There’s something about lavish, ornate Moroccan décor that makes even the most traditional client yearn for a touch of the exotic. The past few years have seen an explosion of planners and designers who specialize in Indian weddings, which can last for days and include multiple celebrations and feasting for family and friends.

But Moroccan is no longer relegated to Indian weddings. The style has gone mainstream because one of its advantages is that you can pick and choose among a plethora of elements that make up the overall look, from rugs and pillows to lamps, lounging divans and draped fabric.

We recently discovered a new talent who has perfected the art of adding a touch of Moroccan, or going all out.

Here’s look at some of his work.
