Thursday Travel to Design: Moroccan Zellige Tile

Moroccan zellige is a gorgeous type of tile work frequently used to ornament walls, ceilings, floors, furniture and more! It usually consists of mosaics of ceramic in bright colors and makes a beautiful addition to any home.

There are many beautiful and creative ways to incorporate zellige into your decor. One great idea is to use it as a faux headboard for your bed! In this bedroom, the wall actually has a cutout and inside is the zellige tile.

The ceiling is also a great way to use zellige – and for those who like bold looks, it makes a MAJOR impact! We love how this outdoor space is instantly transformed by the intricate tile designs on the ceiling.
