Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Artful Vintage Style in Omaha
The basement family room is one of the couple's favorite rooms in their home. Designwise, it initially presented some dilemmas, and the budget was tight. The walls in this room were an unattractive knotty pine that the couple couldn't afford to completely replace, so they decided to paint them navy and keep the grooves white for a pin-striped look. Vintage chairs were recovered in a Southwestern-inspired fabric for a colorful touch. "I'm originally from New Mexico, so I can't pass up a good Southwest print," Jessica says. Chairs: vintage; couch; Nebraska Furniture Mart; wall paint: Naval, Sherwin Williams
Becky Harris added this to 5 Homes That Spotlight Art
Black and white pin-striped walls are a bold backdrop for the right works. See the rest of this home
Here's one way to tackle unsightly old paneling: Paint the grooves white and the boards indigo to transform it into a graphically striped wall treatment.

I like the bold color on the paneling with white peg board on top. Or maybe the other way around. Paint appears to be semigloss. The white lines are cool. Not sure if they would work in a business setting or not.
