Hallway Décor Ideas: Pro Tips

Design expert Yoko Chow, of Yoko Chow LLC, shares her tips on selecting nature-inspired artwork:

 "When you hang botanical artwork, it’s just like adding an indoor plant to your living space [without taking up any space or requiring upkeep.] I can picture the modern Boho style with a minimal color palette, matched with light earthy shades for a [vibrant-meets-understated] look.”

ElephantStock art director Tirzah Goodman is a big fan of adding botanical wall art to your space. In fact, she has curated an entire collection titled “summer greenery” that combines classic palm-prints with vivid summer shades.

Modern Color Schemes

Contemporary color schemes combine minimalism with splashes of saturated color. You don’t need a lot to make an impact. Use a neutral base and let your wall art be the statement piece.

White Hallway Ideas

White is an excellent shade to use liberally throughout your hallway. Deep colors can make your hallway appear dark and narrow, so it’s better to keep it looking light and bright.

Hallway Décor Ideas: Pro Tips

Décor pro Yoko Chow recommends combining Pantone’s Colors of the Year for the perfect balance between neutrals and color:

"Understandably, 2023's colors are a reflection of the on-going phenomenon - fortitude facing the pandemic. The combination of Illuminating (yellow) and Ultimate Gray may give you a very contemporary impression, but it [can be traditional as well.] While yellow is known to enhance one’s creativity and attention, having a vast area enveloped in yellow may [appear overwhelming] since it is such an attention-grabbing color. Balance is the key!"

Our resident design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz agrees with yellow as a hot shade for summer 2023:

“Yellow, with its radiant charm, is the color of pure sunshine. When the summer season rolls around, this sunny color is always at the forefront of design trends. Yellow is said to represent happiness and a love of life and learning. This color exudes individuality and the desire for creativity and new ideas. Using yellow will instantly invite warmth, happiness, and love into your home."

Hallway Wall Art Sizes

Stuck on selecting a canvas size? Read these excerpts from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide:


Your wall art should take about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space, the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. Measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get a range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.


Large wall art that measures 36 inches by 75 inches in height and width can create a polished, classic look in your hallway. This wall art size works well in long hallways as well as over your entertainment area.
Wall art of this size can have printed inspirational quotes or a collection of your favorite travel or family photographs printed on the canvas.

Hallway Décor Ideas: Pro Tips

Speaking of inspirational quotes, art director Tirzah Goodman has put together a stunning selection of trendy “definition-themed” wall art. Consider one of these contemporary beauties for your hallway.
