Going for Baroque
Anne Sage of The City Sage is here to talk trends! Read on for her expert take on the Baroque craze that’s certain to be big this fall.
When I first heard wind of this fall’s trend for Baroque details, I was skeptical. My taste veers more toward the simple than the sumptuous; the unadorned than the opulent. But when I saw the runways’ elaborate offerings, I couldn’t resist the idea of working just a few Baroque touches into my home and wardrobe. After all, who says I have to worship at the feet of Louis XIV? Can’t I just tip my hat his way instead?

Catch a few of the Sun King’s rays with elements like scrollwork and metallic finishes; damasks and filigrees; jewel tones and medallion shapes. Pick one piece for subtle impact–perhaps a tone-on-tone pillow to swap out with your usual couch cushion–or haul in an entire palace’s worth of gilt goodies and play princess for a day!
