The meaning of "Hi" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does Hi, could anyone tell me the meaning of the phrase which highlighted in this passage ?
Thanks !! mean?
A: okay so this line is talking about the interior decor.
"The luxurious Parisian notes" refer to the parts of the decor that are Parisian (of or from Paris) whether it be vases, paintings, lamps, etc. The second part is a little more ambiguous. "offer themselves to a fiercely feminine interior." basically means that the Parisian parts are paired with the extremely feminine interior. I would understand (from this sentence) that the Parisian parts of the design pair very well with the feminine design.

Q: What is the difference between Hello and Hi ?
A: Hi is more informal than Hello.

You can say:
Good day or good evening - formal
Hello - neutral
Hi - slightly informal
Hey - very informal

US English is pretty informal, so we rarely say "good day" or "good evening". You can say "hello" to almost anyone.
You can say "hi" to anyone except someone who is very superior. (I would say "hi" to my boss, but not to the President.)
You can say "hey" to a friend.

("Good morning" and "good evening" are not as formal as "good day" or "good evening".)
Q: What is the difference between Hi! I'm John! and Hello! I'm John! ?
A: They mean the same thing but the word hi is used more casually, like if you are taking to s friend or family member. Hello is more often used professionally, like when applying for a job, greying a new client, so on. It does not matter which one you use. Either one can be used anytime.

- don’t do that (please)
- you shouldn’t do that
- that’s not nice
- that’s naughty
- mummy doesn’t like that
