While texture may play a supporting role to the function of the space, it is no less vital to a designs success. Instead of examples of texture above, picture trying to get comfortable on a seating set made of granite. Always consider how texture will elevate the overall experience of your design. Odds are, if you have been hanging around design websites for a while, you have heard the term visual weight getting thrown around a lot.
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.
