You may have already defined the true nature of the Grangerford family. They are a traditionalist, stubborn, anal-retentive, feuding, violent, and iron-clad family with little to no care for human life.

In their house, tackiness is king, and suggest to a point a hint of their bipolar behavior: Curtains with castles and cows, all things elaborately painted. In the same line, items are placed and organized in specific places as if trying to convey a message of comfort and normality. All that contrasts with the reality of the family, which involves enemies, violence, evil, tempers, and death.
