Why choose Moroccan curtains?

Accessorize rooms with exotic accents, such as curtains and drapes to create an exciting world of color and texture. Moroccan style curtains are usually made of soft embroidered silk, satin, or velvet that is exquisitely patterned. Prints and design contain an interesting mixture of diamonds, squares, and other geometric shapes, represented with vibrant colors. If you wish to opt for a bolder tone, select furnishings, curtains, drapes, wall hangings or tapestries in deep, rich and vibrant reds, purples and gold. On the other hand, if you want to stick to a simple color palette choose pastel hues.

Outdoors

Curtains impart a breezy feel to any outdoor space. If you have a trellis, it is perfect for providing a structure from which to hang some vibrant yellow Moroccan curtains. You can utilize red and orange ones as well. The point is to keep the ambience visually appealing. This theme works great for patios and backyards – you can spend quality “me time” after a hectic week at the office or host intimate gatherings for a small group of friends.

For your bedroom the window treatments used should be long and flowing. Moroccan sheer curtains under velvet or satin-like drapes look excellent – blue Moroccan curtains pass on a soothing and cool vibe, exactly what you want in a bedroom to lull you to sleep. Want some more depth? Add an edging of fringe to the drapes in the color of the sheers and use tassel tie backs in the same color.

Other Areas

For living rooms and dining spaces, layered Moroccan window drapes are the best choice as they can control light, give more privacy, and lower energy bills at the same time. If you are concerned about blinds and curtains working together, don’t be, as they are an ideal combination of function and style. The blind generally does the job of light control and privacy and the curtains add softness and more aesthetic appeal. You can go for Bohemian Moroccan drapes too, especially if you can pick up tapestries or wall hangings in the same theme.
