To Paint or Not?

 

I have always been a painted trim, woodwork, and cabinet kind of girl. However I have been seeing some fantastic homes that are incorporating natural woodwork in the design and the feeling is a beautiful European look.

It seems to be a top question clients ask if they should have have painted trim and cabinets or leave it natural. The strange thing is most of the guys have some strange obsession with natural woodwork. I am not sure if it is the primal being in them getting back to their roots which give them such a strong opinion on this topic.  The women usually want painted and a light feminine look.  I think there are ways to make both sides happy.

I tend to gravitate to the lighter wood species like white oak and greyed or washed woods. What works in these spaces below and that appeals to me is the abundance of white or cream which balances everything out giving a light, airy, earthy feel, a Ying and Yang approach.

I have been obsessed with this photo love everything about it, the balance of natural woodwork with white and pattern can not be beat.
