If you don't want to paint your whole apartment black, but would like to darken things up a bit. Black moldings can be a good compromise. The subject of black moldings has come up before on AT, but it's actually surprisingly difficult to find good photos of them. So we were thrilled to stumble on this photo in the recent Living Etc. magazine. We've actually done this ourselves, a few years ago, and we were pleased with the results. Even in our tiny one-bedroom, the black moldings added depth and visual interest to the space. The home pictured here is located in central Marseilles and is a renovated printing factory.
