Just wondering what sort of paintings look good on walls? Please suggest.
Art is definitely a personal purchase, and there's no right or wrong piece for a wall. We always recommend purchasing something you love.
If you're not sure where to start, have a look at artists who've been bestsellers this year with this curation: https://bluethumb.com.au/curations/bestsellers-of-2018.
If you like a piece, but it's sold or the dimensions are a bit off, many of our artists are happy to create a custom piece for you. Commissions are the perfect way for something truely unique and personal to you.

The problem with these halls is you walk past without really stopping to look at the art, yet it is good hanging space. It doesn't have to be paintings, could be a gallery of family photos, or 3-d pieces (lots of ideas in houzz tours). I have hung artwork opposite the doorway from a room to ensure it's seen in the past.
Things you love, but if you're not rich, get a range of prints, and frame them in similar/matching frames Or just those clip ones. Then look at them all and choose a common colour then paint the corridor/hall that colour. We have a small hall and dining room in light terracotta, which ties in a variety of paintings, from a huge brass rubbing, through several landscapes, an etching and an Aboriginal place painting.
This is not a brilliant photo and it's impossible to get it all in, but it gives a flavour.
I would if I could. Tried to copy and paste a photo but failed. Any suggestions of how to do it welcome. I use an actual camera and the photo app on my MacAir. I can paste to FB easily but this doesn't seem to work at all!
Thanks. I tried that - but it won't pick up any of the photos in the app. Only the ones on the desktop. I'll try moving it there and see what happens!

Don't know what I did but there it is!!!
I could add that you can get a range of black and white pictures/prints/maps/whatever - then use a mat frame in a colour you love and a tone or variation on that for walls.
Shweta, bear in mind that in a narrow hallway people will not be able to stand back and take in a large painting. A series of smaller ones that can be viewed at close range, maybe even telling an interesting story as you go along the hallway would work well. They should be mounted so the centres of the paintings are all at average standing eye level, say 1.6m. Another good device is to cover the opposite wall with mirror panels. This will make the hallway feel much more spacious, as well as giving the option of a longer viewing distance (1½ times the hallway width) by looking at the reflections of the artwork instead of the actual pieces.
How are you going with your project, Shweta?
We have a similar problem; a long entrance and a big blank wall.
- One or two prints would get lost.
- A large one would be disproportionate, and
there’d still be lots of empty space.
- A gallery could get expensive.
- We don’t want family photos.
To decorate the whole area, I‘m going to give faux wainscoting a go. I can no longer find the inspirational photo I’m basing it on, but these may give you an idea.
I‘ll include a narrow hall table, a plant or two, and the print and mirrors I’ve had custom framed, like this:
Or if you don’t want the faux wainscoting (frames), something like this may break up the emptiness.
Good luck with your project. :-)
I love the simplicity and majesty of this horse photo in one of my projects with a potentially "boring" hallway. It's way oversized for the wall, but it's dramatic and it works
