Big changes or no?

last month

Redoing my living room this year. Will be replacing carpet (likely with LVP, but not 100 % sure) and am thinking about painting the knotty pine a creamy white and walls SW Sea Salt or similar. I would either leave the beams as is or maybe wrap them with a lighter non-orangey wood. And obviously new furniture.
I am so torn on updating the knotty pine, when we first moved in 20 years ago my painter suggested that very idea and my husband was emphatically against it. Sadly he passed a few years ago so now all decisions are on me…which can be a good or bad thing! What say you? Leave as is or paint?
