There is just something about wood walls that everyone likes. Here in Austin, TX there were many houses built in the 1920-40's that had wood walls without plaster. Often they were covered with muslin cloth then wallpapered over. Eventually they got drywalled. Here's some pictures of a 1930's house my company remodeled recently were we found some beautiful old pine walls and decided to re-use them for the remodel.
This house turned out amazing and I think the character of these salvaged pine walls really connects with people who visit. If you are considering wood, I highly recommend it for your interior walls.
For more pictures of this house you can visit the website of Architect Hugh Jefferson Randolph, AIA.
