How To Create a Charming Moroccan-Style Outdoor Space.


How To Create a Charming Morocco-Style Outdoor Space.

I have been looking forward to doing something unique decorating ideas for Spring for my outdoor spaces.  It took me some time to come up with a Moroccan-Style theme. I do love the global decor and I have this thing for colorful pillows and oriental rugs outside. I have all these accents pieces in my attic. The biggest persuasion to go with this theme was I had painted my old outdoor table a beautiful shade of gray and stenciled a large Moroccan medallion on the center of the table. Here are my ideas for creating a charming Moroccan-style outdoor space.

Step 1: Pick out your base furniture.

It was a ton of fun choosing the base furniture for the patio space. I choose a large teak sofa with two teak chairs as the base.

Step 2: Large Colorful rug.

Adding a large colorful rug in the center of the patio space will start creating the Moroccan style look.

Step 3: Large coffee table.

I had this large table which I repainted and stenciled a large medallion in the middle.

Here is the tutorial on how to do it.

Step 4: Blue and White Mediterranean China

I choose some Mediterranean style plates and cups to use outside for entertaining.

Step 5: Colorful pillows

I added many different styles of colorful fabric for the pillows on the sofa and chair. It was the perfect touch to create a charming Moroccan-style outdoor space.

  1. Gorgeous Persian rug far too pretty to be in the attic! It looks striking in your outdoor setting. Love your colorful pillows and lovely blue and white china. Those brownies look decadent on your pretty cake stand. The stencil on your table adds a charming touch.
    It was a fun blog hop this week.

    1. Bonnie

      So happy that you stopped by and glad we met. the blog hop is a great place to meet ladies with the same interest.

  2. Maria, fabulous that you joined us for this tablescape adventure, and an adventure theme is exactly what you created here with your global decor in a Moroccan interpretation. I agree with Bonnie – the rug is too pretty to have in an attic! Your tabletop finish is terrific and, like you, I have similar teak furniture that has that complementary gray, aged finish now. Your table really turned out sharp. It’s a great look for spring OR summer, even early fall. Happy Spring! Pass the brownies, please!

    1. Rita, You have been a joy to work with and loved the blog hop! looking forward to the nest blog hop.

  3. Just absolutely lovely Maria, what a wonderful spring setting in your beautiful yard! The stenciled table is gorgeous, I can see you and your guests lingering there long after sunset…

    1. Jenna I love you blog and So happy you liked the moroccan theme. I can’t remember if there was a theme to our blog hop and I was worried that I messed up, but I guess it was fine.

  4. Maria, you set the stage for a beautiful Spring or Summer gathering! The rug looks right at home in the gorgeous setting & I am so in love with the Moroccan theme. That is my all time favorite Stencil! Loved being included in this Hop!

  10. you couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful backdrop to highlight your tea party. The stenciled medallion is gorgeous as are the pillows and the rug. It is the perfect spot to relax with a cup of tea and one of those decadent brownies.

    1. Hi Sandra, So glad you enjoyed my party! I loved your tablescape and meeting all of you! its been a great pleasure.

  11. Maria, what time is the tea party? So love your outdoor setting and would love to be there!! Great idea.

    1. Kim, I really wish I could see more of you all in person. Haven was a great place to meet up last year but I’m not going this year.

  12. What fun to see this fabulous tea party you’ve set up in such a lovely location! Love the colourful prints on the pillows and rug and the pretty pattern on your dishes. Those lanterns are gorgeous and are wonderful statement pieces. Yum, the brownies look so delicious!

    1. Lori, I was a bit worried that the colors would clash, but it turned out ok. Now I know I can do this again. I am thinking of doing a moroccan theme it with a large table.Thanks so much

  13. I love these vibrant colors against the neutral color of your teak patio furniture. The colors really pop! I especially like how you mixed patterns, too. I’m always a chicken about mixing patterns and colors because I’m afraid it will turn out looking like a mish-mash. But, you balanced things perfectly, here. I love your Moroccan stencil.

    1. Carol, I am sure you can mix match stuff too, the key is to but keep it simple. I notice if I have to much around the table it takes away from the table, so i make sure there is nothing outside that will get in the way. Hugs Maria

  14. Al fresco! Excellent idea…it’s an inviting space and decorated with wonderful detail. Enjoy the season!

    1. Nancy, I try my best to be different with my parties and design. Glad you enjoyed it.

  15. Maria, let’s see what I love about your tablescape. The setting, so open and peaceful. The stenciled table, awesome look. The pale blue patterned dishes, to die for. The weathered gray furniture, so nostalgic and comfy looking. The colorful pillows and rug, great pops of color. Beautiful job, my dancing friend!

    1. Carol, thanks so much! I wish I was going to dance with you all again this year, but I go away on vacation that whole week! 🙁
