Galleries and museums hang artwork so that the midline or center of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. The average human eye level is 57 inches. And you should do the same. In a room like this, where the ceilings soar, there might be a tendency to hang the art higher. But remember, it needs to relate to human scale, not the structures scale.
Think blue and white is the equivalent of black and white, it is just not as fierce. It is more welcoming to most people. Working within a streamlined color palette not only helps the rooms themselves feel cohesive, but it also helps with the transitions between rooms. When you are in the middle of the foyer and you are able to see all the other rooms throughout, you have the same family of colors repeated but in different ways in each space.
