Design Ideas for Dressing Up Hallway?

Good Questions

Q: I'm hoping that the Apartment Therapy community can help me with my hallway. I live in a timber-loft condo, and it opens up to a long, narrow hallway that measures 11 feet long, 3.5 feet wide. It does not get too much natural light. On the left, and in your face when you walk in is the utility closet that houses the washer/dryer, hot water heater, and furnace. The small pantry closet is just after that. The wall to the right is a blank canvas - it only has two lights (note: there are no overhead lights) and the electric box.

I previously had four 11x14 frames hung between the light fixtures, but it seemed a bit bland. I took them down when I freshened up the paint and decided that it's time for a change. I've also been struggling to find a runner for the floor that is long and wide enough not to look lost in the space. Any ideas or inspiration are greatly appreciated.
