Upgraded Trim for Crisp Lines

Like the rest of the house, this living room was in great shape but needed help. The homeowner hid the original built-ins' valances with new trim and installed Colonial Revival crown for a crisp, clean look reflected in the dentil mold of the room's mantel.

Typically reserved for nicer rooms of the home, this style harnesses a mix of bold (Greek Revival) and light (Federal) profiles for the best of both worlds. Crown profiles may include the S shape of an ogee and the double curved cyma.

This just-needy-enough Colonial Revival was chock full of honey-do projects.
