Whole spaces were commonly made in the Rococo design, with ceilings, walls, furnishings, sculptures, ornamental mirrors, paintings and tapestries developed to flow together effortlessly.
Wood sculpted Rococo is one of the more tough styles to design and replicate correctly. Lines are non-existent changed by flourishes, sweeps and curves. Features on the contrary side of a mirror frame or panel balance separately unbalanced aspects.

To make this style well you have to capture this and afterwards go deep into all your senses and bear in mind everything you understand in nature about flow, movement and the development of a vortex– then forget it.
