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.
CONVENIENCE OF FURNITURE IS MOST IMPORTANT TO ITS AESTHETICS. Furniture, perfect from the point of view of design, but inconvenient - according to the professional, is of poor quality. No matter how beautiful a thing would be, but if it does not cope with its function, it is better to refuse it. BEIGE IS NOT SO BAD AS ACCEPTED TO THINK. In recent years, in professional circles of decorators and designers it is generally accepted that the interior in a beige palette is a relic of the past. But such a categorical approach to the choice of colors is not justified. Cream, ivory or cappuccino, ecru, powdery ... There are a lot of shades of beige, and by combining them together you can create a truly impressive design. REMEMBER MIRRORS. A mirror is not only a reflective surface, which will help to make sure that everything is in order with the appearance. It is also a decor that has almost magical properties. Mirrors visually increase the space, make it brighter, airier and more refined. Decorators never forget this in the process.
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. CHOOSE ONE OF THREE PRINCIPLES OF FURNITURE SETUP. Everyone knows that it is better to refuse to place furniture along the walls. But what are the alternatives? The first option is a symmetrical arrangement, that is, around a certain point in the room (for example, the center of a room or window). The second is asymmetric, that is, not amenable to logic. The third is a circular arrangement, which differs from symmetrical in that the reference point may be a minor interior detail. For example, a chandelier or drawing on the carpet. 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. 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.
DISCLAIMER OF AGGRESSIVE FORMS AND COLORS. Most professional decorators are of the opinion that the main and necessary characteristics of a living space are comfort and a relaxing atmosphere. It is better to create a corner of calm in the house than to opt for aggressive shapes and colors. PERFECTLY NEUTRAL - GRAY BROWN. As the color, which can become a neutral background for the interior, most often choose between white, gray and beige. Professional decorators recommend paying attention to taupe. This color is harmonious in terms of the simultaneous warmth and coldness of its shade, and also does not bother for a long time. IMPORTANCE OF THE VISUAL ROOM CENTER. One of the key tasks a professional decorator faces is determining the visual center of the room. This is the point on which the gaze is concentrated first. For example, a large mirror, an unusual piece of furniture, or a lamp can act as a visual center. A room with a visual center looks more harmonious and orderly than not having it. STONE, METAL AND TREE AS A MORTGAGE OF COMFORT. Natural finishes, such as a stone wall or a wooden beam, in a small apartment may look ridiculous. In order to make the home more comfortable, it is better to use decor made from natural materials. Suitable wooden photo frames, marble busts, metal vases.
