Because wallpaper tends to be fairly expensive, I like to use in sparingly yet in a dramatic way. Placing it on one wall is an easy way to achieve that. Placing it on the ceiling, even another (my Aunt Rita did this years ago and when I heard I wasn't so sure, then saw it..truly spectacular..wallpaper on the walls and all the way up the ceiling, with dramatic beams that broke the pattern slightly, it was an incredibly beautiful design). Wallpapering a half bath or even a walk-in closet is also dramatic, unexpected and beautiful. If you still twitch at the thought of wallpapering, I suggest two things: Well, three. 1.) a therapist, then..
2.) Try purchasing large, frameless frames and placing the wallpaper in each frame, matching up the pattern properly. Place at least six in a wall behind a sofa or bed and enjoy the drama added to the room.
3.) Buy large canvases (for painting) at an arts and crafts store and use wallpaper glue to attach the wallpaper. I've done this same application (with a large canvas) to attach fabric for a headboard. Easy, inexpensive, gorgeous and NO MESS!
Whatever it is you do, do something to make your space your own..then send me a picture!
