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.
FREEDOM OF THE CENTRAL PART OF THE TABLE. Huge bouquets standing in the central part of the table most often look disharmonious, and also make communication between people who eat food difficult. A massive vase with large flowers is best replaced with a wicker basket or a decorative pot with several flowering plants. . LEAVE SPACE FOR MANEUVERS. As practice shows, to fully plan the upcoming purchases of decor and strictly adhere to this plan is an almost impossible task. Therefore, it is better to leave a little free space, which will take the fruits of impulsive purchases. STORAGE SYSTEMS: BETTER MORE THAN LESS. Storage systems are not only sliding wardrobes, dressers and mezzanines. No less important in the interior are boxes, vases and bowls, where little things are added. So the interior will give the impression of an orderly and neat.
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. 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. CORRIDOR OR ENTRANCE HALL AS A BUSINESS HOUSE CARD. Corridor, hall or hallway - the space that we see first at the entrance to the dwelling, as well as the last at the exit from it. Therefore, these rooms, which are unfairly forgotten to decorate, are the hallmarks of the house. Choose a functional and compact decor, because the hall or corridor most often has a small area.
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. 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. DROP, LUXURY, ALWAYS RELEVANT. Even if a minimalist style is chosen for decoration, there is a place for a couple of luxurious details in it. Large items, for example, a sofa or a carpet, should not play their role at all. To save money, you can order tailoring of covers from high-quality textiles on pillows or furniture. 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.
