In a home built with traditional, symmetrically lined wall features, you can use decorative features to add style and interest to the space. Exotic colors, patterns, and even textures can go a long way toward making the space seem interesting, without disrupting the sense of unity which this architectural choice makes inherent. If your home has contemporary walls, scattered at random intervals lightly throughout the space, consider using a single color or pattern to bring unity to the area. Even if you can't help but change up the tones on the various walls, you should at least use a unifying factor, such as a single type of decorative piece, or a single color used on all of the trim and molding. This will ensure that the space doesn't get too disparate.
Lighting is an important consideration for wall art. Carefully placed spotlights can draw attention to an attractive piece of artwork. The lighting does, however, need to be subdued to avoid inadvertent glare. Be careful to balance the room by not placing all your wall decor in one half of the room. Experiment with the positioning before you commit to hanging the pieces. You can create a nice touch of diversity by using different sized frames in paintings and mirrors.
Wood is a versatile medium. It can be used to create a number of different wall decor items. For example, the wood can be carved into a mask. A mask can also be the mask of a person or an animal. Wood can also be used to create plaques or other sculpture-like items that can be hung. It can be used to create wooden boxes in which to hold small vases or other miscellaneous knick-knacks.
