We're considering adding clerestory windows along the top of that wall to bring in more light (we don't want anything too big as there's just a view of the fence on that side of the house).
But I want to give it some punch, some wow. I considered wallpaper. Some really beautiful papers are available these days:

I had considered stencils, but I wasn't really finding what I wanted—something graphic and modern, but not too modern, since the space has traditional elements. And it can't be too intricate because I just don't have much patience for tedious chores.
This is stunning, but I don't see myself doing it (and I don't want to drag Erik into this if I don't have to):

Of course, once I choose the stencils, I still have to decide whether I want to paint them randomly or in a pattern, what color (yellow on yellow? gold on yellow?), and whether to get just one size or mix up large and small. This could take awhile...
