A decorator friend brought my attention to this home above that has just been listed for sale. We both agreed the heavy curtains should come down, the carpet needs redone and the lighting needs updated before potential buyers will call for an appointment.
But what about the dark wood trim and partial walls?:
I would suggest to leave the trim untouched. I would not paint it white in this situation. I think the dark wood has character and history. I would change the paint color to one that will work well with the wood. As I wrote about here, I love medium to dark tones with stained trim. Grays, blues, griege and greens would all look beautiful.
Do you agree or disagree about leaving the stained trim as is?
