Can I paint beadboard same color as wall in a 4 season room?

12 years ago

We are in the planning stage of constructing a 4 season room off of our kitchen. We live in a coastal New England town and want the sunroom to reflect a New England coastal decor. The sunroom will be 16 feet long by 12 feet wide with windows and french doors. The floor will be wood with a light color stain. The ceiling will be cathedral with 9 feet at the highest point and down to 7 feet 4 inches at the walls. We would like to give the ceiling some visual interest so we are going to use tongue and groove or wood which we will paint white. The doors and windows trim and baseboards will be white. We would like to have beadboard (36") on the walls but are concerned it may compete with the wood on the ceiling. We were thinking of painting the beadboard the same faint blue-green color as the walls so it would not stand out so much nor compete with the ceiling. I am wondering if this sounds like a good idea or should we forgo the beadboard or paint it white too?? Thanks for the advice.
