Kids Rooms: Fabric and Padded Walls

 A fabric-covered wall gives a dramatic effect as a perfect backdrop for a focus wall in a nursery, kids room or playroom. A padded wall feels cozy in a bedroom, adds texture and interest, keeps the room warmer, and muffles sound. Wouldn't this wall look beautiful behind a crib? Similar fabric found here.

 The focus wall is covered in a damask wallpaper (this could also work with fabric). An easy way to attach fabric to walls is by using starch. Instructions found here.

 This elegant room might be a little over the top with padded walls. But I do like the effect a padded wall can give. I personally prefer one accent wall that has been upholstered.

Soft padding on one wall makes for an elegant statement. Another set of instructions on how to upholster a wall found here

Floor-to-ceiling headboard makes a statement for a room and gives it an "upholstered wall" look.
