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. 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. 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.
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.
