True to my word, I did some serious painting last weekend. In my bedroom I did just the first coat of the walls and trim- so nothing to share yet- but its looking to be very TEAL. I decided to paint my trim and doors the same color as the walls (BM Naples Blue) but in semi-gloss. In a deeply saturated room WHITE makes a big statement, so I want to use it wisely (think crisp punctuations in curtains and bedding.) I didn’t want the doors or windows to pop, thus why I painted out the trim. It’s going to be like a little jewelbox in there… I am very excited.
Trim is SO important in a room and often I think its overlooked. It can be used for contrast or to simplify and it certainly doesn’t just need to be white. Here are a few of my favorite looks for painted trim.
Imagine this room without the black doors and trim? Totally different right? – Sara Story
White is used as a purposeful contrast in this teal room. – Michelle Workman
Look closely: There is some kind of wall moulding in this room,
but you can’t really tell because it’s been painted out the same color as the wall.
No plain white door and trim here!
A color is pulled from the gorgeous wallpaper to give the door its own statement.- Hutton Wilkinson
Mona Ross Berman gave her clients’ dining room the total pale lilac paint treatment.
Imagine all of those mouldings contrasting in the room? It would have been a much busier space.
Pink trim is bold, even for me, but I love what it does to this space!
Windows and trim have been painted out the same turquoise shade as the walls,
allowing other pieces to stand out in the room.- Miles Redd
