    This post showed up in my search results and I was really hopeful it would answer my question, but alas, it doesn’t address my specific issue. I have natural wood trim throughout the home I just bought. I am planning to paint most of the trim throughout the home a particular shade of white; however, in one room, I am thinking of painting all the trim a different color that matches the ceiling and wall color on 3 walls–a different shade of white (#2). Anyway, the trim around the door to this room will be White #1, and I’m trying to figure out how to paint the inside (casing?) and the door. Should I use white #1 in the casing? White #2? Should I paint 1 side of the door in White #1 and the other in White #2 (or both sides the same color?)? What about the edges of the door? Maybe I’m over thinking this, but it’s a time consuming process that I don’t want to screw up by not thinking it through beforehand…

    I have done 2 trim colors in my house. Wood and white. The white is in the stairwells and the wood is every where else. I think it works because the stairwells are sperated spaces and natural transition places anyway.
