Trim-does one white fit all?

Poor trim, it always seems to get the short end of the stick when it comes to color choices. While people obsess over paint colors for walls, trim is often neglected, along with ceilings, and by default, assigned the all-encompassing white. There's an excellent article posted on the history of trim colors, and a plea to readers to consider all the various color options out there.

The journalist's enthusiastic argument is a compelling one:
Our eye goes automatically to the lightest and brightest thing. Why should this be trim? Against colour, it grabs the eye and takes it on a bumpy ride outlining walls, crashing around room perimeters, separating the walls from the floor, interrupting every vista and joining up with doors to make big clunking visual statements. White trim tries to make us think that the wall colour is darker than it is and that colour is oh so tiring! Colour gets the blame, but the busy and bossy effect of white trim is at fault.

It's true, there is no one solution to every color palette when it comes to trim. While pastel walls might look striking when outlined in crisp white trim, the darker colors can often look garish and the effect, too choppy. It's a matter of context, and contrast. The article suggests:
Grey, tans and taupes will still read as white against a dark wall, but they won't read as bleached or as plastic edging. The effect of reducing the contrast between trim and wall is like taking a slow, deep breath. Suddenly there is visual flow, elegance and a relaxed calm that only good colour uninterrupted can bring.(source)

Have any of you tried trim in something other than white white? How did it turn out?
