If you haven’t experienced a getaway in a while, how does a Moroccan twist sound?

Spare the jetlag and give your outdoor area a Moroccan twist this summer.

Most outdoor areas lack style and excitement and often get neglected when redecorating. For a nation who entertains extensively outdoors in summer, for barbeques, dinner parties and pool parties, a little styling and decorating can become an extension of stylish living interiors.

Moroccan design is welcoming, warm, inexpensive and relatively easy to pull together. The minimal and timeless Morroccan look works great outdoors to modernise, without over styling.

Traditional Moroccan homes feature lush printed fabrics and silks, floor cushions, lanterns, mosaics, candles, timber carvings and plants.

For outdoor spaces it’s all about a few key accessories. Eclectic, interesting and colourful pieces like a throw rug, toss pillows, lanterns or side tables can create summer chic outdoor rooms.

Outdoor rugs are the best way to add a bit of colour and interest to an outdoor space.

There are lots of different chairs, ottomans, tables and sofas that don’t look “outdoor” but are in fact perfect for verandahs, balconies, terraces and sunrooms. Classic navy and white looks combine the romance of the sea with the elegance of a garden party.

While imagining your holidaying far away, a hammock can be a great relaxation item that can add style to your outdoor space. Why not place a gorgeous artesian side table beside the hammock to place a cocktail or book.

Eco Chic has released a range of fabulously eclectic, interesting and colourful Moroccan pieces to transform your outdoor space this summer, including rugs, hammocks, chairs and tables, as pictured above.
