In the Middle Ages, upper class Britons and other European nobility in castles or large manor houses dined in the great hall. This was a large multi-function room capable of seating the bulk of the population of the house. The family would sit at the head table on a raised dais, with the rest of the population arrayed in order of diminishing rank away from them. Tables in the great hall would tend to be long trestle tables with benches. The sheer number of people in a Great Hall meant it would probably have had a busy, bustling atmosphere. Suggestions that it would also have been quite smelly and smoky are probably, by the standards of the time, unfounded. These rooms had large chimneys and high ceilings and there would have been a free flow of air through the numerous door and window openings.
MORE FANTASY WHEN CHOOSING PLACES FOR ART SUBJECTS. The picture hanging over the sofa is a standard variant of interior decoration with paintings. But in this case, she is behind the back of most people in the room. Select for the picture a place where they will really look at it. For example, in the corridor. LEARN THE COMBINATION OF FLOWERS FROM GREAT ARTISTS. If you have problems with self-selection of colors or using the classic color wheel seems too boring, then try to use the color scheme of paintings by great artists as an example. Choose the masters that are closer to you - Matisse, Monet, Klimt ... The list goes on and on. PRECISE TEXTILE CALCULATIONS. If high-quality textiles are chosen for interior decoration, a purchase with a large margin can be a real test for a wallet. Therefore, it is better to calculate the exact amount of tissue in advance. A solid supply is necessary in cases where textiles with a large pattern are selected (after all, it will be necessary to combine details), as well as in the absence of confidence in the professionalism of the sewing master. Do not forget to include the fringe and frills in the calculations, of course, if they are provided.
SELECTING A PHOTO AND PICTURES IS A BUSINESS OF THE OWNERS, NOT A DECORATOR. In the choice of paintings and photographs that will become the decor for the room, the deep preferences of the owners of the house are fully manifested. Therefore, the decorator is better not to interfere in this process, but only to choose the appropriate frames or mat. If the owner of the house does not like photos or paintings, then it is better to leave the wall empty. UNFairly FORGOTTEN CEILINGS. A non-standard step that can radically transform the space - increased attention to the design of the ceiling. Most often they forget about it. For example, a black ceiling instead of the usual white will make the room exclusive. CLASSICAL RULE OF THREE. Items collected in a composition of three should differ in three ways - shape, color and size. For example, you should not put three identical photos on the mantelpiece. It is preferable to choose a photo, a vase and a book as a decor - objects that differ in each other according to all the mentioned signs. GOOD TASTE - THIS CONDITION. At first glance, the concept of "good taste" is fundamental in the design and decoration of the interior. But in reality it is conditional. It is better to focus not on observing the boundaries of good taste, but on whether a particular decorating solution is suitable for a particular room.
QUIET BEDROOM DRAWING. To decorate the entire living space with multilayer textile structures is redundant. But in the bedroom, draperies will be appropriate. They not only create a relaxing atmosphere, but also have good noise and light absorbing properties. LIVING FLOWERS ARE ALWAYS RELEVANT. Living plants in pots or flower bouquets are a win-win decor for any room, regardless of its style and purpose. Even a single flower in a tall glass vase will create a pleasant atmosphere. PICTURES OR POSTERS - AT THE LEVEL OF VIEW. The optimal height for placing paintings or posters is at the height of the eye, that is, approximately 1.6 m from the floor. If a group of images is placed on the wall, then at the level of view it is worth hanging the central element of such a decorative composition. CARPET OF RIGHT SIZES - WHAT IS IT? Too small or large carpet can disrupt the proportionality of the interior. Therefore, professional decorators are guided by a number of rules when choosing a carpet. The carpet under the dining table should be wide enough so that the rear legs of the retracted chairs are on it. Under the bed, it is necessary to place a mat protruding from under it by 40-60 cm. Otherwise, getting out of bed, you have to step on your feet on a cold floor. Another important point: regardless of the size of the room, the carpet should not come close to its walls. If the room is large, then 30-45 cm of floor remains free from the carpet, small - up to 20 cm.
