Decorating With Colorful Moroccan Rugs


Moroccan decor is one of my favorite styles to decorate with from shag rugs to poufs for its versatility. Despite their recognizable style, Moroccan rugs can compliment a range of other design styles from traditional to mid-century to modern. We've had a traditional black and white moroccan rug in our living room for the past two years, but Moroccan rugs can get quite colorful when you get into Berber rugs.

Berber rugs from the Azilal and Boucherite regions are among my favorite colorful styles of Moroccan rugs. A rug with a history, each is handmade traditionally by the women in the tribe using the skill that's been passed down from generation to generation. Each rug has an unique personality, pattern and color combo making them one-of-a-kind. Here are some of my favorite Azilal and Bourcherouite rugs from a drop of color to all the way in.

My favorite look for a Boucherouite rug starts at the "drop of color" side of the spectrum where the look can be versatile by mixing with others styles without claiming the room as boho. The styles with a white or cream background and colorful geometric shape outlines and patterns like the one in this home office are my favorite. The pops of color in the rug bring a boho touch without taking over the style of the room and look great mixed with the warm wood and neutral colors in the room.

As you build up in color, the more pronounced the boho flair becomes. You can keep the white background but let the shapes get larger and the colors more vibrant. I love this look for a bold boho room, a fun office, kid's room or even a closet.

For the all out courageous colorful fiend, these unique and brightly colored boho designs pair well with many different styles of furniture from mid-century to modern and can be a statement rug in a room or a beautiful wall hanging.

You can find these one-of-a-kind rugs on sites like Coco CarpetsBeklina, Love Moroccan Rugs and on Etsy in shops like Pink Rug Co.
