    most folk feel that a room appears bigger if the color is lighter...the lighter the better. I just got back from a stay at a beach cottage that was built in 1903. The main living room was board and batten paneling that was fairly dark, it was on the walls and the ceiling. The bedroom I stayed in by comparison was about 1/4 the size but painted felt way more open

    I would definitely paint all the walls the same color since "accent" walls tend to make a room feel smaller. What color is the tile?
