The Baroque style is perfect for an interior of a spacious bathroom. The essence of this style consists of its name – the word baroque has come from the Italian language and means «strange, freakish».

The main motive of Baroque is the sea bowl. Its smooth, roundish outlines are reproduced practically in all details of a decor: in furniture, in a stucco moulding of a ceiling and walls, and in accessories.

The Baroque style recognizes only massiveness; therefore a lot of the free space is necessary. Elaborate complexity of ornaments, smoothness of lines and a gilding abundance are inherent in an interior. Walls are not of the sharp corners – they should be rounded. A typical decor consists of a stucco moulding, bas-reliefs and even the sculptural groups. Vertical surfaces are like created for columns, pilasters, and the big mirrors in the heavy gilt frames.

Ceiling in a Baroque style is the list on the centre and the plentiful gilt stucco moulding in the perimeter. Dominating elements of a stucco moulding are the garlands from leaves, curls and fruits. It is desirable to make the floor from a natural stone – a marble tile is used more often.

The independent bath is better. It is necessary to put it in the room centre. A heavy pig-iron bath with the raised back and the shod legs covered with gilding look very greatly. The bowl in the Baroque style represents a deep massive bowl with a convex vegetative relief.

In spite of the fact that Baroque is the elaborate style, it is better to have a little furniture: a heavy wooden case, a rack for the dressing gowns and towels.

It is interesting
The Baroque style itself is decorative; therefore it is not necessary to exercise the wit with the accessories. Panels on the wall, a small angular sculpture or a floor vase are quite enough.
