Moroccan tile wallpaper

26 April 2018

Bring more than a hint of Morocco home with this clever tile-effect wallpaper. It might look like you have just hauled a gorgeous cargo of genuine riad tiles back from your holiday, but this is actually easy-application wallpaper, who knew?

Global print is proving to be one of the most popular trends in interiors. Whether you're sticking to just one continent for inspiration, or mixing it up, it seems there's nothing more current than seeking homeware influence from around the world. We love this Moroccan Tile-Effect wallpaper. It has the look of real encaustic tiles but with all the benefits of a convenient easy-to-use wallpaper. Finished in a soft-tone grey, its muted colour means all that pattern doesn't overpower the room.

Top tip: This print looks great en mass but if we haven't convinced you to cover a wall or decorate an entire room, then why not try applying some to a large wall canvas or frame a section up as a statement piece of art. It's less permanent and easier to change. 

Mix your prints

Don't be afraid to get creative by mixing your prints together. Combining Moroccan-looking patterns with traditional ikat prints works particularly well, especially if you keep the look coherent by sticking to a uniformed colourway. For example, here we have used greys and warm yellow ochre and have resisted the temptation to add too many tones. 

Layer the trend

Like the look? Try adding some extra layers with the help of rugs, cushions and ceramic accessories. This Tile Effect Rug nails the global trend and creates an extra element of detail when designing the room. It has a lovely textured appearance and comes in four different sizes to choose from.
