Trim To Match

i think most of us would admit to having all of the same color trim throughout our houses – and more likely than not, it’s white. clean, fresh, and simple. i love it. but sometimes i wish i had a little more courage to take a room, just one would be fine, and paint the trim out a different color. not just on wainscoting but windows, door frames, crown moulding, everything!

all lacquered up:

i've posted this room before but i have to again. it's so soothing.

i am in love with this blue and all of that gorgeous millwork.

i think this is a thibaut wallpaper but regardless it's adorable and the green sets it off perfectly!


try starting small in an office or bathroom.

I hear you...I need to get more bold with trim (as painters are painting my son's nursery wainscoting white---BTW, it has been in process for over a month...was it you with a painter horror story?)

And the paper is a discontinued O&L pattern :(
