I did an accent wall in a walk-in closet with this method. It looks awesome, but it was not easy. Not terribly messy, but definitely requires two people and a day's worth of work. The fabric was washed and dried before putting it up, and I found that once it was saturated with the starch, it would expand. The fabric I used had a semi-abstract pattern, so it was easier to camouflage where things didn't quite meet up correctly, but I wouldn't recommend using something with a geometric pattern.

Coming from the advertising side of color theory, notice how much of the candy bars at the check-out line have browns and red/oranges on the wrappers? Studies have shown that those colors trigger the "oh yum" button in most of us when we glance at the product quickly, making us more likely to pick it up on a whim. Color plays a strong part in the selling an idea. Now whether that same idea translates over into interior wall color, I'm not too sure... I don't think a red, beige, or orange wall is going to make me more or less hungry.
