Design Trends: Moroccan Influences

Design trends come and go, but the bold look of the Moroccan design has been trending throughout homes since the sixties. Known for its color, texture, and fluid lines, this design style draws much of its inspiration from the Moorish design of the East and from the shapes and colors of the rolling sands of the desert.

One of the most prominent features in Moroccan design is their use of tile throughout design. In 2014, Design Manager Amy Hinck renovated her own kitchen. You can see in the tile backsplash, it is a very pretty arabesque pattern that pulls in the intricate beauty within Moroccan design. The creamy white colored tile darkens at the edges and is enhanced by the tan/yellow grout. They offer great balance between the white and navy cabinetry.

With a well-versed knowledge in remodeling, Hinck and her husband did most of the work themselves. However, with the help of Castle’s carpenters and labor crew, remaining details including window, beam, cabinets, backsplash and butcherblock counter were installed.

Amy is not alone in loving the beautiful design in the tile. Quite a few of our clients have also chosen Moroccan-inspired touches throughout their projects. Whether it’s in the tiling, choice of bold colors or soft curves throughout the room, all of these homes have a touch of the far East.

This year American Olean Midwest put out a ton of new amazing tile. One collection is heavily influenced by Moroccan designs and we’re simply obsessed.
