I want to say it's flipping/HGTV shows, but I remember my parents telling me in the early 90s about friends of theirs that lovingly restored a 19th c. victorian house, stripped and refinished all the trim, then they sold and the new owners sprayed everything white.Overdone white trim and crowns are like the hegemony of the scandinavian minimalist interior design movement. Safe, boring, everywhere.
Constantly thinking of resale value leads to boring choices, though. We're going to paint the walls a relatively dark color (after adding more lighting), and pretty much everyone we've talked to thinks we're crazy. Everything has to be BRIGHT BRIGHT BRIGHT now.
