Moroccan bedding- Your bedroom is your haven, an escape from stress, a place where you can rest and rejuvenate! Bedrooms should always be decorated in such a way that comfort takes top priority. Remember that décor subtly impacts your mood. So make sure to walk into a well decorated and relaxing bedroom after a long day.
All you need for sprucing up the room is Moroccan bedding and related accessories – take a look at these tips and decorating ideas:
- You don’t have to pick brightly colored Moroccan bedding every time. Choose shades as per your preference – Moroccan designs are available in an array of colors starting from pastel shades like mint green and baby blue to slightly darker ones like sky blue and crimson. If you want a bolder tone, go for brilliant reds, oranges, greens and blues.
- A Moroccan bed frame can either be a shade closer to the color you have selected previously, or a different hue that imparts a great contrast. The intricacy of patterns on the headboard has to be decided based on what you want. For instance, do you want light detailing on the edges, or would you prefer that it spans across the entire bed frame?
- Ideally, the sheets in a Moroccan bedding set should be in neutral colors so they match the overall theme. Look for top quality sheets in beige, ivory, taupe, black, gray, and white with light Moroccan embroidery on them.
- Moroccan wedding blankets, or handira, as they are popularly known, are delicately woven from sheep’s wool, cotton and linen by Berber women. They are beautiful with mirrorwork and sequins etched on to it, which might take weeks due to the extraordinarily fine craftsmanship required. The blanket, an important part of Moroccan bedding sets, is a good luck charm for the couple as it is believed to bring luck and grant fertility. Handira is generally neutral in color, with rectilinear lines or boxes of texture. At times they are accented with bands of kilim patterns too and can easily double as a duvet cover.
- A Moroccan bed allows you to try different styles and patterns – there are numerous fabric options. They incorporate elements of Islamic, Berber, Jewish, African, and Mediterranean culture. Buy handcrafted and embroidered tarz rbati or fez style material – either way they look gorgeous!
