Wide, traditional moldings with a glossy white finish add classic style in the traditional entryway of this Brooklyn townhouse. Dark-stained treads on the stairway and a dark handrail pop against the bright white trim for a crisp, pleasing contrast.
Sunny yellow walls are enhanced by stunning crown molding details and large windows that bathe the room in sunlight. Comfortable seating and a pair of houseplants make the room feel cozy as well as beautiful.
If you have solid but unremarkable builder-grade cabinets, the simplest route to a high-end look is adding some height with crown molding. Interior designer Sarah Macklem of The Yellow Cape Cod tackled this project in her own kitchen with striking results.
Designers used a soothing gray-blue color and crisp white crown molding to evoke a calming environment in this neutral multiuse room. With the addition of the vintage piano and bar cart, they transformed this previously unused space into the ultimate traditional study.
This royal prince nursery, designed by celebrity nursery designer Sherri Blum, features baby blue, creamy white and silver to give it an ethereal appeal. The high, angled ceiling called for custom crown molding, and a painted blue pennant was the perfect finishing touch to accentuate the room and provide a canopy over the space.
Simple white walls call attention to the stunning molding in this living room. The back interior of the entertainment center and the bookshelves has been painted a reddish brown, breaking up the sea of white and helping visually connect the room to the kitchen next door.
This small white bathroom gets its distinction from unique touches, like its sage green trim, petite round mirror, wall-mounted shelf and industrial-style sconce light fixture. Throughout this modern farmhouse, white walls and painted moldings create crisp vignettes that are at once homey and chic.
Use conventional materials in unconventional ways. Painted and stacked to form a stripe pattern leading towards the ceiling, the crown molding seen here results in an eye-catching design that draws the eye up while also serving as a textural and layered backdrop for artwork.
