What Houzz contributors are saying:
Even without committing to a full accent wall, fabric can be mounted within picture moldings for a chic paneled look that’s about as effortless to construct as it is attractive, creating a singular visual statement in an otherwise white box. Save money on fabric by splitting a width in half to create your panels, or use whatever you have on hand, bordering your remnant pieces with simple wall trim that you miter and join yourself.
Bring a hint of spring to your walls. A great way to try out a fancy wallpaper is to frame a beautiful length of it. Try using molding from the hardware store (rather than an actual frame) to get exactly the size you need at a much more reasonable price.
Another idea for glamming up your pinboard is wallpaper. Instead of buying rolls and rolls of the expensive stuff you like for the walls, which may be overwhelming once applied, just one roll will infuse the space with the pattern and colors you like. Your pin wall doesn't have to be in front of your desk. The blank wall behind your desk can be a good spot to house your favorite images.
I know art students shudder when told their masterpieces look like wallpaper. But you could do a lot worse. Large framed panels create a clean, symmetrical backdrop. And if you get tired of it, you can always switch patterns.
