This is what our family room walls have looked like since we moved here 10 years ago. Don't get me started on the hunter green window shades.
The boys have really gone to town removing the old wallpaper. It's almost all gone now, but that means Jim and I have to choose and agree on a paint color. We thought about painting the wood paneling, but I actually kind of like it, and don't want to bother painting it right now. Makes finding a good wall color a challenge though. After painting comes deciding on window treatments. Roman shades would be my choice.
