Call Out Your Woodwork
Treat your woodwork as an extra opportunity for color and interest. There is no rule that states moldings and cabinets have to be white or even a pale color. You can create a great deal of interest if you paint your trim in a deep color that contrasts sharply with your walls. In this dining room, the orange cabinets and trim help the room feel warm and rich—white woodwork would’ve felt sterile and looked typical.
