Features of the facade of the house
First, let's look at the main features that are used to create the appearance of a house. Modern designs of houses in this style focus on using from the outside only some individual elements. After all, to reproduce the building exactly as in the Middle Ages will be very expensive and inappropriate. Especially when it comes to an ordinary apartment building.
The facade of the house recalls the medieval times. The main highlight of the Baroque building was the arched windows.
Finishing the facade of natural stone in gray-beige tones is the right choice for the Baroque style.
So, for the exterior decoration of the facade, there are usually used multiple columns. It is very functional to do them on the porch and veranda. So they will perform not only decorative, but also their direct function - to support certain designs.
Windows in the Baroque style is very difficult to make. First, it is absolutely inappropriate to put modern plastic double-glazed windows. Secondly, even wooden frames will require a sophisticated finish. To create an imitation of this style, it will be necessary to make moldings around the frames using a special solution - without this the building will not look the way it should.

As for the color scheme of the facade, three colors are used: brown, white and gray. You can use black. All this can be combined or used only one or two shades. The main thing in the decoration of the facade is relief.
And now we turn to the consideration of the interior features in the Baroque style.
They can be divided into several categories. This design of walls, ceiling and floor, doors and windows, the selection of furniture and textiles, individual small elements of decor. To understand what this style represents in the interior, let's consider everything in detail.

Decoration of walls, ceiling and floor
So, the walls. The main thing here is to create an atmosphere of the royal palace. Two variants of wall decoration are used: painting and wallpaper. If the choice has stopped on painting, then the colors are pale-pistachio, tender-lilac, golden or silver hues. But only there should not be too much brightness.

Mandatory make stucco from gypsum cardboard, which will create visual columns. If it is decided to glue the wallpaper, then it's better to stop the choice on wallpaper of the same shades, in burgundy or red tones, on which there is a clearly outlined picture of flowers or royal ornament (Figure 1). Half-columns are also welcome here.
Now, as to the floor and ceiling. The ceiling must be high. Around the chandelier, stucco molding is done, the transitions from the ceiling to the walls are also decorated with stucco moldings. And the more there is bump in them, the better it will emphasize the style. Welcome multi-level ceilings and stretch matte, which used heavenly shades.

Floors must imitate exceptionally expensive wood species. This is considered one of the most expensive elements of this style. Therefore, use high-quality expensive parquet, laminate or a set parquet board.
Doors with windows should be only wooden, preferably of dark wood. Necessarily carved to emphasize the pomposity of the Baroque. On functionality it is not very convenient. But this style requires. Welcome stained glass films on the glass, but only single inclusions are appropriate.

Furniture, textiles and small parts
The most expensive and difficult is to choose furniture in a baroque room. Whatever it is - living room, bedroom or corridor, you need to use furniture from solid wood or metal. Here all the wealth should be real. No imitation wood with veneer, chipboard and other cheap materials will not work.
For all wooden and metal furniture it is important that as much as possible of it is done by hand. It is necessary to have carved legs at tables and chairs. All doors should not be smooth, but with relief. Ideally look cut leaves, masks, emblems and other similar attributes.
Particular attention should be paid to upholstered furniture. Well, if the sofas and armchairs will be leather - this option is a win-win. But if there is no such possibility, you can use the fabric under the skin, natural silk. The main thing is to use very expensive and durable fabrics (Figure 2).
An excellent example of choosing furniture for the living room in the Baroque style.

Curtains should be matched in the color of furniture and carpets. And it is not necessary that they are the same shades. The main thing is that they should echo each other at least in some way. Here motley drawings are already welcome, but monochrome curtains or carpets will look just as good.
In this case, the carpets must be necessarily thick and with a high pile. A curtain is best to choose a complex, with transitions and lambrequins. Excellent classic classic garters for curtains, which will attract attention.
In addition to all this, you need to use some of the decor elements: antique paintings in expensive carved frames, figurines and vases, which are considered a rarity, as well as a fireplace if it is a living room or a bedroom. It also needs to be decorated with reliefs that resonate with the wooden furniture.
