of orange, red, brown and yellow are used extensively in this type of architecture.
