We are adding a cathedral ceiling in our Ranch style house (living room, main entrance) and it will follow from the low point of the roof up to the peak.

My question is what can i do with the wall that is no being extended upwards approx 9-10ft? When you walk in the house that will be facing you and just a plan wall will look just that, plain. A picture that high will look out of place...any other suggestions?

A large wall hanging in the form of an indian blanket, throw rug, curtain, or other kind of tapestry - something that goes with the other decor in color and style.

Thanks for the reply, but throw rugs or anything of that type would be out of the question (spousal thumbs down ). I was thinking of building a shelf into the wall (seeing how it will just take some of my attic space away) so I can put crystal or something of that nature up there, but think it would look funny and be a nightmare to keep clean from dust, etc..

In that case my only advice is to keep it consistent in color and style with the trim in that part of the house. That way it won't look like an add-on.
