A moody, Moroccan-style bathroom

In the market for a new bathroom? This Moroccan-style sanctuary might be the perfect style for your personality


Bathrooms should be functional, but that doesn’t mean they need to be boring. Your bathroom should be a space you love spending time in, so if you have a penchant for prints and patterns, get creative and personalise the space. Bathrooms are designed to be restful and relaxing, though, so be judicious with bold detail as too much colour and pattern may drive you crazy. The trick is to use a striking pattern or motif as a focal point in a single feature area.


In this moody, Moroccan-style bathroom, the black ‘Marrakech’ wall mural from Rebel Walls was the starting point for the scheme. Dark wood floors and cabinetry are teamed with a white vanity to complement the mural in a simple, streamlined way. Touches of leather, felt and towelling add texture and warmth.
