LESS COLORS - PLEASANT ATMOSPHERE. Staying in the living space, where the entire color palette is collected, causes concern and anxiety. Therefore, if you want to create a pleasant and soothing interior, limit the number of colors used in it. DECOR EXCLUSION METHOD - THIS WORKS. In rooms where decor is redundant, it is worth trying the method of exclusion - just remove some of the little things. Leave only the most colorful, but at the same time simple things, the presence of which really benefits the interior. The free space looks much more comfortable than it is filled with knick-knacks. BALANCE BETWEEN VIOLATION AND COMPLIANCE WITH THE RULES. To create a truly outstanding room in terms of decor, you have to step over a number of rules. But there are laws that are strictly not recommended to be violated. For example, among them are the rules for mixing prints, the non-observance of which will make any interior disharmonious.
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.
