Divine Details: Black Trim

Black Trim 6
Hello! It’s Katy Byrne from DBK: Designs By Katy. I’m back with another installment of Divine Details. One detail I’m currently craving is black trim. It gives your typical traditional finish a much more dramatic appeal.

Painting your trim black (especially in a lacquered finish) can really amplify your style. Choose a sturdy profile (at least 6″ tall) for base and crown and watch your interiors go from bland to glam. Don’t forget to visit me over at Designs By Katy. What do you think of black trim?

  3. Love it. High impact…
    I painted my interior doors black along with the crown in my powder bath. What a difference. Great photos.
