Trim vs ceiling color
July 2, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are building our dream house and it's sort of a craftsman/traditional style. Lots of trim work (wainscotting, etc) that we chose to paint Dover white (not super white, but more of a soft creamy white -- almost looks off-white). We told the builder just to paint the ceilings the standard white and but now seeing the crown molding against the ceiling I'm not sure if that's the right choice. I'm just wondering if anyone out there has this type of contrast with their trim and ceiling. Probably the best thing to do is paint the ceilings the same as the walls, but I'm thinking that would be pretty expensive. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
