A question for all you trim carpenters out there. Is it possible or advisable to mix different interior trim styles than what the style of the house suggests?
I have what is otherwise a traditional center hall colonial style house. I would like to upgrade the trim inside the house. I like the decorative crown on the window/door header of the craftsman/arts and crafts style. How best can I use this type of decorative header treatment while still somewhat stay in keeping with the colonial style of the house.
Various books show a fluted casing instead of the 1x mixed with the decorative header, but I’m not a fan of the fluted casing. Would a piece of 3″ colonial casing work here or would it just look off?
