Paint colors


Hi folks!
Need some advice.
We are re doing our dining room.
I added chair rail.
I added arches to 2 doorways.
I added flexible casing around the 2 arched doorways.
There is 1 window with trim painted white.
And crown molding the same color as the ceiling, off white.
QUESTION:
Should the chair rail color match the door casing color?
What about window trim, based board crown molding color?
The lower wall half will be a dark taupe and a muted gold type on top.

Thanks so much!

The chair rail should match the door casing color - it's considered trim. The window trim and baseboards are trim too. You want it to all look the same. Slight verations are not going to kill you, but I would try to keep them the same.
