Arren Williams is the name, and I'm a stylist, editor and trend reporter. You'll catch my work regularly popping up in print in the likes of the National Post, House & Home and elsewhere. I'm also a guest expert on Citytv's CityLine, and you can occasionally find me on HGTV as well as on ABC 7 News in Chicago.

To keep things fun I've tapped a couple of friends - Julia Black and Jenn Hannotte - to contribute their views on design too. Enjoy!

Ask Arren > stair trim colour

my treads and risers are dark stained oak. Can I paint the stair trim the same as the wall (oatmeal colour) or should I keep it white?

thanks mike

Hi Mike, I'd either stick with a white to match the rest of the trim in your house, or - alternatively - you could look at painting it black, which can look terribly handsome in an older home. My fave black for staricase trim is Farrow & Ball's Off-Black.
