“Fabric shades are like great art: They transform a space and its inhabitants,” says Kara Roberts, Director of Merchandising for Smith & Noble, the manufacturer of the Moroccan-style shades shown here. Flat Roman shades fold up at the top when fully raised and lie flat when lowered, creating a low profile look that works with a wide range of fabrics and prints.
Painting the cabinets, walls and ceiling shades of white creates a fresh and neutral backdrop for pops of color in this open floor plan. Complementary to the large artwork, fabrics for the pillows, throws, dining chairs and ottoman's upholstery add color. The kitchen pendants and accessories tie the spaces together.
Dining room chairs with a unique geometric design were chosen and upholstered in a shade of blue inspired by the Mediterranean Sea. The fabric adds bright color to the neutral walls and beige tile flooring. A floral arrangement serves as the table’s centerpiece and green hurricanes with a circular pattern continue the geometric design of the space.
The incredible backyard of this home is truly an oasis: An expansive covered porch has plenty of room for couches, sofas and a dining area. Pull the curtains for added shade or privacy. In the back of the yard waits a shimmering swimming pool.
Brass Moroccan lanterns add a glow to this guest bedroom that’s designed in shades of black and white. A golden mural adds a magical touch to the space, designed to be a romantic respite for couples. The color palette is further grounded by handwoven Moroccan rugs, featuring the popular diamond motif.
A canopy poster bed, fashioned from mindi wood with Parson-style posts and a horizontal planked headboard, serves as the room's focal point. A Moroccan-inspired area rug in a neutral shade anchors the space.
This soft, neutral contemporary kitchen earns a pop of lively color and texture with the inclusion of a custom built-in banquette area. A wooden dining table is surrounded by bright orange Emeco Navy chairs, while the windows are accented by shades made from Moroccan inspired fabric.
This breakfast area is a cheerful mix of patterns: Bernhardt dining chairs with a graphic back and nailhead trim surround a round Coddington-designed walnut table. A silver leaf iron pendant, roman shades and a Moroccan-print accent rug complete the space. The artwork in the adjoining living room is by Monika Steiner.
This view with the doors open shows the interior of the closets, styled as a secret play space for kids with round white embroidered Moroccan poofs with a hand stitched floral design and assorted throw pillows for comfort. Two chrome flush mount light fixtures with brilliant red shades inside the closet provide lighting.
Since the bold painting is the focal point for this space, designers balanced the color by adding a white, low profile sofa. Then, they added warmth with a natural fiber jute rug and a vintage Moroccan rug with shades of pink, burgundy and brown. All of these items blend together to complement the painting while making the room feel vast and full of movement.
