They all have their individual traits. So, classicism is characterized by severity of forms, restraint of colors, spacious rooms, regular forms, a large number of stucco and sculptural decorations, as well as ornaments and columns.
Empire, as a more “advanced” version of classicism is more vivid and festive, but at the same time retained brevity and to the correct symmetry.
The Baroque is more dynamic and filled with all sorts of scenery. This style demonstrates wealth and luxury without any restrictions. He allows all sorts of liberties in the design.
Classical styles are also divided by countries in which the transformation of the original classicism took place. So, the main directions of architectural classics are French, English and Scandinavian classical style. In Russian country houses, the English version is more often used, with its color harmony and massive fireplaces in the living rooms.
