Who said trim had to be white, or contrast with it’s surroundings?
Contrasting trim can break up a space, distracting your eye from the architectural details of the room.
Why not create a seamless look by painting the trim, walls and even the ceiling the same color? It will create a cohesive, restful place where your eye can move freely without distraction.
Painting trim is also a great way to camouflage small, non-descript trim.
My parent’s renovated a small apartment in Charleston a little over a year ago. The apartment was a mess when my dad started.
The trim throughout the apartment was nothing special, definitely not a feature to “show off.” Instead of highlighting it by painting it a glossy white (which is my dad’s rule to thumb), I talked him into blending it in by painting it the same color as the walls. It makes the apartment feel cohesive and cozy. My parent’s and I love the end result!
What color do you paint your trim?
