After installing plywood on my walls and wanting to use wallpaper. I was trying to figure what to do with the seam's? 

 Not coming up with any good idea's, I used tape and joint compound! I also countersunk all the screws and finished them. It held up with no cracking. No cracking that I could see through the wall paper and that is all I cared about.

 These were all horizontal and vertical flat seams, no corners. HTH JIm

If you put up the drywall, and cover the seams with battens (attached to only -one- of the pieces of drywall), movement shouldn't be a huge issue. Appearance may be reminiscent of a single-wide, but ... it deals with the tape seam issue.

I like the idea of upholstered panels under the windows.  The backer panel can be very thin and the fabric over headliner batting helps kill outside noise and adds to the insulation of the walls. If you ever need to get into the walls for future wire runs they just pop off with a few screws.
