Help! Wood Trim windows with painted trim elsewhere?
I purchased a mid-rehab 1908 graystone that already has a colonial primed trim installed. The house is very transitional (open floor plan on the first floor), but I'd like to respect the historic nature of the house and put in wood windows with oak jams and sills. I can afford to replace the trim around the windows and order new stainable oak doors for the home (those were also replaced with hollow core doors); but I am not sure we can afford to replace all of the other trim. Is there a way to make this look good or do I need embrace the painted look and order white windows to match a white trim? I'm particularly concerned because the door trim will be very close to window trim in a few places. I was thinking that maybe if I used a darker paint color on the baseboard and door trim it might be better.
