What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Scale." A scale is a triangular, ruler-like device architects use to determine dimensions, but it more often refers to how the sizes of architectural elements relate to one another. When an architect says something like, "The scale of that building is all wrong," it generally means that the building's size doesn't fit its surroundings. If a building has a "good scale," it implies that the pieces are sized to correlate with one another.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

Proportion This room has proportion with the painting and curtains. This adds the effect of makes the room seem even taller than it actually is because the curtains and painting is proportionate to the height of the ceiling
chapmama001 added this to Amajhe Chapman's Element and Principles of Design Block One.
last Wednesday
Proportion. This element is used on the main big window. It's proportioned to fit along the big wall and see the view outside.
The furniture in this room is an example of proportion. The curtains are proportionate to the height of the windows, the table is proportionate to the length of the room, and the height of the chairs is proportionate to the height of the table. The proportion in this space makes it functional and balanced.

Space. This room is a great example of space. It encompasses a lot of mass and area, but is not overwhelming. It is very open. This room shows great examples of design and in my opinion, is very well put together. It is simple yet every simple thing has depth and has reasoning. There is a great balance on space that is being used, and space that isn't. Space is very important to a room because it sets everything up. The style of the room, the proportion, scale, and many more elements are dependent on the space.

Scale: This dining room is an example of scale. The dining table is on a much smaller scale compared to the height of the interior. However, the dining table and rug add visual weight to counter balance the room height. The floor to ceiling windows and drapes and over-sized art piece are appropriate for the scale of the space. However, the light fixture above the table is small scale.
