Room treatment will be a prominent role.  How you tune the room is more of a factor as opposed to room dimensions.  Once the piano is in the room you need to experiment with various wall coverings, rugs and furniture.  A large piano in a small room will not necessarily sound out of place if the room treatment is carefully considered. 

Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

Also piano placement as well as voicing  and what position you have the lid set at will make a difference as well. My piano is 6ft and if between what Quantum said and what I just said is set up all wrong, it can really hurt my ears when played heavy. Not so if those things are right. The room is roughly 17x13 with 9 ft ceiling so not so different from your setup really. Once my wife had this idea that we should put the piano into a corner with the seat out in the main room ( the center of the width of the piano was in line with the center of the corner of the room). It was horrible, the sound bounced off the right hand wall and just crashed my right ear. The low stick on this piano puts the lid open about 1ft. That has always put the nicest sound into this room. It's more mellow when closed down and more brash fully open. Right now it's set up to send sound the length of the room. Most of it's life it has sent it across the room and had a tapestry on the wall. Fill the room with guests and now you need the lid up or it sounds muffled. You get the idea, little changes mean a lot.
Depressing the pedal on an out of tune acoustic piano and playing does not result in tonal color control or add interest, it's called obnoxious.

If the room is anything larger than the piano in width , breadth , and height , then yes, put a piano in there you can.
