Adding nuts, dried fruit, cheese, etc. to Tartine

I have been making Tartine style bread for a while now with fairly good results. I have added seeds and would like to start experimenting with various additions and combinations. Does anyone have any rule of thumb for calculating amounts? I realize some of that is dependent on preference, but I am looking for starting points and how it will affect hydration or anything else.

Here ya go. Most of the time, it looks pretty close to this. Sometimes I even remember to slash.
