On the other hand, something that can not be missing to achieve a result according to what is sought are the textile elements. The so-called kilims are basically rugs, usually made of materials such as cotton or wool, and decorated with geometric shapes that are based on the origins of the region of Persia and its various tribes.

Walls and use of wood or metals

If the budgetary possibilities are higher than normal, a personalization on the walls of the home can give the distinctive touch that is needed. For example, bathrooms often use a technique called “Tadelakt” which consists of a glossy lime coating with waterproof qualities and a very attractive wavy effect from sanding its surface.

Another classic element is the combination of tiles, emphasizing the freedom to create something more original and out of the ordinary., that is, with a mixture of different colors and unique designs on the surface. It may not be so easy to find the ideal tile in a conventional supply chain, but luckily there are more and more specialized design stores with interesting proposals.

Finally, Two materials that are always present in an Arabic decoration are wood and metals. It’s all about finding the right measure and thus carved wooden tables combined with mirrors and bronze decorations that give an extra touch to an armchair, door or head of the bed can be the extra necessary to achieve this aesthetic.
