The vast and diverse geography of Morocco making it a perfect gateway, from the stunning beaches of the Atlantic Ocean to the dramatic Atlas Mountains and the Golden Sahara Desert. Not just for that, the North African Kingdom is also host to a variety of well-known towns, each contributing to Morocco’s unique charms. The vivid and vibrant colors of Morocco are especially impressive. In one trip, you should hope to cover all the different sides of vivid Morocco!
Without a question, Chefchaouen dubbed the “blue pearl of Morocco” can be listed in the list of the most formidable destination in the world with its beautiful blue narrow streets and blue-washed houses. Nestled in the spectacular Rif Mountains of northern Morocco, the city boasts one of the most charming medinas in the world. Every alley has been decorated with all the shades of blue, which provides a lovely background for visitors to pose in influencer-perfect shots.
The Sahara Desert with golden-orange sand dunes.
A very similar sight, an endless sea of golden-orange sand dunes, may come to mind when we think of the Sahara Desert. The biggest hot desert in the world extends from Egypt to Morocco, with 9.4 million square kilometers of desert ground, equal in scale to the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii). There are several ergs or sand dunes created by wind-blown sand in the Sahara desert of Morocco; and Erg Chebbi is the most impressive with its grand dunes. Growing to a height of up to 150 meters, the wind-blown sand dunes of Erg Chebbi are the Sahara of your dreams. When the sun rises and falls over the dunes, their varying colors of orange and gold set against the infinite horizon.
Red Marrakech- Yves Saint Laurent
“Yves Saint Laurent, who bought a cobalt blue villa in the Moroccan city and made it his holiday home in 1966, said, “Marrakech taught me colour. “Everything was black before Marrakech.”
The museum demonstrates artistic masterpieces that cover the 40-year career of the late artist, from 1962 until his retirement in 2002. (He died six years later, in 2008.) Next door to the Majorelle Garden and minutes away from his private villa, at the $17 million terra cotta museum built by Studio KO architects, some 1,000 pieces from Saint Laurent’s studio are on display. The Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent Foundation project was spearheaded by Pierre Bergé, Saint Laurent’s business associate and longtime romantic partner, who passed away on 8 September last month. He was, however, willing to attend the museum to see his idea completed before it opened.
Yellow – Souks
Walk through the Marrakech Souks and you can find perfect piles of brightly marked, powdered spices! Served alongside natural herbs and tea leaves, pigments and more to both residents and tourists, it’s a feast for the eyes. There are all types of shades, but yellow, with hints of orange, brown and earthy gray, is the prevailing shade.
You’ll see yellow in the warm light from the candles, the spices in the food, and in the garments, rugs, slippers, and goods peppered in the souk and across the Medina, beyond the hundreds of piles of spices.
Rose Pink -House Walls Marrakech
While the city of Marrakech has experienced several adjustments as the world’s borders have opened up, the pink hue of the buildings has become one constant that has never changed. Much of the buildings in the city are tinted with natural red clay from a neighboring area of the city of Marrakech, from houses to significant religious buildings, markets, restaurants, and public spaces.
It settles in the buildings like a rose pink pigment as the red clay dries away. When you look at the city’s skyline, it is obvious that Marrakech is often referred to as the “Rose City.” These colors help to reflect a city that has managed for hundreds of years to maintain its history.
While less common in Marrakech than other commonly seen bright colors and pastel shades, purple hues can be found mainly in Souk markets and in certain houses, including elaborate doors and tiled murals. In clothes, textiles, and rugs, Tyrian purple, which is a rich shade of purple, can be identified.
The deep tone of Tyrian purple is produced as a tiny aside, using dye derived from murex shellfish, which has been extracted and used in Morocco for decades, which is the explanation why purple has been the color of monarchy, for how costly it was to obtain!
Green is the emblem of Islam, and we see it in the glorious courts of the Madrasas, the schools of Islam. Among the most beautiful and ancient of all Islamic history, Fes is renowned for its schools.
In the buildings, in the gardens or in the mosques, there are mosaics in various green tones, some approaching yellow tones.
Your eyes will be captured by admiring the Medina from high up.
This beautiful color was named after the artist Jacques Majorelle (7 March 1886-14 October 1962), a French painter who is known to be the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech, Morroco, his most prominent work.
As a paint color, Majorelle Blue is most closely identified with the brightly decorated twelve acre botanical garden planned by Majorelle between the 1920s and 1930s. He had copyrighted the receipt for Majorelle Blue before Jacques Majorelle expired, which meant its replication was quite expensive.
Ultramarine Blue, a beautifully vivid color, which we understand is a rather appropriate contrast to Majorelle Blue, is made and sold through Bristol Spray.
Bristol Ultramarine Blue has been used in retail, art galleries, theater and film collections, as well as for domestic and exhibition decorations for many decorative applications. The Conran Party, who have used Bristol Ultramarine Blue in their stores in the UK, as well as in France and the USA, chose this vivid hue.
If a cooling, transparent and fresh aesthetic effect is needed, the vibrant hue paints are fine
Bristol Ultramarine Blue has been lauded by multiple color enthusiasts, saying that the velvet shade is ‘as similar as you can come’ to that of the initial Majorelle Blue.
Bristol paint is meant only for indoor use.
Any of the colors that can be seen in the architecture and textiles of morocco come from inspiration from the natural environment. It gives constant inspiration to designers and creative practitioners when it comes to art and design. Our wonderful country’s color palette reveals that it is possible to mix several vivid and pastel hues to produce stunning and eye-catching patterns and works of art. Whether or not you choose to evoke Morocco’s atmosphere with the option of hue, the inspiration from bohemian and old-world paint combos would be a lovely vibrance!
