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. . 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. SELECTING A PHOTO AND PICTURES IS A BUSINESS OF THE OWNERS, NOT A DECORATOR. In the choice of paintings and photographs that will become the decor for the room, the deep preferences of the owners of the house are fully manifested. Therefore, the decorator is better not to interfere in this process, but only to choose the appropriate frames or mat. If the owner of the house does not like photos or paintings, then it is better to leave the wall empty.
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.
