Neo-Baroque Style in the Modern Interior

Wednesday, 07 April 2010

neo-baroque style modern interior designThe inventive and pompous style of neo-baroque occurred in the end of XX century as the exceptional challenge to all the set traditions of functionality and simple design in the end of the previous century. Straightforwardness and minimalism of the modern interior caused the designers and consumers get bored. And brighter, more intensified colors and color contrasts appeared to be demanded, especially the fanciful classic decor of baroque from neo-classic material. Neo-baroque is the performance, the unique show off, luxury baroque mixed with modern avant-gardism. Neo-baroque in the modern interior is met as the slight challenge to the society when the classic forms and decorations are mixed with the newest materials. Neo-baroque style is houses or rooms where the feeling of light euphoria occurs, illusory quality of the being, and the design shifts the owners into the mysterious and wonderful fairy tale of life.

Baroque introduced curved lines, scrolls, pompous shapes, all sorts of lighting, complicated curved contours of the interior elements and the flamboyant colors. The intensive blue, crimson, scarlet, emerald-green colors matched with the dark wood and gilding creates the feeling of holiday.

All these details and elements are expressly highlighted in the neo-baroque style thanks to the application of modern fabric - stained glass, various kinds of plastic, tiles, synthetic fabric are wonderfully matched with wood and stone. Blazing «medical» light is close to the mute lamp bracket, neon light with candles, habitual functional items with the mirror in the heavy gilded frame with roses and curls, stucco work is sometimes replaced with the plastic details. This style is especially attractive for collectors, since in neo-baroque interior the collection of either wine or butterflies is one of the compulsory elements. The designers often make the new style approaches on the old baroque base and every single interior style in neo-baroque occurs to be eye-striking and incredible.

In spite of the pompous and pretentious performance of neo-baroque interiors, this style is too luxury and it is often used for restaurants and boutiques. For example, «Tiffany’s Café» restaurant in St. Petersburg is made in this style. The vivid and flamboyant luxury mixed with the unique materials gives the striking results. The floor is made with tiles of limestone of the Jurassic period, and there are fourteen lusters from the Muran glass, hand-made decorated walls, Italian furniture, collection tableware and you come into the luxury fairy tale.

On the other hand, neo-baroque affords to match the contrast details. For example, «Kokon-light» boutique in Odessa performed in this style is opened with spacious premises, minimalism in furniture and the bright light. The first thing to catch the sight is the luxury light, the airy table and small classic sofa. All these details look like the vignette that decorate and trim the collections of famous companies.

Modern materials provide the opportunity to make the interior in the neo-baroque style with functional and delicate and unique design. The match of glittering window walls and the unique luster seemed to be awesome and weird, at the same time. Crystals, glass, mirrors and light – all basic approaches used by «Maison Baccarat» to create the fairy tale about the Snow Queen. However, the warmth of this interior will thaw the ice in the hearts.

Neo-baroque is often used in restaurants and boutiques as if creating the scenes with the refined food, luxury clothes and beautiful people. The houses made in this style appear on the stage among the modern structures from glass and concrete. For example, the Roman Catholic Church of Ruzhentsova Mother of God in Grodnen area with the snow-white walls and modern trimming, the railway station in Slonim in the same area and the Church of St. John the Baptist in Benyakoni.

Every single style is individual and unique when the interior highlights the house and the designer. Neo-baroque is slightly affected and illusory, artistic and showy and at the same time is the modern style which came from the past in the new image.

Whatever serious we are, from the deep inside we are the children and we keep to the fairy tale which is made in soft curls and refined elegant details of neo-baroque.
