Dark Green Walls and White Trim

Posted on | February 22, 2010 | 12 Comments

One of my lovely readers sent me this house last week to add to my green room inspiration file. The dark green walls against the crisp white molding is gorgeous. I still don’t know what I am going to paint my room. I think I need to paint some sample colors on the molding and walls and live it for a few weeks. I don’t think I will be satisfied until I’ve tried out both color combos.

Below more images from a lovely home styled by Katrine Martensen-Larsen. I love the checks and stripes in the bedrooms and mudroom. See more gorgeous interior images at kmldesign.dk.

Thanks Bernadette for the tip!

    So lovely! I think I prefer the sagier green paired with the creamier white for your room. But these rooms are stunning, simply lovely.

    I think I prefer a sage green wall but this room is inspiring!

    Green on green! Green on green! I love that last color combo in Soho too much to let it go. Looking forward to seeing some samples on your walls.

    I love the teal green color, and all the white woodwork on other walls of the room and the floor really balances it out.

    Here is another room that is more sagey with white trim:

    I love the white floors, the checks, and everything about that blue and white room. But I had to write because my parents had that heart poster in the last picture in our entryway when I was little, and it always makes me so happy to see it! The “original” is in my sister’s house now, but I’ve been meaning to frame a copy to hang over my bed. Thanks for these pictures.

    I saw this over at Remodelista this morning, and immediately thought of your paint debate:

    Looking at the white trim, so fresh and bold, makes me want to repaint…but I think I will stick with my palest gray, sort of a platinum color. It frames the outside views (gray stone paving below, sky above) nicely since it doesn’t “pop” as much as the white.

    But still, nothing like a new paint job to lift the spirits…
