Of Baroque and True Tradition
Baroque is the pinnacle of tradition – it cherishes a rich ostentatiousness that comes from layer upon layer of interior décor in various textures and contrasting themes. The Baroque style was basically a revolt against the simplicity of the budding simplicity of modern styles of that age, and so the implementation of architectural elements and interior scaping was done twofold. This resulted in an increase in the volume of the space to accommodate the richness of the overall theme. The Baroque style appreciated a lustrous interior scape that adorned a theme of dark and bold colors along with a gold trimming on the very periphery. It also came with an illustrious first impression with a play on light and shadows that made it more dramatic. Modern interpretations of the Baroque style tend to be a bit more lightweight compared to their predecessors, and in this article we would be taking a look at a few contemporary style interior that have taken a turn for baroque.
White, Cream, and Tradition
This traditional come modern interior uses a Victorian flair to enhance the voraciousness of classic integration into its detailing. However, it is the fixtures in this room that play on the traditional vibe, and not so much the wall detailing, which is simply modern. Overall, this interior is the perfect blend to contemporary and traditional, with the white of the color scheme balancing out the stuffiness of the Baroque Style fixtures that line the room.
This traditional interior is more of a hybrid Baroque with the black acting as almost an outline for the white of the overall color scheme. The stylistic expression is vast in the light curves of the fixtures and the straight lines of the accessories that define the subtle nuances of this design.
This interior theme works on a simpler aesthetic, where most of the space is manipulated to follow a rather stark setting. The fixtures, however, take charge of the situation once again – the clean lines of this furniture design do not stop it from seeming distinctly baroque – there is just a sleek quality to the design that is highlighted by the zig zagging of the top design.
This interior seems to try to bridge the gap between a contemporary and traditional setting – but instead of meeting halfway, the entire theme seems to be leaning in a single direction – modern. However, the richness and the gold of the color scheme more than makes up for the single minded design quality.
