I have a dilemma. Perhaps you can help me with it.
Minnie and I have been discussing how we will re-decorate her room. After several months of negotiations and unrealistic expectations and viewing-of-internet-photographs, we have settled on the following color scheme:
Cute, yes? She already has a black metal bed and vanity so I will stain or lacquer her dresser black to match.
I kind of love the white wainscot along the room in the upper picture. I think that with white along the bottom of the room, we could have a darker shade of pink (and a happier Minnie) without it feeling overwhelming. Also, instead of the beadboard, I would really like to do the wainscot in wide strips, like in 1x4s or something (like this but without the cap at the top.)
And my Great Idea is: spaced all along the top board I could put old fashioned drawer pulls where she could hang coats, backpacks, flowers and all manner of cute things.
OK, on to my dilemma.
The problem is this - we have DARKISH WOOD TRIM throughout the ENTIRE HOUSE!!!
I don't mind the wood trim. I've gotten used to it, it looks nice and I'm certainly not going to pay a hozillion dollars to switch out all the trim and doors in the entire house. So, how do I reconcile these two things? Is there any way to put up painted white wainscot and have it not look stupid with wood doors and trim? I'm not opposed to painting the entire room a pale pink, I just really want to find a way to have the strip around the room with the hangy-knobs because I think that would be a fun and functional accent to the room.
All thoughts/ideas appreciated!
