Color Scheme Help

We have a darker creme-colored woodwork with lighter walls of the same shade. throughout out the house. It is Powell Buff, a Benjamin Moore color. We would rather continue with this color on the woodwork to avoid repainting. Question is, if we go with a room color change, is it OK to keep the creme woodwork, or should we paint it white in the room itself? The door opens into the room & there would be the creme door with all the other trim in white. The Karastan rug is red with large scroll-like flowers in muted shades of yellow, blue & a light sage green. It's not going anywhere! The green is probably our choice. Can anyone help us with ideas/input. We would so appreciate it

Color Scheme Help

Depending on the wall colors you choose, your cream woodwork might work just fine (for example, deep warm colors).

It's usually best to keep all woodwork the same color throughout - you don't want to interrupt the flow, but in rooms with doors you can break this "rule" sometimes.
