This is why Moroccan architecture is timeless

Moroccan architecture is intricate, rhythmic and exotic.  Structures are defined by the skilful patterning of tiles.  The mosques and public houses of Morocco are a veritable inspiration for the hand made tile enthusiast.  Every Moroccan tile is unique – because it is hand made.  Tiny ‘imperfections’ add to the character of the tile, rather than take away from it.  The cool colors, reflective glaze patterns add a sense of regality to any interior.

We would suggest that you use Moroccan tiles in small doses, as accent tiles to frame an alcove or doorway.  This way, they can integrate with harmony while lending a bit of exotic flair.  A good starting point would be the following collection of Moroccan tiled architecture.  Let us know if you are inspired!
