Decorating with Wood Trim

Dark trim has been on my mind lately…..In Milwaukee all the downtown houses are OLD. I mean really old. My problem with old houses is accepting the dark wood trim which is all over Milwaukee. I know that if we ever bought one of these old houses I probably couldn’t bring myself to paint the 100+ year old wood trim, but it is really hard to find inspiration to keep it dark. With so many people these days only decorating with white trim. Here are a couple ideas I found….do you know of any other resources to look at?1

I think the key is to keep everything else around it really bright and cheery. Otherwise the whole place ends up looking really dark.
