BATTLE MASSES DESTROY THE ROOM ADVANTAGES. Many small decorative details make it impossible to focus on the features of the interior or architectural features of the room. But if the task is to distract attention from the old decoration or furniture, then an extensive collection of decor can help. 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. HARMONY OF CLOSE FLOWERS. The simplest but really working method to create a harmonious color scheme in the room is to combine close colors. For example, several shades of green. To the interior does not look monotonous, add a few prints to it.

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.
