Recently I have been gravitating towards Moroccan tile and homes that use a bit of Moorish influence in unexpected settings. There is something about the dramatic archways, domes, and courtyards that bring a majestic and exotic ambience to a home. Why not embrace a cultural injection of architecturally interesting design components. It is always easy to play it safe with what you love, but don’t be afraid to add some extra spice into a space.

See, Moorish influence doesn’t have to be over the top. It can be perfectly subtle and the right amount of spice.
