The first element of these styles to consider is gold. Because wood was always a prominent feature in Baroque furniture, gilding was often applied and the ornamentation was almost always done in gold. This bedroom features several telling characteristics, such as the extravagant gold ornamentation atop the tufted headboard. While that is decidedly Baroque, the lavish bedding is more Rococo because it is made from silk.
The textures you use are also important. In the case of a warm color palette such as the one described above, you can use soft textures and fabrics. You can use silk or cotton. After you’ve decided on a main color scheme for the room you’ll have to add a few accents. They don’t have to follow the same lines. In fact, it’s best if they don’t because this way they stand out and the contrasts become focal points. Accent features such as throw pillows, artwork, decorations, area rugs, etc. should be more colorful. You can opt for bold and vibrant shades that will complement your black furniture beautifully.
You’re missing on a lot of decor opportunities if you’re utilizing the space at the foot of your bed for anything. It may seem like an insignificant thing to do but placing a bed bench there can really improve the decor and ambiance in the room. Bedroom benches are not must-have furniture piece but they definitely have an important role in the overall aspect of this space. The great thing about them is that there are so many different design possibilities and so many variations that you can be sure you’ll find something that suits your style and needs. If not, you can always improvise or having something custom-made just for you.
Not sure about the difference between Baroque and Rococo? In short, Baroque refers to a period spanning from the 17th century until the beginning of the 18th century and is epitomized by Louis the XIVth and Versailles. It is opulent and a heavier style – more “serious.” Rococo is often considered a subset of the Baroque era, sometimes even called late Baroque. It is typically lighter, more feminine and whimsical. Giving a bedroom a touch of Baroque or Rococo is easy to do. Personal preference will drive how much of the look is appropriate for you.
