Colours are also important. Different colours have different meanings (red=danger, blue=calming, purple=royalty, or death) and highly saturated colours immediately draw the attention. In your image I'm again pulled toward all the wrong things, the super saturated bar stools, the tool boxes, the yellow container, and nothing interesting happens there.
Texture tells us a lot as well. not only can it be used to contrast things (the ancient Aztec pot in the sterile minimalist home, the sleek, silvery lasergun in the rusted bin) but it also evokes emotions. Shiny smooth surfaces are artificial, sterile, inhuman. Rough surfaces are more alive, organic, random. In your image almost everything is very rough and rusted. Even the canopy looks like rubber. Only the barstool padding, toolboxes and lamps look brand new. Which draws attention to the wrong things.
