All wood pine cottage needs decorating help!

All wood pine cottage needs help!: Just bought a cottage in the Muskokas. The cottage is all pine floor to ceiling. It is nice but too much of a good thing. I am wondering what to do every where I look suggests painting white but I think that is too much of a committment. The couches were inherited and are going. I was thinking about red couches and painting some of the furniture and perhaps the kitchen cupboards or stairs. Any ideas? Please send them my way. Thanks Jack

many congratulations on your cottage.few things in my mind that want to share with you. If i were there to change the cottage i would go with some bold colors of the floor and i also like white cabinets as dawn said. i would also prefer that white will look good.another thing which you may like is to change the sofa to a more bright and shocking color such as red r blue what something you like. This will bring some charming effects to your cottage.Also consider some lightning effects like slow mode lightining that you can find easily from your nearest light house. Some covered lamps will make your cottage looks more romantic
