I think that is a matter of taste. It would be like asking someone if they like blue walls or white walls.
Personally, I probably wouldn't paint it. I love knotty pine!
But since your desire is to paint, why not just paint the knotty pine wall first and see how it looks. If you do not like it, do the mantle too.
