You should also consider the placement of textures as you go about designing your room. Putting a smooth texture directly next to a rough one while make the rough object stand out more and seem weightier than if you space them apart. Use distance to determine how subtle of a visual weight you would like to achieve. We have said it before and we will say it again, contrast is essential when essential when it comes to design because it keeps things balanced and also provides visual interest.
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.
