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.
Even though this is a small bedroom, it has been beautifully decorated. We like its cozyness and the way everything fits without making it feel cramped. The modern bed is complemented by vintage-inspired bedding and decorative pillows. It’s been placed in front of the window, leaving enough space for other essentials as well. The bedroom has a rich color palette complemented by various patterns and textures.
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.
Before we get into details, let’s talk a bit about the alternatives, in case an end of bed bench isn’t exactly what you had in mind for this room. There are plenty of other options to choose from. For example, you could put a small dresser at the end of the bed to add some extra storage to the room and to frame the bed at the same time. Another idea can be to put a desk there or to opt for a small sofa and perhaps even a coffee table if there’s enough space.
