In a Moorish Mood

(page 1 of 3)

For a beach house in San Jose del Cabo, Kara Mann (karamann.com) mixed Mexican and Moorish influences to create a rich, comfortable space that reflected its location without feeling like an overthemed hacienda. Moroccan inspiration is evident in the headboard, day bed, and pillows.

The Moroccan trend that heated up a few years ago is still alive and kicking, with designers such as Kara Mann and Nate Berkus keeping it fresh. And now a dealer who was mainly selling at trade shows and by appointment has opened his showroom for regular retail hours. Used sparingly in modern settings, the spicy-colored textiles and intricately made traditional pieces—from ornately carved furniture to romantic lanterns—can give a space an instant exotic touch.
