Decorating & Furniture/Paint

Question
We are buying a new home.  The wall color throughout the house is Kelly Moore's "Graystone" which is a light khaki.  The wood work throughout is Kelly Moore's "Bone."  However, I painted my little girls room a light shade of pink.  It looks horrible with the "bone."  Her bedding is pink, blue and white patchwork.  So, I don't think the bedding would look good if her walls matched the rest of the house.  I guess my question is...Can I paint the woodwork just in her room to look better with the pink?  Is it OK if the color of the woodwork is different than the rest of the house?     Thank you!!!

Answer
Thanks for your question.  Usually all built-in woodwork is the same throughout the home, but in this particular case, I'd either darken the pink or paint the trim a bright white.  As long as it is the same within the room, it's OK.

Regards,
Jenny

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
