One of my repeat clients recently inquired about painting a few of her interior doors black, but leaving the remaining trim white. I've seen that done before and knew it would look good. I thought it was worthy of publishing so that all of my visual followers could see it and imagine it in their own homes. She wanted a black distressed look, but since the doors were white it would have required extra layers to have "wood" show through instead of the white. So to mimic that look, we hi lighted some of the edges with a sheer gold. It gives the same effect and was much more simple.
A pretty simple update, but oh how it really enhances the space! Another small update we did last year was her fireplace surround. Instead of a big white surround, we painted and glazed to mimic a rustic wood look. Again, it really warms up the space and make it's much more personal. It helps that she has a true eye for accessorizing!
