Hi Dianne, gallery walls of photos are really popular right now. I would head to your local thrift store and look for mirrors too to break up the wall. Old shutters and doors as well as old windows can make interesting wall art without much cost too.
A large piece of art is a classic. A Large mirror could be nice. Or a gallery wall.
In addition, a large clock always looks nice.

I have a farmhouse so I went with the large wooden cathedral style frames that look similar to a window. I added a cotton wreath on each one, I did a set of three.
You can also do a gallery, large clock, large wreath, shelves with decor, or go understated with lighting.
There are a million ways to do this and it's going to depend on your taste and what you're looking to accomplish. Thrift stores, Habitat ReStores, HomeGoods -- they all have great inexpensive things. Use the search bar at the top left to seek out ideas on Hometalk, you'll find a zillion.
Amazon has giant wall murals in some very beautiful styles for under $100.00. You name the style, they have it. They are removable. Animal, sunsets, airplanes, jungle, designs, you think it they probably have it.
