Styling Idea # 118 Moroccan Splashbacks


We are such a lucky country. In the wake of floods and droughts playing havoc with the very weather patterns that feed us we can still access and enjoy incredible food. Today I was fortunate enough to take home a mystery food box. In effect I selected the fruit and vegetables from the shoot (additional left overs were delivered to shelters) but I now have an abundance of delicious colourful, unique and flavorsome food I have to work out what on earth to do with! It is an exciting prospect to deal with. Swiss brown mushrooms, fennel and blueberries anyone?

Since I roasted vegetables with a Moroccan rub last night let’s get inspired by Moroccan kitchen elements….

Kitchen Clarity


  • There are some many colour and combination’s to choose from but you will find many of the base patterns are heavy in a blue and white- see the patterns I have included below for inspiration from other palettes.
  • These splash back do not need to be very high- the patterns are intense so you can keep them at a low height to create the impact without looking themed.
  • Continue to select your kitchen elements as you like- this look will go with beachy, traditional, classic or modern so if you want a new kitchen but cannot afford one go for new splash backs!
  • The last picture is a kitchen but I think this shows how it could work easily inside a cupboard or a butler pantry to add an element of surprise!
  • I would avoid decorative trims across the top- you will already have enough going on and the trims might look a bit bath house!

More tiles for you…..cause I love you all ;0
