I can understand that jesski! The visual of the world and the connection in your mind that it's a big and beautiful place would make for this room seeming a larger space. It's the scenic panorama you have before your eyes.

Words of caution from a bookbinder.
Newsprint is the cheapest paper made, it is extremely acid.
Use it as long as you don't want the wall to look good for a long time!
First the newspaper will start to go brown, then grow nasty rust like spots (foxing), get brittle and crack.

In one home that I had years ago, I cut up cook books and totally covered the small kitchen walls. Finishing with a protective varnish, some slatted wooden blinds and bunches of artificial grapes, the effect was of a wonderful Italian cafe.
