Last thursday we exposed our mood boards,mine was about the architecture in Russia in 19th century.I put some pics of rooms and ceilings...and after we've been deciding how big would be the rooms and where would be situated the furniture and the decoration...
The carachterisitics of Baroque style in 19th century were:
-Dramatic use of light,light and shade contrasts
-Opulent use of colour and ornaments
-Large scale ceiling frescos
-External facade often characterized by a dramatic central projection
-Interior is a shell for painting,sculpture and stucco
-Illusory effects like 'trompe l'oeil' and the blending of painting and architecture
And about the architecture very spacious rooms,high ceilings,big windows...
