When White Trim Won’t Do
When I work on new builds or do color consultations with clients, we always choose a go-to trim color. It’s one of the easy ways to create a sense of continuity throughout the house. In 99 cases out of 100, this trim color is some shade of white or ivory.
In my own 229 year old home, most of the trim is a creamy shade of ivory, Benjamin Moore Linen White. It’s a very creamy shade, but it works well in antique house.
However, even if you have a go-to trim color in your house, not every room has to use it in order for a house to feel balanced — particularly in “satellite” areas like mudrooms, powder rooms, dining rooms, and kids’ rooms.
(And if you have a “servants’ staircase,” that counts as a satellite area too. 🙂 )
I’m sure you see where I’m going with these images.
Yep, green trim!
And, my rockin’, Poltergeist wallpaper is up!
Head back over to the ORC to check out all the rest of the participants. It’s no joke to get a room done in 6 weeks. Huge props to all, and good night!
