Morocco is in Northern-Africa bordering the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. The country’s diverse geography and the land’s long history marked by successive waves of settlers and military encroachments are all reflected in Morocco’s architecture.
The Moroccan decor has the elegance of Islamic features, all blended & adapted into interior decor at homes such as the use of tiling, fountains, geometric design and floral motifs. We can see similar kind of architecture in mosques as well!
Here is a fun fact people!
Modern day Spain was a Moorish domain from the early 8th century to the late 15th century! And this is the reason that you can see solid pretense of Moroccan style interiors in Spain.
