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.
DECOR EXCLUSION METHOD - THIS WORKS. In rooms where decor is redundant, it is worth trying the method of exclusion - just remove some of the little things. Leave only the most colorful, but at the same time simple things, the presence of which really benefits the interior. The free space looks much more comfortable than it is filled with knick-knacks. 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. FOLLOW-UP OF WORK. In order to avoid unnecessary problems, think in advance the sequence of work on decorating and decorating the premises and follow it. Otherwise, it may happen that the wall, already pasted with wallpaper, will have to be ditched.
BALANCE OF LIGHT AND SHADOW. In many ways, the appearance of a living room is determined by how balanced light and shadow are in it. Therefore, proper illumination is very important. For example, for the convenience of staying in residential lighting, a multi-level layout of lighting fixtures is mandatory. Lighting also affects the perception of colors. 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 omnipresent "GOLD SECTION". Decoration is one of many areas where the principle of the "golden section" can and should be applied. What is its essence? Suppose the whole is divided into two unequal parts. Most are 0.618 of the whole, and the smaller is 0.382 of the larger. At the same time, the smaller part relates to the larger one as the large to the whole. A similar size ratio is perceived by the human eye as close to ideal. 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.
THE COMBINATION OF BLACK AND WHITE WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE. White is considered one of the most versatile in the interior color palette. In many ways, this opinion also exists due to the wide range of its compatibility with other colors. But professional decorators are wary of black and white color duets. This maximum contrast combination looks too sharp for living space. An exception are paintings in a black frame on a white wall, which unobtrusively add graphic art to the interior. HOBBY IN VIEW. Items that are used in the process of studying your favorite hobby can also become a decor. For example, even the canvas by the window, skeins of thread with knitting needles or an unusual form of sewing machine can decorate the interior. LINE STRENGTH. Different types of lines are able to create a certain atmosphere in the interior. Vertical (for example, columns) give the atmosphere grandeur and severity; horizontal (lockers, sofas) - calm and confidence; diagonal (stair railing) - dynamism; curves (round table or smooth arm arms) - sensuality and softness. In order for the interior to look expressive, it should combine different types of lines. PRINCIPLE OF SWING FOR FURNITURE SETTING. High furniture in the interior should be adjacent to the lower, so that the view slides up and down, as if along the path of the swing. By the way, this principle is also relevant for small interior details, for example, decor. If things of the same size are placed nearby, then the interior will seem overloaded in some areas and empty in others.
