Trend of 2012: Add some Moroccan flair to your space


The 2012 Trend of the Day: 
The Moroccan Tile Motif
What a gem of a motif? With its interocking lines it can make such a gorgeous pattern.  Morroco, the country itself, has been a huge trend over the last couple of years and is only growing in populartiy as a tourist destination.  But if you can't seem to squeeze in a trip to Morroco out of your budget to tour the beautiful land, why don't we just take a little dose of that gorgeous Morrocan tile pattern (aka lattice work) and incorporate it into your house - you'll be glad you did. 
I absolutely love the color combination of these tiles, and the white grout was the perfect selection to showcase this awesome and unique shape.
This fabulous pattern is fun and can be used in any design theme. It can help bring in color, pattern, direction, elegance, spunk, accent and just plain, old fun. You can find it on fabrics for bedding, drapes, pillows, and furniture or use it as the actual tile to put on your fireplace, kitchen backsplash, bathroom floor or shower surround.

Here is a beautiful classic piece upholstered with the
Moroccan tile pattern using a classic color combination.  This example showcases how elegant this pattern can be.

Beautifully framed out gray Moroccan tile to be an accent behind the stove.  A great little accent with the white subway tile.

Amazing shower surround! The euro glass really is perfect to show off that gorgeous tile.

Another great way to showcase this awesome pattern is in a rug.
I love how this rug is so bold and crisp;
it's a clever way to sneak in a pop of color into the room.

 I seriously can't get enough of the moroccan tile pattern.  How are you going to incoporate it into your space in 2012?

  3. Hi Tamara,

    I know, aren't those tiles beautiful! I was hoping to get them for a design project for a client, but sadly we were never able to track down what company they are. If you have any luck let us know, and we'll do the same.

    Thanks!
