What does green mean?
Naturalness, life and fertility are really things that ooze from a green Moroccan tile. Whether you go for a lighter shade that invigorates and is all about raw youth and growth, or choose a dark shade like an emerald green which captures elegance similar to its royal blue Moroccan tile counterpart.
There is always a sense of symbolism such as wisdom, development and experience that the shade of green really communicates. What this helps is to really create an environment that speaks either of your life situation or your experiences of life.
It is undeniable that we all associate some form of life and emotional comfort in green. It is widely used to confirm our successes (green ticks) whilst also giving us the permission to play (green to go). It is a colour that is supportive and really helps to control and dictate a calming / soothing mood.
Green is a colour that is widely seen as restful and easy on the eyes – with a sense of slow steady but strong rooted energy, think about trees and leaves and even grass. That raw beauty captured in a dark green shade really speaks to ambition and drive, all born from that raw natural growth.
How to use green Moroccan tiles?
There are a few things to consider when trying to include, incorporate or build a space around green Moroccan tiles. These include shade, shape or pattern and any complimentary colours.
The interplay between multiple colours and patterns can be absolutely beautiful but a strong standalone colour such as an emerald green can also put on an astonishing display. The texture in these Moroccan tiles are visible, and any form of light e.g. sunlight really begins to bring out character.
Colour contrast is very important, regardless of the shade of green you go for. Whilst lighter shades have less dominance and competition, they can either be overpowered, ending up as supportive colours – or too subtle and you get no effect.
The all-round subtle approach can work in large spaces and areas with the colour green, bringing in a sense of natural youth and growth. It will help to make the space feel big, soft and calming – but this will be at the expense of a dramatic effect which people tend to go for in their bathrooms and kitchens. Do this if you are really gunning for a warmth and youthful interior.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, rich dark shades of green are perfect for tile borders as well as complete columns, rows and blocks of green. These elements fit well in kitchens and bathrooms where you can opt for colour contrasts e.g. with white and gold as well as drawing the eye to one central plot or piece.
Perfect as a statement piece but deep and rich enough to not be over the top.
Another thing to keep in mind is the sheen you get off green Moroccan tile which again adds another element of texture and character especially as light reflects off of it.
You have to be mindful of the tone or shade of green you are going for when getting green Moroccan floor tiles. It would almost always be recommended you compliment it with a white, for example, to ensure you do not lose the feeling of space – with darker greens ultimately making spaces feel more enclosed and intimate.
Finally, patterns are important whether its fish scales, hexagonal or diagonal blocks. These not only help reflect the light but add uniformity into spaces like the kitchen. Repetition and consistency is so important and with green really helps echo the natural form.
