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?
