I think the main reason people (including myself) fall in love with older homes is all of the character. The unique trim and moldings usually are what gives a house character and what better way to bring it out than to paint it? I have always liked the crispness of white trim against colored walls, but lately I’ve been digging painted trim against white walls. It not only draws attention to great trim and moldings, but it also adds pattern and color to a room in an uncommon way. In newer homes, it’s a great way to make a home feel less “builder neutral”.
My least favorite thing to paint is trim; painting it a different color would probably make it much more bearable! What do you think of this trend? Would you paint your trim a different color than white?
