Mid 18th century

Very often the Rococo style is confused with the Baroque. And there is an explanation for this.
Rococo is also known as the late Baroque style, in contrast to which Rococo uses completely different motives. The Rococo movement is a very bright and rich style. But apart from all the intricate decorative details, the rococo is also very elegant.

The Rococo style reached its peak from 1700 to 1780 in Western Europe and found expression in art and music. In French, the word rococo means "shell and stone decoration", which is very consistent with this style. Rococo asymmetry draws its inspiration from nature using curved lines. Square shapes have given way to sinuous shapes and lines.

It is safe to say that if baroque is the style of kings, then rococo is undoubtedly the style of the favorites - boudoir and erotic, cozy and graceful.

Remember, in the description of the Baroque style, I wrote about Louis XIV - the King of the Sun, who owns the Palace of Versailles. In addition to the Versailles Palace, two more castles were built on its territory, differing in size. The first, the Grand Trianon was built for recreation "in nature" in the classicism style, and the second Petit Trianon in the Rococo style belonged to the wife of Louis XIV, then Madame de Pompadour, the mistress of Louis XV, and then becomes the favorite place of Queen Marie Antoinette.

Be sure to visit Versailles for two of the most luxurious and opulent interior styles in history.
The main principles of this style in art were the departure from life to the world of fantasy, games, mythical plots and erotic situations. A grandiose, whimsical ornamental rhythm and romanticized oriental motives dominate. The interiors are graceful, decorative and lightweight.

The French Rococo style was known for colors like yellow, pink, gold, blue, cream, and ivory. The combination of pastel and gold tones is a characteristic feature of this style. Somewhat faded, iridescent coloring.

Carved and stucco patterns, torn cartouches, cupids' masks, reliefs, picturesque panels, erotic and pastoral silhouettes, asymmetrical composition, exquisite decoration based on Chinese art. Mirrors in gold openwork frames, tapestries, porcelain figurines, Chinese lacquer boxes, busts. Expensive fabrics: satin, silk, fabric flowers.

The Rococo bathroom is very romantic and spacious. You can use pastel, gilded or just white elements, stucco.

Mixers are preferably gold or bronze. Walls - tiles with floral or pastoral patterns. Ideal is a bathtub with metal legs and elements of carving, gilding.

The more luxurious, pretentious, carved plumbing and furniture is installed in the bathroom, the more readable the Rococo style will be.

Furniture with various gilding, painting, carved furniture is perfect for the Rococo style. The console will look good, preferably on high, slightly curved legs; additionally it can be equipped with drawers. The console also functions as a ladies' dressing table.

Antique dressers with gilded or copper fittings will look just as good.

The decorative art of Rococo belongs to the highest achievements of 18th century art in terms of sophistication, beauty of asymmetric compositions, in the spirit of intimacy, comfort and personal decoration.

The whole atmosphere and energy of this style is conveyed in the bibliographic film "Marie Antoinette" by Sofia Coppola about the life of Queen Marie Antoinette of France, filmed in 2006. The film was filmed at the Palace of Versailles.

Enjoy your viewing and creativity in the Rococo style!
