Trim and Molding

Trim and molding are probably as important today as ever. Paint colors have really become soft neutral grays and off whites. It is the trim and molding that gives a space visual interest these days. Big baseboard molding, crown molding and chair rails are a must. Built ins and window seats with storage are very popular. Ceiling moldings of all types are really important when you have high ceiling. We are even seeing headboard walls in master bedrooms being treated with decorative molding. Let think outside the box and create some new profiles using molding.

Industial Chic

Have you noticed lately that all the retail businesses around are doing facelifts to a more sophisticated industrial chic look? I was in a McDonalds this week getting a cup of coffee and thought I walked into a Starbucks!!! The palates of gray, black and white mixed with weathered wood was everywhere. Also there are touches of galvanized metal and pendants everywhere. I really like the simplicity and freshness of this new style. Industrial chic is very adaptable in to you own home.
