Knotty Pine is not an easy wood to paint. My mother tried once, and the wall has never looked quite right. It looks like painted knotty pine. Additionally, once its painted you can't go back. Pine is soft and absorbs the paint. That isn't cheap plyboard paneling and defines the character of the room. Chances are it's local pine. I think in this case, if you paint that room, you will be sorry and will devalue the house. Embrace the pine, put colorful and bright quilts in the room and get rid of the teal floor. There is probably lovely hardwood beneath the carpet.

The problem with brown tile floors is that they always look dirty. They could have at least given a nod to the age of the building with offset subway tile (the stacked doesn't look right), and white hexagonal floor tile, and still used the modern glass and fixtures.
