Home Touches & Inspiration

Since we have been on the subject of Trim and Wood working these past few months, I thought all you out there would like to read a little bit more of about the different styles of TRIM and how to better incorporate it in your home. I of course am a BIG fan of ALL trim work...but you already knew that:P 

So I would like you to meet Susi, today's guest post, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a must-shop resource for beautiful light fixtures and lamps online. Visit their website and cool blog for more information. Enjoy! 

 Wood trimmed walls add a traditional architectural element to a room. Wood trim can be used to create picture frames or in strips to imitate wainscoting and custom millwork. Rooms with wood trimmed walls have built-in style that can work with a number of different decors.

A more traditional kind of wood trim uses wood trim combined with a chair railing and baseboard molding. This design is typically painted white below the chair rail and a color or wallpapered above.

Painted all white, walls trimmed in wood can even work with contemporary furnishings. Wood trim can be painted the same color as the walls or a contrasting color, like white. 
Loving that perfect little light fixture.
