mletrav, you must live in San Francisco : ) I knew exactly what you meant by "Marina Style" apartment, but I think that only people in SF would get it ;-)

Our house was built last year, and we have both. It is beautiful.

We've recently finished putting an addition on our home and we have both crown and base molding.Although it can be very expensive (we also added them both to the rest of the house) it looks gorgeous and adds so much to the decor.....

Adding crown molding is on my to-do list for the new year.

We have base molding. I like crown molding but it simply doesn't go with the design scheme of my home.

In our 1912 "marina style" flat, we've got basebaords and picture molding, which I love. Many of our walls are painted soft white, but the ceilings are colored, with the color extending down to the (white) picture molding, which I think is a nice, subtle way to include color. And then there's trim around windows, doors, etc, not to mention some built-in bookcases. All in all, I'm pretty pleased, although I've thought about adding chair rails or panel moulding in some rooms.

In my Edwardian condo we have built-in consoles with leaded glass, crown molding, baseboards, box-beam or cathedral-cornered ceilings, doorframes with crown molding, beadboarding in the kitchen and bathrooms, and wainscoting in the dining room with a ledge 3/4th up. I LOVE old house charm! :-D

we also have beautiful crown molding, and molding much like the one in the pic, above our fireplace. The molding is white, and we painted the room a deep chocolate brown, so it really makes all the molding pop. people thought we were crazy to paint the living room such a dark color, but with all of the white molding, it really works!

My house that I am closing on later this month has a chair rail on one wall in the bedroom, and we are going to try to complete it.

We have both baseboard and crown, as well as moulding around every window and doorway (going to be a HUGE painting task). It was a built-in perk, but our condo isn't very old.

Base molding only.

We remodeled our apartment (we've been here almost 8 years!) so crown moldings were one of the additions:) The entire place is definitely a show-stopper!! Which, along with the great rent and location, is another reason why we're still here after so long just renting lol.
