consider a two-tone paint treatment the entire length of the hall, 5-1/2 to 6 feet up in one color and the final 2+ in a complimentary, darker tone. (Hopefully it might be higher). On this higher level/portion, hang your artwork or other displays to draw the eye's attention upward and create drama and interest. You could also consider some sort of long display shelf (glass?) at this level to house a collection of interest. For storage, in the wider section of the hall (above where bikes are shown) consider installing cabinetry that leaves the lower portion of the wall exposed but allows for some add'l hidden storage above, where it won't be bumped into. I hope the coming orderliness includes a better solution for your bicycles, because they are a major distraction. A wall rack would corral them, and give them more of a sense of purpose in the overall look.
