Tapestries can make a room, there is a richness and a warmth in the colours and texture of the weaving, they are usually large and can fill a wall, giving a luxurious atmosphere and sense of grandeur.
Seen below is a late 17th early 18th century Aubusson tapestry depicting the Rape of Europa, the colours are predominately blue and are picked up by the same blue used in the curtains.

The rooks are already taking up their places by last year's nests behind the village church
