Fabric Wallpaper

One easy option is to apply fabric to walls for a textured look. You can use fabric as wallpaper with some liquid starch and a paint roller. Apply starch to walls with a paint roller, and place fabric on the walls. It may be easiest to pin fabric at the top after applying starch to the wall, and follow with a ruler or yardstick to smooth the fabric down.

Fabric Headboard

You can easily turn a blah headboard into a creation of rich, colourful fabric. Simply cover your headboard in the fabric of your choice. Secure the fabric by using a staple gun and stapling the fabric at the back of the headboard so the staples won't be seen.

Fabric Furniture

You can also use the starch method to cover furniture, like a desk or bookshelf. Measure furniture dimensions, and cut the fabric accordingly. Use a paint brush to apply starch to the furniture. Take your pieces of fabric and apply them to your furniture, again smoothing down the fabric with a ruler to avoid bubbles.

Throw Pillows

If you find a funky fabric you enjoy, make some throw pillows for the bed. Cut out the shape and size you want for your throw pillow, remembering to make it slightly bigger than what you desire for the finished product to accommodate for seams. Sew your fabric together on all but one side, with the design of the fabrics facing each other. Reverse you pillow cover, throw in stuffing, and sew up the final side.

Tablecloths

Use pashminas and tapestries as tablecloth covers. Use them to cover the tops of bookshelves, a desk or a vanity. They'll add a little pop to your teen's room. You can also use tapestries as festive wall hangings, using a few thumbtacks to hang them up. Find tapestries and pashminas at your local thrift or vintage store.

Framed Fabric

For a modern art look, instead of framing photos and hanging them in your teen's room, you can opt to frame and hang fabrics. Head to your local crafts store to find simple fabrics with a lot of texture, like crushed velvet or fabrics with intricate designs. They'll look colourful and special displayed in a frame of a complementary colour.
