LA Good Question: Modern Interior with Wood Paneled Walls?

Pin it button big

My fiance just moved into our little bitty newlywed one bedroom basement apartment. I let him sign the lease sight unseen while I was out of state for the summer. The bedroom has wood paneling and we can't paint or take down anything, seeing as our landlords live above us.

I love clean, modern rooms, but am at a loss at how to make this such. Any suggestions?

Wow, that's a lot of wood, but we feel confident in the AT community to help find a solution. Our first idea? Run a track along the back wall and hang some fabric to cover that wall. Then we would suggest just working with the wood and don't try to cover it all up. We like the contrast between a cabin interior and really modern (try white!) furniture. Check out John and Tyke's Topanga House Tour for some inspiration.
