Half dipped the Moroccan way

Here’s more inspiration about half dipped and half painted decor, this time by the influence of Moroccan interior design style.



A simple idea to create the Moroccan atmosphere is to use the handmade Havtorn dishes and pots of stoneware from IKEA. Use a few shades of ordinary wall paints, dipp pots and dishes and let the final result be a bit random! The paint dries in less than two hours and gets a nice matte finish.



Beautiful rugs, plants and sated burnt tones produce a harmonious and cozy atmosphere of Scandinavian-white room.
