Small Cabin leave it wood or go with paint and beadboard?
This 300 sq ft cabin is on a wooded lot across from a lake in Michigan. Would you leave the warm wood paneling or would you brighten the interior up even more by going for more of a cottage by the lake look and paint the walls a lighter color and add white beadboard? Because the wood paneling already has grooves in it that are pretty wide, do you think that would look weird with beadboard? If you suggested leaving the walls alone as you see them in these pictures, would you just go with soft, yet lighter colors for the furniture , bed coverings, etc.,?
