    “Modern” should be distinguished  from a general sense of the word "modern" and from the conception of modernism. The main feature of the Modern style - decorative, the main motif – clambering plant, the basic principle - the assimilation of the natural handmade form and vice versa. This is reflected in the architecture, the details of buildings,in the ornament, which received an extraordinary development. The lines of the ornament carried the spiritual and emotional intensity and symbolic sense. The slogan of modern - "closer to nature." A characteristic feature - a complex system of ornament with stylized flowers and plants, and sometimes birds. Art of Modern is recognizable by abstract forms, but a living, organic, breathing and growing. The main expressive form and motif of Modern style became the line, but not straight, but flexible, lively, whimsical, elegant, soulful. Language of Modern art - are abstract forms, but living, organic.

    "Baroque". In the Baroque combined the two concepts, namely: style and way of life. The distinctive features of the Baroque are the spatial scope, grandeur, magnificence and luxury, splendor, the solemnity, dynamic, life-affirming character. Baroque art characterized by bold contrasts of scale, light and shadow, color, combining reality and fantasy. The peculiarity of the Baroque - no respect of the Renaissance harmony for more emotional contact with the audience.
    It should be noted that the variability and a game of images of this style you can compared with sea shell, in honor of which will be named this style. Baroque – this is plasticity of the forms used in decorating of jewelry, fancy ornate designs and patterns as well as heoght, bulk ans superiority

    "Classicism". At the heart of classicism is the ideas of rationalism, which were formed simultaneously with the same ideas in the philosophy of Descartes. The work of art in terms of classicism must be based on a strict canon, thereby revealing the harmony and consistency of the universe. Classicism characterized by a strict-discipline, poise, clarity and harmonious manner. The main symptoms - severe repetitive lines, smooth generalized picture, symmetry and simplicity. Classicism inherent in beautiful geometric forms, restrained decor, expensive materials. At the heart of classicism are the ideas of rationalism. Predominant colors: vivid colors, green, pink, purple with gold accents, sky-blue.

    "High-tech". All the interior, carried out in this superb modern style, are made by only the most new, high-performance technologies. It should be noted that in this style, specially exhibited for show the following elements: pipes, valves, air ducts, elevators, bridges, beams, trusses, cables, and many others. High-tech is characterized by strict, geometric, simple and concise manner.
