And finally we have reached the end of our journey in the fascinating field of interior decorations. This field is in a continuous change and development, therefore, our classification is never over. Maybe even at this moment, a creative mind comes up with a new style that will revolutionize the aesthetics and other sub-genres will emerge from there.
Moroccan interior design invites the rich colors of the Middle East, dynamic contrasts, traditional patterns, and the uniqueness of Moroccan decorations and accessories into your home. Vibrant colors of red and rich orange inspired by African sunsets, green and blue found in the shimmering Mediterranean, tones of gold, light brown, yellow and silver from the surrounding desert create a tropical atmosphere by bringing each element into the home. Exotic plants, terra cotta tiles and textured walls all tie the experience and atmosphere together. Small tiles and mosaic designs decorate many Moroccan home interiors. Mosaic designs are also used for decorating Moroccan mirrors, coffee table tops and bathroom sinks. Moroccan furniture and accessories encompass natural materials of wool, silk, glass, leather, clay and metal, such as: Moroccan wool rugs; carved wood furniture and accessories; bright decorative cushions made of cotton, wool or silk fabrics; Moroccan bedding and floor rugs; soft rich decorative curtains; and unique Moroccan lamps made of ceramic, leather, glass or forged metal.
The quickest way to incorporate Moroccan interior design is by using bright and colorful wool rugs or thin large rugs with traditional geometric patterns. A few leather ottomans, or Moroccan poufs, and soft large cushions made of soft decorative fabrics add comfort to Moroccan interior design. Use elegant silk for decorating with curtains. Bring in bright rich room paint colors and ethnic patterns, soft luxurious home decorating fabrics, floor rugs and pillows. Traditional Moroccan interior design brings crafty Moroccan lamps and skillfully carved wood elements for Moroccan furniture, doors, windows and mirror frames. The aroma of African cuisine and tea with spices stimulates all human senses, adds the final touch, and evokes Moroccan home decor.
Indian style. According to the specialists, a great way to get ideas for your color palette is to look at the warm spices from India. These rich colors reflect the vibrancy of the country. For example, the following provide great color palettes: curry powder, turmeric, cardamom, garam masala, and cumin. They look great next to crisp white. Stick to deep, burnt shades rather than bright, bold colors for a warm look. In addition to beautiful silks and fabrics, you could integrate pattern and textured finishes into your space. Tiles and mosaic tiles could be used, or simply hang fabric on your wall and this would act as part of your artwork. There are also numerous wallpapers available in ranges that suit this concept so take the time to look and mull it over. Paisley is often seen in Indian-styled patterns. A polished concrete floor works great in modern, contemporary Indian interior design. Tiles, marble, and granite floors are traditionally found in Indian homes and you could also use a dark stained, timber floor.
There are a wide variety of accessories and furniture available that bring aspects of India into your home. Statues of Hindu Gods and Goddesses made from bronze, brass, wood or gold look fantastic placed around an Indian styled room. Elephants and deities of Buddha also add personality to your theme but as with all concepts, be careful to not over style your room.
Dark, solid wooden furniture will really help to get this concept on the right track. Look for some interesting carved artwork or full panels for your space.
Art Nouveau interior design. This movement began seeding its roots as early as the 1890’s among those looking to shift from the heavy Victorian era of decorating. The design elements of Art Nouveau mainly include: Hardwood, both stained and varnished, normally covered with an oriental or colorful rug and Tiffany lamps and stained glass windows both create and add to the Art Nouveau atmosphere; colors are a personal choice as long as it’s kept fairly light and intriguing: sage greens, browns, mustards, and lilacs. The look and furniture incorporates stylized flowers, leaves, buds and roots like those shown in the images below.
What we have approached in our five-episode series represent the main patterns that have influenced interior design throughout the ages. Almost each of the has a sub-style derived from it, which doesn’t display the entire palate of characteristics, but mixes them with at least another similar style, if the circumstances allow an elegant and commonsensical combination.
It is up to you and your personal preferences which one you chose to adorn your personal space, according to your possibilities. Good luck in making the best choices!
