The entire upper floor of my 1930 bungalow was redone in the '50s with heavy, orangey knotty pine paneling. I liked the treehouse effect it had on the well-lit bedroom for awhile...then I decided I didn't want to live in a treehouse any more. It's been painted light, light blue-grey and I love it. The texture of the vertical tongue in groove is actually a plus, in my opinion. The rest of the upstairs is not so sunny, so it's pretty gloomy with those dark walls. They're getting the same treatment soon.
