Modern Day Baroque Decor

Baroque style originated in Rome, Italy in the 17th century and spread throughout most of Europe. Its ornate, highly detailed look inspired paintings, sculptures, and architecture that still has a relevant place in design today. Its dramatic elegance has inspired other styles (such as Rococo), but its original form is still a popular aesthetic found in contemporary spaces.

The glamour of the Baroque is hard to mistake. It harnesses a classic beauty that can add a touch of charm to any space, often regardless of the main style present in the room. Even one piece in Baroque style can add a lot of character. Take a look at these modern examples of Baroque decor to get an idea of how timeless and inspiring this style truly is.
