Moroccan living room designs feature bright, magnetic colors, intricate geometric patterns, plush carpets, lantern lights and comfortable ottomans. Moroccan style inspires you to use bold and extravagant colors for the decor. The geometric patterns and bright accents, large mirrors and glittering surfaces are quite typical for it and add an elegant oriental touch to the interior. When you design your living room in this style you need to select a background color but you need to know that neutral colors are not appropriate. Choose something bold – warm yellow or burnt oranges, turquoise or cyan in order to create the Mediterranean touch. Do not hesitate to fill the room with rich decor in contrasting colors and heavy patterns, if you want to achieve an authentic look. Curtains, bows, arches and keyhole windows and other elements of the classical architecture in the Middle East and will give the living room an authentic appeal.
