Are old paintings copyright free?
As long as the painting is under copyright, you cannot use publicly without permission any copy (reproduction) you may own or find. This is true even if you are the actual owner of the original painting. You own the object, not the right to copy it. There is ownership, but no longer a copyright.

Why are white walls bad?
Since white is the lightest colour, it would seem to make sense that your interior would feel the brightest with white walls. But this is a very common mistake. Because again, white cannot ADD light, it can only reflect what is there. And in a low light room there are too many shadows.
