    Are the walls plastered..... I would continue the plaster up to the ceiling to make it look higher or use whitewashed board. Love the post and beam ceiling, but personally I would whitewash the boards to make it brighter inside, and leave the beams natural.

    If the white part of the wall extends out leaving a slight ledge, why no take a piece of dowel rod sized to fit into the ledge, either paint it to match the wall color or stain it to match the wood, and tack it in place? I guess the same treatment could be done if the white wall section is recessed beneath the wood, leaving the look of an overhang (which I personally don't find objectionable).
