At home, we painted the trim a different color from the walls. But since then, we've really fallen for the crisp, more modern look of trim and walls in all one color. We can't help but think that unifying the colors will visually calm our small apartment...

The finish might change (not necessarily, though) from flat on the walls to eggshell on the trim, but keeping the color the same makes for a more cohesive, calm, and less chopped-up appearance. We're looking forward to our next paint job at home so we can try out matching our walls and trim. Have you tried this in your home?
