I was lucky enough to travel to Morocco two years ago and I have never felt more inspired by the gorgeous, intricate work that the entire culture seems surrounded by. Everywhere you look, there are handmade, craftsman pieces of furniture, tile, metal work and lighting. But the tile just grabbed me by the heart and didn’t let go. Every corner you walk around, you experience the colorful, expressive tile work that covers walls and floors in both the fanciest and the most humble spaces.
Older cultures have many things to offer someone looking for design inspiration. The stunning, hand cut mosaic tiles in Morocco are something that quite a few of my clients reference when they’re hunting for an accent in their bathroom spaces. Often the American version of a Moroccan-inspired mosaic tile has a few less colors in it, but they are no less impactful in the space. My friend Lee at Filmore Clark shows you how a few less colors can make a Moroccan style tile installation a little bit ‘quieter’ but still very rich.Photo courtesy of Filmore Clark
This tile has withstood hundreds of years of dust, heat, and thousands of people walking all over them and yet it is still so beautiful and interesting. What do you think – would you roam around in Morocco? Would you incorporate a Moroccan vibe into your home?
