How should we decorate these very tall walls?

The husband and I just bought a big house in semi-suburbs. It's pretty bland right now (beige walls + beige tile floors = snooze) and while we've got plenty of ideas for making it the colorful, funky home that we want, I'm at a loss for what to do with the immense two story walls in the living room.

We'll definitely paint them, but then what? I feel like they are calling out for something special. Anyone have any awesome decorating ideas for very tall walls?

Check out this sweet vintage black-and-white cartoon nursery

Even though we painted vintage cartoon murals on the walls we didn't want our daughter's nursery to be "themey." Think "scene" over "theme" — our daughter's room is like a booklover's/modern DIYer's explosion of fuchsia, turquoise, and orange in a black-and-white cartoon scene (with some retro toys thrown in there for good measure).
