Moroccan Influences

I love Moroccan style. Such intricate patterns and deep rich colors. I’m currently thinking about decorating a few rooms of the house in a Moroccan inspired theme, so of course it’s been on my mind a lot lately. I couldn’t help but take a peek at some Moroccan style jewelry (even though it has nothing to do with the house work I will be trying to take on during spring break). Here are a few of my favorite finds from Etsy.

  1. Love Moroccan design! I scored one of my best-ever flea market finds when I snagged a heavy metal Moroccan lantern for $15, took it to the auto body shop to get it sanded and primed, and painted it a soft red. New, they’re about $90. I love the shadows it casts through the cut-out designs.
