You can ask local fabric or upholstery stores for any remnants or unused samples. Most are very large & can easily be made into custom fabric large pillows.

I agree with the large trim. My previous home had the taller baseboard trim as well as the larger wood trim around the doors, etc., in all the rooms and it was so elegant! It does make a difference!

I love the idea of black painted doors! If you're worried about it being too dramatic, (and I can see why it may seem a bit scary)....start small...perhaps with the front door only. I've seen this done and if you have sidelights, paint those as well for high impact!
