Painted trim is the fad right now along with the whites and grays look. I will admit, it does look sharp. But, it is just fad. There will never be a substitution for the natural beauty of wood.


Not THAT kind of wood.

Painted trim sounds intriguing, I have to admit I’ve never seen it. But not gray or white!

White trim with colored walls can be very nice too – that has been done since the 1910 to 1920’s. That was how the upstairs of our house was when originally built around 1915. Surprisingly colorful. Discovered that when we renovated – scraped down to base plaster.

It’s been around, but white trim, white upper cabinets and gray lower cabinets is a current trend. That has never been a design feature before in homes. In the last year, White/gray countertops have surpassed countertop colors that have been the top colors for the past 15-20 years. While the option and rare case of people doing it has always been around, the current design/decor color scheme is a fad.

Paint hasn’t always been as cheap or as easy as it is to come by now either. Stained wood will always stand the test of time.
