I see that the trim is painted the same color as the walls. Is this a trend now? Do you think it makes the walls look taller? It is interesting.

Hi Marian! You're right. It helps with the illusion of height to paint the crown to match the walls. I'd say it's a style choice — it's more streamlined/minimalistic and helps the millwork blend. If you want the millwork to stand out, by all means use contrast.
