Moroccan Style Decorating Ideas Take A Trip By Changing Rooms

Moroccan style decorating ideas for jazzing up your whole house or just a room or two. To me, nothing says exotic like a Moroccan motif. While personally I love the bright colors and draping materials in some of these Moroccan style decorating ideas, you can select only a couple colors. You could even just use more muted colors and work on texture. Like this white on white design.

Re Purposing Old Furniture Moroccan Style Decorating Ideas

Re-purpose old furniture found at yard sales or thrift stores – an economical way to get the Moroccan Style look without spending a small fortune on new furniture. I think the aged look of old furniture adds to the uniqueness of the piece when you are finished.

Stenciling techniques explained

Fun and easy to learn, stenciling is one of my favorites. As a designer and decorative painter of children’s furniture, I have used various decorative painting techniques and stenciling. I often combine stenciling with other techniques. It adds a great deal of versatility to the designs that you create. Stenciling most often shows up on walls, for the purpose of this article, I am going to explain how I use stenciling when creating a unique and colorful piece of hand painted furniture.

The First Step

The first step is to prepare the furniture through sanding and base coating the wood with a good primer. The example I’m going to use is the step stool I created for a small child which I call “Night Frog”. I decided that this stool should be very colorful and suitable for a boy or girl. I sanded and primed the legs of the stool, but since I planned to stain the top of the stool black, I only sanded the top. Once this initial preparation was finished, I selected the colors for the stool, stained the top black and painted each leg a bright color-lime green, yellow, orange and fuchsia with black accents.

I totally love how the patterns of the lights play across the room in this wild Moroccan themed room don’t you?
Rich teal walls, Moroccan lanterns and a dramatic headboard made from a pair of antique carved wooden panels makes this a vibrant retreat.
