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.
SMALL PHOTOS - ON A TABLE OR SHELVES, BUT NOT A WALL. Many miniature photos or other images decorating the wall are perceived as visual noise. But on the table or shelves they look appropriate. It is advisable to arrange such decor in similar or identical frames. 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.
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. OWNERS 'HOUSES AND DECORATOR - NOT OPPONENTS, AND PARTNERS. The optimal scheme of interaction with customers that decorators adhere to is a productive interaction, which is commonly referred to as "we". LUXURY OF COMPLEX FACTS FOR FURNITURE UPHOLSTERY. The usual version of upholstery for furniture is a dense, lint-free fabric. But it is worth abandoning it in favor of fluffy upholstery, and the interior will look in a new way. It is not necessary to decorate all furniture with artificial or natural fur. One or two items in the room will be enough. 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. LAWS FOR A WALL DECOR COLLECTION. If the wall is decorated with several photos, plates or large-sized posters, then between them there should be 8-10 cm of free space. Place the small decor closer to each other. Between the wall decor and large pieces of furniture under it is better to leave 15-25 cm of an empty wall. THE MAIN CRITERION FOR CHOOSING A DECOR IS POSITIVE EMOTIONS. Often, the external environment is not the most friendly for a modern person. Therefore, professional decorators for living spaces prefer to use decor that evokes only positive emotions. After all, the negative is enough outside the house. 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.
