This post displays some successful uses of classic paneling. While these demonstrate detailed millwork applications and a complexity next to only provided by a hired trained professional; adding a simple 6" (minimum) moulding along your ceiling and wallbase perimeters, in combination with even applied 2-3" trim in rectangle formations across your wall surfaces, are a great way to add rich architectural detailing to a room which would otherwise bland.
