In the world of interior decorating, paint color is a constant topic of conversation, speculation and new trends. While attention has typically been given to choosing the right wall color, I’ve noticed a shift toward a new focus on trim color. Here’s a look at some of the trim trends we’re seeing.

What do you think? If you’re afraid to paint an entire wall a different color, why not try just the trim?
