Three season porch - Exterior or Interior Paint?

We have a 3 season porch that is uninsulated. We live in a New England climate so we experience all four seasons weather-wise. I am not sure if we should use exterior or interior paint on the walls, trim, and ceiling (beadboard wood ceiling with beams). Because it's enclosed, it obviously won't be exposed to rain or sun but will be to temperature swings. Any insight or help would be appreciated!

I would vote for exterior, but one of our pro painters should be along with the answer.

As long as it doesn't get wet or see a lot of UV rays interior paint should be ok BUT I have never painted as far north as you are.

I'd use interior as long as the weather is not getting inside.

Around here they build a room called a sun room which is basically just a non-heated room with a door you can close off to the rest of the house and it gets furnished and painted just like any other room in the house.

The porch is similar to what you described, it has a door closing it off to the main house. It has windows and doors, sheetrocked walls i.e. not a screened porch. Itís just that it is not heated. I just donít want to do the job twice! I may do the trim will with interior paint and the walls and ceiling with exterior
