Metrie Masters on: Vivid Palettes

September 18, 2018
by The Finished Space

Make a splash with a bold color palette! To do it right, go big or go home because more is more—ok, we’ll stop. But really, our Metrie Masters know how to combine a vivid can of paint with bold interior finishings and striking decor. Take a look at these rooms for eye-catching trimspiration that’ll drive you to fill your vision board with color.

Alpha Developments

Alpha Development's colorful space is filled with Metrie trim

In this charming living room, sharp lines and open windows deliver a modern spin that keeps bold, yellow walls and eccentric decor in check. It’s all about balance, and Alpha Developments is nailing it.

Bold mustard yellow creates a global look in this eccentric space.

The clean lines of the Very Square baseboard and architrave aren’t the only things keeping the vivid yellow from becoming overwhelming. The trim is painted in a crisp white to emphasize the strong and sleek shape and perfectly balances the room. Look closely, the designer cleverly chose to include architrave on the top and bottom of the windows for a bold statement that looks sleeker than a large casing all the way around the window.

Chrissy & Co.

Bold accent colors and a graphic palette are the centerpieces of this design

The black and white palette in this fashionable boutique is further enhanced by the use of interior finishings and decor. In fact, purple velvet, cozy yellow, metallics, and a rainbow of fabrics take this room to the next level.

Curated Home by Chrissy & Co. mixes Parisian style and Hollywood Regency with pops of color, and we’re in love (have been for months, take a peek at our March moodboard inspired by this space). The Fashion Forward crown moulding and MDF panel mould used here are painted to match the walls they’re installed on so each wall, black or white, has dimension. Take note: there’s no rule that says your interior finishings can only be painted white.

L7 Construction, Inc.

Metrie's French Curves door and trim make an appearance in this lovely bedroom

Baby pink and blue-grey are an unexpected but welcoming pair in this little girl’s room. An oasis from brothers, this room truly is fit for a princess. In a stroke of genius, the pale pink is used mostly in the decor while the walls are blue with white wainscotting so this room can grow and evolve, just like little girls do.

L7 Construction skillfully designed this room with Metrie’s elegant and feminine French Curves Collection and interior door, making the canvas of this space visually interesting. We love the crown and baseboard pairing and the wainscotting effect created with panel mould and chair rail. What little girl wouldn’t want to grow up in this magical room?

Decora Homes Ltd.

Decora Home's inspired Metrie's monthly moodboard with their home theatre design

When designing a home theatre, is there really any other choice than red? We’ve been thinking about Decora Homes‘s vintage glam room all month, and we still can’t get enough. Pairing the red walls and seating with an unexpected chocolate accent color for the crown moulding, baseboards, along with pillows and throws, elevates the room from stuck-in-the-past to vintage luxury.

Moreover, we can’t get over Decora Homes’ wise choice of using bronze paint for the door’s Fashion Forward architrave and casing, matching perfectly to the unique panel mould and elegant curtain ropes.


If these rooms don’t have you dreaming in living color, we don’t know what will. Hopefully, our Masters have inspired you to take your palette to the next level, and empowered you to extend or balance your vivid colors with interior finishings.


We’re always in awe of the creative and beautiful ways builders and designers use our products to turn rooms into stunning, finished spaces. Each month this year, we’re featuring amazing spaces from the Every Room Tells A Story — 2017 Builder & Designer Challenge because these participants truly have artfully mastered Metrie interior finishings, thus them being dubbed as Metrie Masters, and their work deserves to be celebrated.
