Colonial Blue

How should I refinish my porch walls?

I have a nice closed in front porch that has stucco all over on the inside walls. I want to remove it because it is ugly and dirty and too sharp for my kids to play in there. My house is a 96-year old craftsman style so I am not sure what to replace it with so it doesn't look weird with the house.

The outside of the house has white stucco on the main floor and colonial blue wood shingles on the second story. The floor in the porch looks like hardwood painted with a durable gray floor paint, and the ceiling also strangely looks like hardwood flooring stained deep brown. I am really not good at design/decorating so I am not sure what to do.

And, do I just scrape the stucco off with a spackling tool? I don't even know what might be under the stucco, if it is paintable or will I have to apply some kind of surface.

Personally I would paint the ceiling white, the floor blue or whatever colour you like, fix bead board to the walls over the stucco (I know many will say not too), trim it up so it looks nice and paint the bead board white (with washable paint). Then you have a bright neutral room for the children to play in no matter what the weather, and easy to decorate as it will match almost anything.
