Designer Tips for Pairing Your Trim and Wall Paint
Remember when stark white trim and molding seemed to be the only option? Well, those days are long gone and, personally, we’re loving it! Although white trim is still a lovely option, we’ve been playing with a few other concepts that we think you’re gonna’ love, so get ready to scroll and roll [get it? as in, roll paint onto your walls…yeah, you get it…]!
Tone on Tone
Cover your walls and trim in the same hue but vary the finish! Even though the color remains the same, the variation in texture and sheen creates a subtle impact that’s very appealing to the eye.
Expert Tip: Playing with finishes is a great way to add textural interest while keeping the same color palette. If finishes are not your thing, check out our simple guide here!
Raw Meets Refined
The beauty of natural wood shines when placed against a coat of bright white paint – leave doors, trims, and molding exposed and revel in the juxtaposition!
Expert Tip: Leaving window frames in their natural state draws eyes to your stunning outdoor view.
Dark Meets Light
Convention compels us to put color on the walls and to leave molding and trim white, but we’re ready to break free from those norms – why not coat your trim in a soft grey or navy and leave your walls crisp and white!?
Expert Tip: Consider coating your trim and molding in a satin finish if you’re looking for a more contemporary statement.
