Painting your baseboards the same color as your walls is daring.

No body does it. Once...they used white and dark blue...a wall was completely dark blue...and some walls were white with the dark blue trim (which is diff too...rare to see dark colour trim)... Why not? Try a bright red wall accent wall with black trim...

The wall with the All dark blue...that can be broken up with some white stencilling in the middle...

Overall when you vary the technique...you end up making a room look interesting. And when you paint the trim of doors the darker colour instead of always the white...it looks a bit glam.

Do people actually do that. Mine are stained.

That design hasn't started in the new homes around here.....but it does sound interesting. I would never do it, too much work when painting or changing the décor.

@Sukiesnow Great! How's it going...

In the process of moving Sukie. We just got some decorators in at the new place, then carpet fitters, some vertical blinds....

Then we can start thinking about all the disassembling, unmounting, packing, moving type stuff.mario8 smilie
