Style 17 - early 18th century

Baroque style - "pretentious shape sink". The very word "barocco" in translation from Italian means "pretentious". This word briefly and succinctly characterizes everything related to this style.
The main features are grandeur, splendor of forms, spatial scope, massiveness, variability, dynamism, an endless rhythm of curved lines and all kinds of lighting effects. Baroque combined two concepts - style and way of life. Associated with the museum style.

The Baroque style is one of the most luxurious and solemn styles in both architecture and interior design. Its purpose is to openly demonstrate the prestige and well-being of the owner.
The time when the Baroque style in the interior reached its highest peak falls on the 17th-18th centuries, the most striking example, in my opinion, is the Versailles Palace, which belongs to Louis XIV - the Sun King.

He invented this nickname himself. According to legend, it is said that once walking in the Tuileries Garden at the age of five. The young king looked into the puddle in which the sun was reflected and shouted, "I am the sun! I am the sun! " Since then, everyone has called him just that. Louis liked this nickname so much that the sun became his emblem.

The history of the Palace of Versailles begins in the 17th century in 1661. "The Sun King" has long dreamed of something that could amaze everyone, overshadow everyone with its beauty and grandeur. Subsequently, he decides to take up the project of his entire life, which lasts for 50 years.
Year after year, the structure of the palace began to acquire a heliocentric system. Since the monarch himself considered himself the "Sun".

It doesn't matter how much money was spent on the creation of this architectural masterpiece. It is important what beauty the descendants inherited!

It should be noted that at present there are adherents of the luxurious Baroque style - people, no doubt, extraordinary, avoiding the routine of everyday life and striving to bring their homes closer to the examples of palace art.

Baroque color scheme: bright colors, rich play of light and shadow. Popular baroque colors: white combined with gold.

Floral ornament, winding lines.

The main materials used in the solution of the Baroque interior are ivory, turtle shell, porcelain, mother-of-pearl, mirrors, stone mosaics, marble, bronze.

The tradition of the "barocco" style is to upholster armchairs, seats, sofas and other upholstered furniture with expensive fabric and fringe. The walls and ceiling are decorated with rich stucco, carved wood, beautiful tapestries.

Painted ceilings, rich carvings and inlays, beautiful fireplaces, bronze and gilded furniture plates, canopies, showcases, grandfather clocks decorated with bronze.

The furniture is rough, convex-concave, lacquered. Chairs, armchairs, sofas, chaise lounges, round and rectangular tables with massive tabletops made of colored marble or mosaic, legs in the form of female figures or with the heads of lions and rams, dynamic in shape.

Tent bed, secretaries, showcases, double wardrobes, mirrors, sculptural groups, vases, cartouche, etc.

Among the new pieces of furniture that the Baroque style brought with it are a dressing table for ladies, a chest of drawers with several drawers, and pedestals and display cases for sculptures.

If you are the happy owner of a spacious bathroom, you can decorate its interior in an extraordinary way, choosing for this purpose, for example, an exclusive baroque style. The solution these days is somewhat extravagant, but at the same time successful when it comes to a large area. Furniture and accessories stylized in a Baroque style will decorate the interior of your bathroom, bringing aristocracy and elegance to its atmosphere.

What is needed to give a classic baroque touch to the bathroom interior? First of all, elegant faience: a bathtub, a toilet bowl, and a sink mounted on a stylized table. You can also install a baroque cabinet here, a table with an armchair and hang elegant curtains with a classic pattern.

The bathtub can be placed on a special podium right in the middle of the entire room. The bathtub itself can be made of cast iron, with massive gilded legs, preferably with artistic forging.
Mixers and showers must be chosen in an unusual shape, for example, reminiscent of a figurine or sculpture.

Of the materials, mosaic tiles on the walls and on the floor, as well as tiles imitating natural stone, will be appropriate. These materials will add richness and luxury to the interior, corresponding to the Baroque style.

And, of course, mirrors in all rooms! Baroque mirrors play not only a household role, but also the role of a separate decorative element or accessory. There may be several of them. It is important that the shape is rounded, and the frame is gilded and decorated with painting or carving.

Lots of pompous decor: sculpture pedestals, grandfather clocks, sculptural groups, vases, boxes, cartouche, etc.

For connoisseurs of luxury, sophistication and those who want to immerse themselves in the palace atmosphere, baroque in the interior is the best solution, because despite its external pomp, this style is perceived great!
