MYSTIC MOROCCAN SPICE
How to choose the best Moroccan styled rugs and carpets
As the organic Moroccan style features many richly textured fabrics, carpet is the logical flooring choice for creating a Moroccan theme within your home.
Carpet Court’s Dreamtime carpet in Clay is a resilient loop pile nylon carpet which will tie all the elements of the room together. For a rich and bold contrasting floor the Castlerock Stipple colour choice in the Antilles Twist solution dyed nylon carpet range brings an appropriately luxurious finish with its plush, twist fibres.
Neutral floors can be transformed by sumptuous area rugs in typical Moroccan colours and designs, both traditional and contemporary. Add colour and pattern with the City Modern rug in Chevron Rust, or splash out with a stylish rug from the Gemini rug collection such as Kata Modern Red, Loti Multi or Kelim Multi.
Morocco, a warm and wondrous gateway to Africa boasting a Mediterranean climate and vibrant Spanish, African and Portuguese influences. Is it any wonder that the rich historic culture and natural beauty of this colourful country has inspired a popular interior design trend?
Add a dash of spice and a touch of the exotic to your interior style during the cooler months to create a cosy ambience using the Moroccan influences of rich, warm colours such as terracotta, burnt orange, paprika, ochre and earthy golden hues. Blend intricate designs using mosaic and geometric patterns and luxurious textured fabrics for a true Moroccan style home.

How to create the best Moroccan styled floors
Choose warm earthy hues with deep purples and turquoise blues or rich shades of red to create the best Moroccan styled floor. Achieve this with area rugs if you want to keep your base floor relatively neutral.
If you prefer a cool, hardwood floor under foot opt for a timber or laminate floor or even vinyl flooring in warm woodgrain hues. Stockmans Ridge Premium in the popular colours of Spotted Gum or Blackbutt is the perfect flooring base for achieving an authentic Moroccan style floor. The rich, natural hues of Brushed Natural Oak in the Balmain Oak Wideboard timber flooring collection is also an ideal way to blend the earthy warmth of wood with traditional Moroccan shades of tangerine and burnt orange contrasted with cool blues, fresh off-whites, taupes and neutrals along with sumptuously soft and delicious purple tones.
Is a Moroccan-influenced vinyl flooring design a good option?
Cool and clean under foot, vinyl flooring is making a big comeback and is a popular choice for many family homes due to its resilience, affordability and stylish good looks. Perfectly suited to the Moroccan theme, you could blend patterned vinyls with Moroccan-inspired accessories to achieve a cosy atmosphere in chilly climates.
Terracotta indoor plant pots, mosaic-adorned furniture pieces and accessories along with an abundance of sheer and textured fabrics will enhance any vinyl flooring design to complete the Moroccan-influenced look.
