I firmly believe that you should accent only the details that are:
- suitable to the design of the house, and
- in the proper scale with the room
|Crown Molding Enhanced With Paint|
- To make trim "disappear", paint it in the wall color so it becomes texture. The ceilings will look taller and the room more unified and spacious.
- To enhance the trim, use masking tape and trim paint to redefine it, as was done in the above example from one of our projects. Notice how small the wood section of the crown is, and how much larger and more attractive it looks after Roger enlarged and painted it in a golden bronze metallic I chose to complement the blue walls, gold ceiling and the mirror frame.
