Top Designer Chosen Trim Colors That Aren’t White
Add character & dimension to your space by choosing a trim color that isn’t white
It’s time to ditch the white y’all!
If you saw my living room design board you probably knew this was coming…
I just can’t help myself, I have been swooning over all the amazing painted trim I have been finding all over Pinterest!
When we bought this house I decided right away that every design decision would be made because it was something we truly loved, not just what was in trend & not what a future buyer might like (because this is our forever house 😉)!
My first step to boldness was definitely painting Eli’s trim & bead-board Rosemary by Sherwin Williams.
Next came the DIY stone wall & then the brown leather couch, now I’m on a roll with no regrets!
Not that this is super daring because after all it is just paint, but it definitely goes against the crisp white trim norm & I am on board!
Here are just a few of my favorites!
Linen Colored Trim
This bedroom has been saved on my Pinterest multiple times because I love it so much! This subtle trim color is appealing without being overwhelming & is perfect if you are still unsure if you are on board with contrast trim.
Farrow & Ball- Sand
The richness of this brown trim feels warm & cozy. It would accent perfectly with linen colored furniture & natural wood flooring.
Behr- Juniper Ash
The perfect bluish
Benjamin Moore- Backwoods
Y’all know I love a green trim! This green is the perfect hue to add a calming earthy
Sherwin Williams- Rosemary
For Eli’s room renovation, we went with Rosemary trim from Sherwin Williams. It pairs perfectly with yellows & burnt oranges. We still need to make his big boy bed but this room is getting there!
If y’all saw my living room design board you know black contrast trim is what I have my heart set on! It looks so classic & really draws the eye to see clean lines in the space.
This serene blue trim is gorgeous & definitely swoon worthy!
Benjamin Moore- Stonington Gray
Ohh la la I am adding a stair renovation to our project list asap!
So many great options to choose from!
If the contrasting trim idea still makes you a bit nervous another option in to simply have them mix a darker version of the paint you have on the walls.
Yep they can do that!
