Is it ok to paint trim white in a contemporary house?
August 16, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hi there! We are considering purchasing an early 1980s contemporary home which has lots of great spaces that work for our family. However this is a bit of a change from the styles we usually like (Colonial, cape cod, etc) and we are trying to figure out how we would decorate and paint. My question is can you paint the woodwork white in a contemporary house or will that impact resale later? Also, the cabinets are original but owners put dark granite over them so I' wondering if I can paint the cabinets? Since we have been looking at colonials we had been thinking antique white for cabinets but I'm guessing this won't go in a contemporary? How about dark grey? Other ideas? Thanks for all of your help!! :)
