Planning on turning this into a study/spare room. What should I do? And if I keep the original wood on wall, what colour should I paint grey beams and window frames?
P.S The ceiling is panelled orangey toned knotty pine
Hmm, I personally love the existing color of the room. I don't like painting over nice wood paneling, which is what it looks like you have here. I think you just need a new light fixture, new window treatments and some new furniture with color accents to spruce up the space. I'd leave everything else as is. I'm a guy so I get that the colors may be a bit masculine, but personally I love the existing color scheme.
