Knotty Pine walls, Keep/nix?

We just bought a house and our soon to be closet is all wood. Hardwood floor with knotted pine walls and ceilings with no windows. I want to brighten up the space before installing our closet system. We like modern style but I don't think the knotty pine goes with this style. What do you think? Should I white wash? Paint a bright color? Or get rid of completely and replace with drywall?

You are going to see so little of the wall once your clothes are in there, is it worth it? If so, I would just paint it out - and I love the idea of a bright color!

Good point about the amount of wall showing. I'd still like a bright background to be able to find my things easily. I am thinking a bright turquoise but not super saturated. Valspar frosty maybe?

Not familiar with Valspar paints but I agree, go with a turquoise - just avoid the neon tone. I think you'll love your closet when it's done. Very fun.
