white-vs-color-001In the past, if you chose to have painted trim versus stained, the assumption would most likely have been that the trim would be white

But if you scroll through places like Pinterest or design blogs, or watch decorating and home improvement shows (Fixer Upper anyone?), you may have noticed that it seems like the trend might be changing just a little.
While you will still find white (or stained) trim in the majority of homes, it does seem like a segment of designers and homeowners seem to be gravitating more toward colors like gray and black, or grayed down versions of other colors for a more unique look.
