No, it's staying the same. Have the same paneling in 2 other parts of the house. In one area we filled all the paneling ribs so it looks like a flat wall, in the other we just painted with the ribs still there. Both were a pain in the ass.
Anything small or poorly lit, I'd go with the lightest shade of whatever color you decide, if not all white. Our house is very poorly lit, and I'm after Nathan to help me brighten it up. First order of business is going to be the bathroom. I want to paint it all white, get a white shower curtain, and accent with a red bathmat and towels. My first thought was white and orange, but I was reminded those are UT colors. BOO.

Love the gray yellow theme for the bathroom. Make the yellow more light dijon than daffodil.
With the dark paneling and dark furniture room? I would go with a taupe/coffee color for the walls. Like think coffee with lots of milk in it. More gray undertones than yellow though.
Then for the other room with the natural wood? do a really cool deep blue color with gray undertone. This is what I am thinking. I have it in the living room. This is the painting in progress. It really works with all colors - pops of red, orange, yellow, and white.
