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.



What are your thoughts? Do you prefer white trim?
