painting all of it since the floors are currently oak

We just built a new house and stained the trim around the doors and windows and painted the baseboards a shade darker than the walls. Kilim beige for the walls and next shade darker for baseboard and doors. We like it, no white trim ever again!

Fully agree with charleee...the contrast will be amazing! But if you really hate the oak stain look...paint it all and be done with it! It's your house...you need to feel happy when you look at it...doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about it. Everyone has their own personal style and taste...Do what makes you SMILE! By the way...you don't have to paint it WHITE either...paint if dark brown or black if that suits you, your wall color, and furnishings. Be Brave...go for what feels right to you. Best of luck!
