Monday Musings: Trim it in black

What's up with you little love muffins? Did you have a nice weekend? Mine was full of design, design and more design.Which means more client updates on the horizon for y'all. Do you love? So today I am talking about a subject that has recently reared its extremely attractive (I know the saying is generally "ugly" but there is nothing ugly about this) head. Black trim. 

So I know that y'all know that my house is essentially finished. I mean the only thing left really is the kitchen, but at this very moment it is "done." Which means, I am ready to go ahead and start redecorating everything. I know, I know. Designer ADD. I am now moving on to trims. In Kansas City, we have an area called Brookside, where the homes are 9 times out of 10 tudor style. That is all fine and well, but from the inside these babies are decked out with the most obscene amount of pecan wood. And when I say pecan, I am talking moldings, floors and trim completely adorned in that disgusting 80's orangina pecan wood. Many times clients have tried to tell me that it is "of the period" as I continue to shake my head.  Do me a solid people, paint your walls white and the trim black. You may be a non-believer now, but trust me when I say, you will thank me later. And in advance, you're welcome. 

While my home does not have orangina pecan wood vomit all over it, it does have white moldings, which are also lovely. But talk about framing a room, people. The stark differential between the black trim and the white walls, is oh so chic and oh so attractive. I told you. Black trim is rearing its extremely attractive head. Check it. 


  1. Love how the black adds such a wonderful accent and seems to frame each space. The banquette is stunning!!

  2. I love black trim, it makes everything look more modern!

  3. OK...just outline my whole life in black trim....hard love.

  4. We have the same orangish trim all over our house. I can't wait not to rent and to paint all the trim in my next house! I love the black trim in all of these spaces. I could die for that banquette and those brass pendants. Black gloss for the win. I just did a post on how to get the look for Karlie Kloss's apartment.

    Love her place and could die for those legs!

  5. totally love that look. I have just started painting french doors glossy black and it is so chic! xo Kristin

  6. Really gorgeous, especially that first image. People are always so afraid to paint trim but I say, if it's not working (and really, is orangina pecan wood everywhere ever working?), then a can of paint can do wonders. If it's black, even better!

  7. LOVE the black. It's adds such sophistication, doesn't it??

  8. Oh yes. Love black trim, especially in a high gloss lacquer. Great shots.

  9. Excellent goods from you, gentlemale. I’ve perceive your stuff past to and you’re simply extremely wonderful.
