STYLIST’S TOP TIPS
Layer floor rugs in contrasting colours with similar pattern styles.
Add interesting texture to your walls. We used Porter’s
Paints French Wash, which gives a gorgeous texture over a base coat of low sheen acrylic paint.
Break up a large room with screen dividers – they can also provide an interesting backdrop. Create a casual hangout zone
on the floor, Moroccan style, with a mix of leather ottomans, cushions and rugs.
Add a couple of handmade embroidered ottomans – they really give a room an authentic Moroccan feel. Many come unstuffed, so you’ll need to do this yourself. Upholstery filling, polystyrene balls, old clothes and newspapers are some options.
Use cushions with over-the-top textures – this makes a space feel cosy and inviting.
Embrace a relaxed vibe with shaggy rugs and piles of soft cushions.
