HELP! what is this style of paint called???

I want to paint my kitchen and I know what it looks like but i dont know what the style is called. A layer of paint then the corners are painted to make it look like its old and worn, kind of vintage looking? does anyone know what I mean. do you know where i can get a pic? for example. cream colored paint then edges are brushed with gold.. thank you inn advance. :p

It sounds like you are referring to over-glazing. After painting a surface with a base color a glazing is applied, generally at the edges, the feathered in toward the center. The glazing comes in many colors. It was very poular back in the 60's.
