In a master bedroom I wanted to create a subtle treatment on the wall behind the bed and side tables. It was important to balance the feminine and masculine elements in the room, so as to appeal to both room residents. One solution was to create the tailored look of tweed fabric, achieved by layering three graduating shades of paint in a cross hatch pattern. (Small brush, hours and hours of painting!) It was labor intensive, but was worth the effort. Next time, however, I'll consider using a grass wallpaper!
