Details. It’s all in the details. And trim, my friends, is one of those awesome details that has a strong impact on a room. The options go far beyond stained or white. Take a look.

This green-grey is subtle and classy. It’s dark enough to go easy on the more laid back house keepers (ahem, white trim with those little peanut butter hands… all I’m gonna say about that) and colorful enough to be charming.

This mint trim is another example of classy and colorful. It offers the airiness of white trim with a splash of charisma. Because it is so light, they were able to seamlessly apply this color as trim in one room and wall color in the next. What a great way to differentiate between spaces in an open concept home.

A great option for walls with lots of design features is to paint it all! The texture of of this wall offered by the fireplace, wainscotting, and other accents is more than enough interest. The color actually serves to downplay the features in a quirky, offbeat way (which you know I love).

Speaking of visual interest, check out this blue trim and wainscotting against the neutral whites of this bathroom. The effect is surprisingly calm and lovely.

Yellow trim. I’m kind of all over this. It’s so playful and bright, making it perfect for this little girl’s room. Naturally, the white walls keep things balanced. Note: if you like this offbeat style, click through to see the rest of this home. Very fun!

If yellow was just too relaxed for you, you might try something even more adventurous, like this bubble gum pink. I’m not sure what shocks me more: that someone did this or that it looks amazing.
There is a lot of black trim out there that looks really classy, but I’m bewitched by this charcoal trim. Charcoal against cream walls: delightful. It achieves a rustic vibe without sacrificing any sophistication.
What do you think? Would you do it? What color would you use?
