It's time to spice things up with patterns, colours and textures galore!

Want to take your home from basic and bland to exotic and elegant? A Moroccan style bedroom will do the trick! With a lovely mix of materials from timber to metal and fun embellishments like pom poms and greenery, you’ll feel like you’re in an overseas oasis in no time.

The best thing about Moroccan style is that it’s very versatile. So you can completely overhaul your bedroom by redesigning it from the ground up, or you can add to what you’ve got with a few cushions and carefully curated decor pieces. Whatever you choose, have fun with it!

Are you ready to be inspired? Let your imagination run wild with these #+ Moroccan bedroom ideas.

1. Instagram fabulous

Channel the vibes of the classic Instagram-famous Marrakesh resorts with copious quantities of white and teal. Just because this style is found overseas doesn’t mean you can’t bring it home! Take inspiration from the colour palette, woven light covers, patterned tiles, burnished metals and hand-crafted elements.

2. Rattan details

There’s a reason why rattan is so popular at the moment – it’s extremely versatile. You can use it in nearly any kind of bedroom, from Hampton’s style to Boho spaces to Moroccan bedrooms and everything in between. Weave rattan into your space by choosing decor pieces like mirrors, cushions, and baskets.

3. Ornate details

Nothing says Moroccan more than a little bit of metal detailing. And this ornate bedframe certainly hits the mark! It totally steals the show in this bedroom and provides a great contrast to the softer elements in the room.

4. White Moroccan bedroom style

How’s this for a Moroccan bedroom? It’s filled to the brim with all sorts of pieces, from flowing bed covers and blankets to candles to hanging curtains and everything in between. One thing I want to draw your attention to in this space is that it’s all in the same colour scheme of light whites and neutrals. This helps bring everything together seamlessly.

5. Dark Moroccan bedroom

On the other hand, if you aren’t a fan of the light neutrals you can take things to the dark side with black-and-brown timber pieces and plenty of metal. Even if you weave in some sandy neutrals, a dark foundation adds a more masculine feel and contrast to the space.

6. Hanging lanterns

Create ambience in your bedroom with decorative lighting. And these woven lanterns are just the way to do it! They cast a warm glow around this narrow room and completely transform the mood, making it cosy and mellow.

7. Warm tones

Switch up your space with everything that glows! Fill your bedroom to the brim with warm, cosy touches, such as a large Moroccan rug on the floor, mustard cushions on the bed, and timber furniture. It all comes together for a lovely finish!

8. Colourful rug

Love a little bit of colour? Me too! And a fabulous rug like this one is the perfect way to paint your bedroom bright. Of course, you don’t have to choose bold colours to make a statement. There are so many rugs out there on the market with all sorts of patterns that will easily infuse a Moroccan style spark to your space.

9. Contemporary style

Keep things to a minimum with a simple white concrete bedroom. This style is all the rage right now because it’s just so easy to create. And in addition to that, it’s also fairly easy to maintain.

10. Hanging lantern

This is a great example of how you can inject Moroccan style to your bedroom without completely changing what you’ve already got. Simply add a detailed, installing a hanging lantern pendant—here’s an unusual white one.

11. Go all out with gold

Moroccan decor pieces typically make the most of mixed metals and silver and gold. So if that’s the look you’re going for, a fancy lamp like this one will certainly do the trick! I love how the doily-like exterior casts gorgeous patterns around the corner of the room. While this isn’t a bedroom, it contains numerous Moroccan style elements you can copy!

12. Vintage Moroccan rug

Looking for something soft and comfy under your feet? A Moroccan rug will do the trick! They come in all kinds of colours and have differing patterns. So no matter what style your space is, you’ll be able to find one that does the trick!

13. Middle Eastern inspiration

Want a no-fuss approach to Moroccan styling? Try something like this. A bed with a simple white cover, a large full-length mirror, and a couple of other timber and woven touches. It’s all these little details that can make a huge difference when putting together your new bedroom.

14. Green tiled wall

Oh, how very lush is this green bedroom? I’ve never seen a tiled feature wall in a bedroom, especially not one like this. But I’m here for it! While this space is definitely a colour explosion, I like how timber is used consistently for the furniture and the colours on the cushions, bedspread and lamp all tie together perfectly to create a beautiful finish.

15. Coastal meets Boho

Who says you have to choose one way to style your bedroom and one way only? Combine a few of your favourite elements in a lovely mish-mash of textures, prints and patterns. A mix of Boho and Moroccan elements works so perfectly together. I love this space and its warm neutrals, macrame touches and plantlife. It looks like the perfect spot to laze about with a book in one hand and a cuppa in another.

16. Arabian nights

For a stunning Moroccan inpsired bedroom, go for ornate and intricate patterns on the walls, bed covers and furnishings. I love a mix of bright colours with a light white and cream base. Then weave gold through the room, such as in the mirror frame or lighting.

17. Red and blue, baby!

How’s this for colour? This Moroccan style bedroom is bold! If you love bright colours, this combination of bright blue and retro red might be for you. While they’re an unlikely colour pairing, they can work well together when there are some other foundational colours tying things together, like timber, white or brown.

18. Bright and bold

Make a statement by mixing and matching all kinds of patterns, colours and images. Your Moroccan bedroom can break all the design rules, but in doing so, make its own! So if you’re someone who likes to draw outside the lines, why not have a bit of fun and go all out. Get creative by choosing a mish-mash of textures, colours and prints and combining them all. Who knows – something fabulous could be the result!

19. White and creams

I’m a big believer that you simply can’t go wrong with this colour combination. White, creams, and any kind of neutrals for that matter, will never go out of fashion. Just make sure you choose the right colours for the right items. What I love about this space is that the creamy beige has been used as the headboard – this sets a great foundation for the white doona cover and timber touches.

20. Keep it traditional

Not all styling has to be modern and white. Play around with colours, textures and patterns to create a space that’s truly unique. And while you’re at it, don’t forget the walls! Find some interesting prints or even colourful plates and frame them up – they’ll finish off your space perfectly.

21. Mustard tones

How gorgeous is this room? It’s simple and understated but still packs a punch. And mustard is very hot in the design space right now. It’s a lovely warm colour that easily brightens up any white or neutral space. And I love the Moroccan-style arched window!

22. Vases of flowers

Finally, while not strictly Moroccan, why not add some dried flowers sitting pretty at the end of your bed? I love dried flowers because they last a little longer than their fresh counterparts (how does forever sound?)! And they add a lovely warm glow to a space filled with cool metals.

There you have it, 20+ Moroccan bedroom ideas. I hope you’re inspired and ready to design your own space! Which design are you going to implement? I’d love to hear! Comment on this post and let me know.
