Ode to Rococo

"Rococo (less commonly roccoco) is a style of 18th century French art and interior design Rococo rooms were designed as total works of art with elegant and ornate furniture, small sculptures, ornamental mirrors, and tapestry complementing architecture, reliefs, and wall paintings. It was largely supplanted by the Neoclassic style." Source

Some may think it's a bit over the top, I on the other hand love it!!!

I think this wardrobe is beautiful!!! It's so shabby chic! Yum yum yum!
The detail that the carved and painted into their furniture is just exquisite! Just chuck out the detail on this bed:

It wasn't just their furniture that they went all out with. The dresses were covered in ruffles, lace, embroidery and ribbons. They were made out of light fabrics of pale colours.
