The deep walls make for correspondingly deep window sills – deep enough to place small potted plants, picture frames, or other trinkets. We use medium density fiberboard for window trim, door trim, and baseboard. The frame expanders and sills are made out of solid hardwood (poplar) since they are potentially subjected to more wear.
The trim is painted white with a tinge of grey. We think the combination of stained floors and stained doors with painted trim is striking. The dark stained wood has a prominent impact since it stands in contrast to the painted areas of the house. We did not want to over-saturate the house with stained wood.
