thank you for your time .

Hey Diana

Mountains of Vermont...thats a beautiful place. See with light color of pine the best color to go would be brown or vertical stripes of light brown and light cream. You can also try chocolate color on the walls.

Considering that I have not seen the picture of your room I am not very confident to say this but I have known cases where Dark blue has also contrasted very well with pine board. But you would be the best judge for that cause I need to see the pic of your house for that.

However I am very sure this would look really good.

Take Care.
