Decorating: Color schemes, design for dark wood trim?
June 3, 2011 8:21 AM Subscribe
Decorating: We bought an old 1920's American Four-square style home. It is beautiful, well-built, in great condition. The problem is that myself and my girlfriend cannot seem to decide on color schemes that fit with dark wood trim, and I'm talking really dark, original woodwork. Any ideas?

The wood casing around the windows, the "crown molding", more like trim, and the staircase are all dark wood trim, along with some giant pillars of woodwork as you enter the home. It is everywhere, making for a dark room regardless of the white paint. I'm looking for links or examples of some great ways to lighten up the room without painting the original woodwork.
