Rococo revival

Rococo is en vogue. Even IKEA, poster child for pure Swedish style,  has been jumping on the bandwagon although their furniture are toned down. Rococo became a popular style in Europe between 1700 - 1750. A fine example of rococo architecture is Schloss Schönbrunn in Vienna, Austria. I can highly recommend visiting the Schloss and the surrounding park.

Don't you agree that rococo style is truly 'European Chic' (as long as it it sparsely used).

Remember, I blogged about a hotel decorated in modern rococo style here ?
