ROMANTIC ROCOCO: how to create art-inspired interior

Rococo is an art style that gained popularity in late 18th century in Europe, when beauty, elegance, and light was celebrated above all else. The term Rococo is believed to have been formed from two French words, "rocaille", meaning stone and "coquilles", meaning shell, two items extensively used as motifs of decoration during this period.
