Paint your trim the same as your walls!
There is something modern and soothing about trim painted the exact same color as the walls. It creates a seamless look and works well if you plan to leave your walls bare or cover them with a thousand pieces of art.
Paint your trim darker than the walls
It’s crisp and modern but somehow more pleasant than the other way around. And it works in any style room with any style trim!
Paint your trim…BLACK!
That’s right! Paint your trim black 🖤 As classic as bright white, but more elegant and serious. It helps to have slightly more ornate trim when you use black. It’s almost as if it is meant to bring out the origin and history of a house
Paint your trim a natural wood color
Wood trim can look great in a modern space like this one, where it adds some earthiness and architectural interest to a plain room with light walls!
Stay classic….paint your trim bright white!
Bright white trim is the default, but it should be as intentional a choice as anything else. It is crisp and fresh-looking, and it often adds a sense of geometry. White on white is airy and fresh and irreproachable!
