The Power Of White Paint

I visited the Crystal Room in the Ashland Springs Hotel this winter. The room is small but lovely, with a tall ceiling and modern crystal chandelier. I'd describe the decor as Moroccan Colonial. I loved the brass accents amongst the neutral sea colors. 

What stood out to me most was their wall treatment. It looked like they found matching room dividers, like the 70s style ones you see in an Import store, painted them solid white, then hung them edge to edge along the walls. It turned a dated piece of furniture into an exotic and modern wall detail. 

I'd like to recreate this look someday. I also thought hippie beads, like the kind you hang in a doorway, could have a similar transformation, with just a little imagination and a lot of white paint.
