Moroccan-inspired decor: interior buys that will add boho vibes to your home

Posted by for Home

Shop authentic Moroccan homewares and Moroccan-inspired buys with our interiors edit.

If you’ve ever visited Morocco, you’ll know that the country is home to a signature interior design style. Part rustic, part bohemian, the look tends to include a mix of warm, earthy tones, bold patterns and lush green plants – and lots of them.

Although it will be a while before we’re able to pick up authentic Moroccan homewares in a souk, it is possible to recreate some of the magic of this decor style in the UK. Choosing the right home accessories are crucial, from traditional Berber-style reds in deep rugs to rattan touches and intricate glass ceiling lamps. 

See below for our favourite Moroccan and Moroccan-inspired pieces that will bring an air of the riad into your home. 

  • Moroccan leather pouffe

    This authentic Moroccan leather pouffe looks beautiful in this natural tone, but interior store Bohemia – which works collaboratively with artisans in Morocco – also stocks the same design in colours including silver, lilac, blue and pink. A contemporary twist on a traditional Moroccan homeware accessory.

  • Green Moroccan glasses

    Founded by Morocco-born Fatim, Bohosouk is a great UK resource for authentic north African homewares. These green Beldi glasses, made from recycled glass and originally used to serve tea, are ethically hand-blown in Morocco.

  • Pendant light

    We love the celestial vibe of this gorgeous light, which mimics the style of glass lampshades sold in souks. The antique brasswork also gives it a vintage feel, which looks even more charming when lit.

  • Recycled crimson cassis rug

    This gorgeous rug is handmade from 165 two-litre plastic bottles, which have been recycled to make a unique piece. It has a rustic look and bohemian feel, with a Berber rug-inspired pattern and contrasting tassels.

  • Nawaal Illustrations art print

    A huge part of styling your home with a Moroccan vibe is maximising on plants, especially those with large palm-like leaves, and investing in a colour scheme of dusty pinks and terracottas. This print by artist Sarah Dahir of Nawaal Illustrations subtly draws on the theme.
