Light color paint upstairs, natural wood downstairs in older homes and apartments. Why?

What is the history of painting the upstairs apartment/floor millwork and leaving the downstairs natural with maybe stain only? Why was this done? Is it done in most of the U.S. or only the midwest (where I live)?
If it was just fashion, is there a reason?
