10 images

Whether you are looking to design a home that reflects your ethnicity or have an appreciation of faraway destinations you’ll love this Islamic-inspired dining room. Something as simple as accent lighting infuses a space with an exotic vibe. Faux curtain panels lend interest to a windowless wall, while a group of Moroccon lanterns forms an exotic silhouette. The large pattern of floor tiles plays a visual trick, giving the sense of a bigger space.
