Good Questions: How to Add Texture to a Wall?

I recently moved around some of my furniture in my apartment, and a wall that used to be filled with bookcases, is now too white. I need help with options for adding texture. I don't really want to add a bright color. I am thinking of painting the wall a light gray to compliment the blue and white, but am also considering adding texture to the wall, I just can't figure out how. It seems like adding a gray might be too stark. Any hints would be appreciated! Regards, Jose

Jose, how about something like Inhabit Wall Flat panels? You can even paint these that subtle gray you're considering, and they're available in a variety of designs.

There are also a variety of textured, paintable and removable wallpaper options. A silver textured metallic wallpaper is another thought. Anyone else out there have some ideas for Jose's wall texture dilemma?
