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.
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.
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.
A transitional dining room features white crown molding and wall molding, a perfect complement to the soft taupe walls. A drum-style chandelier hangs over a sleek wood dining table and comfy suede dining chairs.
This midcentury modern living room features warm neutral colors with white crown molding, wainscoting and other architectural trim. A curved beige sofa provides seating, as does a pair of stylish brown stools for occasional seating.
This dark, bold seating area attached to the master suite offers a comfy, neutral sofa with chaise. Two gray columns visually divide the rooms and compliment the white crown molding, ceilings, and framed gallery art wall.
