Nice work for that room ! but im seeing alot of comments about sizing of trim. It seems as though the golden ratio has been forgotten. The Greeks discovered the secret,they called it "The Golden Mean or ratio". It says that you should think in percentages for color, mass, and even texture.
You should have about 70% of any one thing; 25% of a related thing, and just 5% of a contrasting thing. Two quantities are said to be in the Golden ratio, if "the whole is to the larger as the larger is to the smaller". Equivalently, they are in the golden ratio if the ratio of the larger one to the smaller one equals the ratio of the smaller one to their difference.
A great architectural example is the parthenon basically the golden rectangle like a credit card phi on one side 1 on the other... a geometric example would be the pythagorean theorem, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the square of the opposite two sides (if memory serves me?
Anyway, you can work with those numbers as you see fit, for example take the total area of the walls and divide. Walls=70%
Openings=25% Trims=5% Or you can take the height of the walls, 8' divide that by 5% you'll get 4.8 so a 4 1/2 crown? All this flies in the face of the (7%) solution i've been hearing about. Bottom line if you like it, isn't that really all that maters?

The 7 percent solution. When sizing a baseboard in a traditional-style home, a good starting point is to use a ratio of 7 percent. So if your ceiling height is 8 feet high, try a baseboard that's about 7 inches tall.
