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.
"YES" SEASONAL CHANGE OF PARTS. Finding those who have in stock several sets of curtains and bedspreads is an extremely difficult task. Very vain. After all, such a simple technique as a seasonal change of textiles can radically transform the interior. ATTENTION TO SCALE. A moment that at first glance seems obvious, but is not always respected - the proportionality of details to the interior as a whole. So, a huge picture in a small bedroom will look like an alien element, like a miniature sofa in a spacious living room. ORDER MANDATORY FOR A COLLECTOR. The best advice for collectors of medium-sized things, whether cat figurines or pebbles of an unusual shape, is to keep them grouped in one place, and not randomly placed around the room. Chaos from little things can spoil even a very decent interior.
CUSTOMER'S WISHES - DO NOT DISTURB, AND HELP. A professional decorator considers working with a difficult customer not as bad luck, but as an opportunity to increase his own efficiency. A demanding customer who is difficult to please stimulates the search for innovative solutions. DARK TONES - NOT ONLY FOR BIG ROOMS. A small room, dominated by dark tones, looks no worse than light. Conversely, saturated colors dominate the boundaries of space, diverting attention from its modest size. CEILING IN COLOR OF WALLS - MAXIMUM COMFORT. The ceiling and walls of the same color - an excellent reception of decorators, allowing you to visually increase the height of the room. In addition, another positive effect is achieved - the atmosphere in the room becomes as comfortable and relaxing as possible. STYLE - THIS CONDITION. Denying the boundaries of existing styles is not part of our plans. But in the process of decorating living space, you should not strictly observe them. Much more important is how the owners of the house feel themselves in it, and not the full compliance of the design with a certain style.
THE SAME SANITARY COLOR IS MANDATORY. In pursuit of original solutions, you may get the idea to install plumbing in different colors. For example, the sink is white and the bathtub is black. It is better to refuse such an idea at the initial stage, because the result of its implementation will be a disharmonious interior. BIG AND SMALL IN ONE ROOM. The rules of scale, according to which the sizes of objects should correspond to the area of the room, have not been canceled. But in order for the situation to acquire character and expressiveness, it is worth a little to move away from its strict observance. One or two large objects in a small room will contribute to a visual increase in space. COLOR NUANCES THAT MATTER. The generally accepted opinion is that all colors are divided into two groups - warm and cold. But in reality, every color, even white, can refer to one or the other group. It all depends on its shade. The same white can have a cold bluish tone (for example, both the color of the snow) and warm brownish (ivory). CREATIVITY IS MORE THAN PRINCIPLES AND RULES. Knowledge of various rules helps professional decorators to navigate the world of design, to acquire a basis for further development. But for each specific case only part of the existing principles and rules is applicable. Therefore, the creative component of the decoration process is a priority.
