I actually had the opposite problem - 10 foot ceilings and lots of white white walls and a skylight. The kitchen is all along one wall and on the opposite side I painted the wall with Behr Chickadee. I also added sheer curtains and threw christmas lights behind them. There's now a cheeful warm glow in the room.

I started the project but I didn't buy enough crochet thread. I got 16" punch balloons. A spool of crochet thread I got at Michaels didn't give me enough coverage for even 1 balloon. I think I may have to go 3 spools to a balloon. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Funny - I just painted a kitchen wall in a bold yellow and then I see this post. I'm loving the wall - if you're on the fence, go for it!

I was totally inspired as well but like most of you didn't like the idea of stapling the fabric to the wall. I chose to do wrap the fabric around the back board of a frame. It's worked well so far. Take a look for more ideas....http://www.akangarooo.com/blog/2008/11/scarf-holder/
