Glamorous Four Square

Eclectic in style, the home’s modern and ethnic furnishings are unified in color and scale. Many of the pieces were locally custom-made, including a sofa that nestles into the living room’s bay window; living-room chairs cozily upholstered in sheepskin; handcrafted wood dining-room benches and a dining-table top; and vibrant blown-glass sculptures by Portland artist Andy Paiko.

can you tell me the wood species of floor/ trim and the exact manufacturer & stain color, I have an old craftsman era chapel that i am restoring for client. Minwax color Jacobean is too brown, and ebony is too black. thinking of mixing. The floor and trim are heart of pine (orange) exact like shown. any help appreciated.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mitchell Parker added this to 8 Reasons to Paint Your Interior Trim Black
1. Energize a space. Designer Jessica Helgerson says the high contrast between white walls and black or dark trim creates an eye-opening environment that can raise blood pressure. She used an ebony stain in this Portland, Oregon, foursquare home to do just that. “It’s a nice tool for creating a fresh, ‘pop’-y, bold environment,” she says. “If you want something more soothing or mellow, go with softer tones on the walls, ceiling and trim.”With that in mind, Helgerson says it would make sense to paint trim black in, say, a dining room where you plan to have lively dinner parties, but maybe not in a bathroom where you’re looking for a spa-like feel.

8 Reasons to Paint Your Interior Trim Black. Hide imperfections, energize a space, highlight a view and more with a little bit of darkness that goes a long way By now many of you know about the benefits of painting your ceilings and interior doors black. But if those approaches give you a bit of anxiety, consider using black or a dark stain on just your trimwork. To this day black remains as a timeless neutral, but should be used in moderation. It’s not for every room or every style of home, but this trick has the potential to energize your space, highlight a view or hide a few visual imperfections. Check out these examples to determine if painting your baseboards, casings and moldings black is right for you. 1. Energize a space : the high contrast between white walls and black or dark trim creates an eye-opening environment that can raise blood pressure. It’s a nice tool for creating a fresh, bold environment. If you want something more soothing or mellow, go with softer tones on the walls, ceiling and trim.
