Trim color with white walls
August 19, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are just completing the renovation on our 1959 ranch. We opened up the floor plan, replaced all windows and doors with new bronze clad casements, really modernized the home. Our style is clean, modern. We are having baseboard made that is a simple 1x6 with a horizontal groove cut in about a 1/3 of the way down and a slight round over on the top. Door casing is a 1x4 with a square back band trim on the edge. Our walls are BM ivory white. Can I match the trim to the wall paint but do a semi gloss to highlight it a bit? Will it not show up if I do the same color? The trim is beautiful, but understated. I want it to show, but not shout. Thanks for the input..
