Dining room chest

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. CARPET ON THE CARPET. One large carpet in a room may look a bit old-fashioned. But such a non-standard decor method as placing several small rugs on it will enliven the atmosphere. We recommend paying attention to models with large patterns or embroidery. TIME MANAGEMENT IS NECESSARY IN THE CREATIVE PROCESS. After the choice of finishing materials is made, immediately proceed to their purchase or order. Refuse to be overly optimistic about delivery times. It is much more reasonable to assume that various delays and delays of suppliers are the norm, and not an exception to the rule. This principle will save a lot of time and energy. But do not forget to find a place in advance to store all the ordered materials and things.

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.
