I’m so surprised to say that a light colored paint scheme is making our moulding and millwork pop. But it really is!
Updating your home with a light colored paint scheme has been on trend for a while now. We probably have JoAnna Gaines to thank for that. She makes light walls look beautiful. But I was kind of afraid to go whole house with it. But now that I’m updating our 7th room with this look, I have to say it absolutely improves every single room so far!
This light, fresh paint color makes our rooms seem more homey, less cluttered, and a bit more elegant. Which is a miracle in itself. 😉 I’m not a designer, guys. I was a Software Developer in my former life. But I try pretty hard to put a pretty space together. So, seeing how lightening up the paint color on the walls has refreshed our home, has been a great design learning experience.
AND, the most amazing thing is that this light colored paint scheme is also making our millwork, crown molding, and the architecture, in general, just pop! Check out these pictures to see what I mean. Maybe a light colored paint scheme would be the perfect idea for your home too.
