Designers divide the Baroccan style into two types: Glambarocco and Neo-Baroque. By design, these types are similar, because the decoration in the rooms is done in bright colors using different contrasts with the same materials.

It is recommended to use plaster, wallpaper on textile basis, painted and varnished panels of wood as finishing materials.
Tip: choosing, for example, a baroque-style chair in an apartment, you can purchase a plastic model. But to underline the modernity and classics of style, it is desirable to add elaborate and ornate elements.
To display all the charms of the Baroque, you need to make the ceiling a continuation of a beautifully decorated wall, with different contrast with it. A special feature of Baroque designs is the fresco ceiling. Modern interpretation allows replacing the fresco with prints of stretch ceiling structures.
