I originally gathered these images while looking for decorating inspiration for our first home. It was filled with chunky original wood trim that I desperately wanted to paint white, but knew it just would be “wrong”.
Take a look at how we decorated our first house here.
I want you to know that I ended up embracing and loving the dark wood trim. I am SO GLAD we didn’t paint it. Hopefully you can find some inspiration in these photos to help you embrace your own wood trim and give it a current feel.
I love how the wood trim looked in our window seat:
And it really looked sharp in our family room too:
And come see how good it looked in our bedroom too!
I love this post! I have the same dark trim issues with my hubby. My upper level is all the original dark molding but someone had done a really bad remodel on the lower level so when we redecorated the hub said we could paint the new wood work. I am excited to see how you decorate your new home. You can see my woodwork on my blog under home tour and my most recent post of my guest room. I would love to get your opinion and any ideas you might have. I m going to pin some of your pics and Follow. Blessings! Wanda
The pictures aren’t showing. I would love to see them
So frustrated that I can’t see anything because so many popups bog down the website. 🙁 Too bad, looks like you have lots of interesting ideas but I haven’t the patience to wait for things to load.
oh no! That definitely shouldn’t be happening – can you e-mail me at christinasadventures(at)gmail(dot)com with any screenshots you had of the popups? It doesn’t show up on my end, so I’d love to help in any way I can! Sorry that happened 🙁
