Unless you live in a gorgeous Haussmannien apartment building in Paris, your trim probably isn't something you pay a whole lot of attention to. In most cases, people just paint their trim white and leave it at that. But that doesn't mean your door casings and baseboards and crown molding need to be mild-mannered. If you're craving something a little different, why not paint your trim in a new, bold color?

I'm in love with the beautiful teal trim in this seaside Swedish home from Hus & Hem. This deep green pairs equally well with light walls or with this dark, rich Josef Frank wallpaper.

Justina Blakeney, the blogger behind hip bohemian blog The Jungalow, painted the trim in her kitchen a bright green.

Black trim is an especially striking look, especially when paired with not-white walls, as seen on Desire to Inspire.

Painting just the crown mold green adds a a bit of fun to this entry from Homelife.

In this space from Dulux, the baseboard gets a little color — and two stripes above that stretch into the next room.
