the beauty of paneled walls

I've been painting trim and walls and doors in my living room all weekend, and while it's exhausting, some crisp white semi-gloss paint has really made such a world of difference in this room. It now really feels classic and timeless and stylish. Still, I wish my woodwork were in better condition (but it's original and this house is old!). I'm envious of these gorgeous walls with perfect moldings that have caught my eye lately.

Side note: What do you think of the paneled walls painted in colors, not just standard white? I like it.

I like them all Casey, but I think the Thibaut image is wonderful. And that last image, yum. Is that your house? No matter the color, molding adds a ton of character to a room.

I like the blue paneled walls more than I thought I would. White always looks so crisp though. I'm trying to talk my mom into painting the paneling in her family room white for a cottage like feel, but she wants to get rid of it all together. Wish I could convince her, the house is located on a large pond so white paneling would be ideal.

OMG Rene I wish that was my house! Karen, good luck convincing your mom to keep her paneling. I love it in a waterfront setting! Carrie, thank you so much!

I'm partial to white paneled walls, but the last picture (is that Amy Meier's work?) is stunning!! I mean I LOVE it and would love to do that in a cozy den or office!! I'm glad to hear the hard work paid off this weekend!!!
