Tell Me Tuesday…BAM or SLAM!?


BAM for Chevron!  Last week we had quite the discussion.

There were quite a few of you who felt it was overused around blogland and have grown tired of it.  However, the majority of you still love it!

This week, let’s add a little drama to design.   How do you feel about rich, black, glossy molding…are you a fan?

  8. Yes, a big bam for me on black on the architectural details, but I prefer it on windows and doors as opposed to the crown in a few of the photos above. I LOVE it on windows.

  9. I’m not sure about lots and lots of it (trim and stuff), but I love a black interior door. I plan on painting the inside of my front door black. So SLAM? BAM? Somewhere in between. How’s that for noncommittal?

  13. Definitely a BAM for me! I love it as accents to a space. I think it can be overdone thought, like most things.

  14. I don’t like it everywhere, but in some cases it’s just gorgeous! Overall, I’d say it’s a bam

  16. I’d give it a BAM :) Not sure I’d do it myself but I think in the right room it could be spectacular!

  17. i wouldn’t use it in my decor because it just isn’t my style, but I think it can look very elegant and chic.

  18. BAM BAM BAM!!! I love it … I wish I would have done it in my basement. Hmmm.. maybe it’s not too late.

  19. 100% BAM! I die over black moldings, doors and fireplaces…unfortunately most clients are not brave enough to commit!

  20. Such a fan of bold black trim. This is one idea that I’m definitely saving for my future house (currently we rent).

  21. Elizabeth says:

    BAM! Although, I’d rather use a deep charcoal/blue in a high gloss for doors & windows. I love high gloss in any color!

  22. I actually have always liked this—in the right setting!
    Especially white mill work supporting BLACK DOORS!

  23. SLAM. I’ll be the lone nay sayer on this one. I’m not a fan at all, too dark for my taste. I think it certain rooms it can look nice but overall this is a big no go for me.

    Changed my ho-hum white French doors in dining room to black and it immediately made the room smarter, more interesting. Loved it so much we painted guest room shutters black – looks great with black slat-back bed. It’s the most dramatic change for so little effort.

  25. Carol jane says:

    Oh wow! Very cool. Love the black wood trim. Unusually gorgeous!

  26. Slam–crisp white trim all the way!
