Creating an atmosphere of mystique, fantasy, and over the top luxury is what Middle eastern / Arabic interior design does best. Arabic home decor and interior design have evolved over centuries, blending influences from Islamic décor and architecture with ideas from the surrounding Mediterranean region. There are clear signs of Greek, Italian, Spanish and French influences in the style, all churned together into an opulent and exotic mix, out of which the Moroccan interior design is such an outstanding example.
Moroccan and Turkish are perhaps the best-known specimens of Arabic interior design. But there are variations that range from rustic and plain Bedouin-style décor to lavish, layered design that conjures up images of “Arabian Nights” legends.
Bold use of colors is what stands out most when it comes to Arabian-influenced decorating and Arabian decor in general. The tones are generally earthy, with liberal use of rich reds, golds, ochres, and oranges. The walls, floors, furnishings, and art – everything contributes deep color to space.
