OK?-door/casing dark paint color different from crown& baseboard

16 years ago

We are building a 1920's style farmhouse. My cabinets are a great taupey green (BM Camaflouge). Because the cabinets run from floor to ceiling, the crown and baseboards are in this color too.

I was going to paint the walls the BM Celery Salt, but it looked too muddy next to the cabinetry, so I am thinking of repainting it a Dove White to make the cabinetry and soapstone counters pop out.

But then, the trim on my creamy white doors gets lost against the white.

I remember seeing pictures of older homes where the trim was in a dark color. So, would it make sense to make JUST the doors and the door casings in a darker green (say BM dried sage) to complement the cabinets? In this case the the crown and a baseboards would be a different/lighter color than the doors and door trim.

Would that still look good? Is it too many colors--should I just paint the door the color of the cabinets? I would love to see anyones pictures of something similar.
