Simple Panelled Dining Room

Basic trim adds inexpensive architectural interest.

To get the look of custom raised panelling, designers Melissa Davis and Halina Catherine of Catherine + Davis applied simple 1-1/2" trim to this dining room's walls, creating architectural interest on the cheap. Painting the trim the same colour as the walls puts a modern interpretation on a classic look.
