The kitchen is a great place to start your Moroccan makeover. North African-inspired tiles are an easy and timeless way to jazz up a tired backsplash or floor and hand-painted bowls and platters make fantastic centrepieces. Don't forget a tagine - no kitchen in Marrakech would be complete without this conical earthenware dish to help slow-cook exotic and fragrant traditional stews.

Choose a statement piece, such as an eye-catching coffee table, to be the central focus of the room. Or opt for carved seat bases or inlayed chests which contrast beautifully with bold colours and plush cushions and pouffes. To create even more texture and layers, fill an empty corner or divide the room with a decorative wooden screen.

"A visit to Marrakech was a great shock to me. This city taught me colour"
Late fashion designer Yves Saint-Laurent, whose favourite holiday destination was Morocco.
In Moroccan design, the more cushions the better (just ask the Moroccan restaurant at ClubHotel Riu Tikida Dunas). Clashing is cool - mix warm yellows and hot pinks with rich purples and dazzling greens, and extend your pillow palette onto ethnic rugs and wall hangings.
"Keep the rest of your décor white or neutral if you want subtle bohemian flair," says Nadia. "Or paint your walls a warm terracotta shade to transform your space." Complete the look with a couple of patterned floor cushions, which makes for relaxing and informal seating.

Lanterns are a key element to Moroccan style. When hung from the ceiling, these delicate pieces made from metal and coloured glass cast warming shadows. Add even more atmosphere by placing candles in hurricane lamps or brightly-hued tea glasses that feature Moorish patterns. Nadia says: "Arrange some lanterns on your kitchen windowsill to give your cooking space a taste of exotic inspiration.
