INTERIOR OBSESSION: MOROCCAN TILES

I was lucky enough to visit Marrakesh in 2013 which was one of the best holiday’s I’ve ever had. From the treasure filled souks to the gardens of Yves Saint Laurent, the place itself is just amazing. In terms of interiors, it was one of the most inspirational places I’ve visited.


Rich hues of blue and green sat next to more subtle greys and whites, all on a backdrop of terracotta across Morocco. Traditional ceramic tiles were everywhere and I left wishing I had enough room in my suitcase to bring a tonne home.

With that said, I decided to gather a little tile inspiration this morning and I can’t stop thinking about how I can achieve that tiled sink in my own home. How beautiful is it? I also love the idea of creating a fireplace surround with tiles like this, and a splash back in your kitchen in mismatched tiles is definitely something I’ll try when I can actually do something more than rented magnolia walls and plain surfaces.

I’m actually going to try and put together a DIY as I found a really cool tile shop in Leeds which has small ceramic tiles, and although I can’t tell you what I’m going to make yet, make sure you keep an eye out for it on the blog over the next couple of weeks. Until then, I hope these pictures inspire you a little to incorporate some Moroccan inspired interiors into your own home.
