Stained wood trim mixed with some white wood trim: what should we do?

5 years ago

We are purchasing this home which has a mix of stained wood baseboards, door trim, doors and window trim. The problem is that there is white crown molding in some of the rooms (a few rooms have no crown molding at all), white plantation shutters, and the windows are white vinyl windows... with stained trim. I don't mind the stained trim look, and think it could actually work with the design/furniture we will have in this home: arts & crafts/mission style. Current plans include lots of wood furniture, leather sofas/chairs, pale mushroom & ivory color scheme with pops of navy blue & antiqued brass. We have a good amount of antique wood furniture and will be mixing in some modern touches with lighting and accent furniture. What would you do with the trim? Would you paint all the trim white? Paint just the window & door trim white but leave doors and baseboards stained? So perplexed! All ideas and suggestions welcome!
