Question opinions on mixing natural wood with white trim..

I just trimmed out one of my basement windows which I was initially going to paint completely white.

Now that I have one rough fit in I kind of like the contrast of the natural wood against the white windows and trim.

Notice I also have grayish brown vinyl wood flooring ( not sure if the light wood will clash ). I'd like to get some opinions on if I should move forward with all white or maybe just throw a Polly over the natural wood.

Open to any other opinions or suggestions.

I would paint it all white. Plus the knots would look like a$$ if you tried to stain it. lol

Its normal to have all the trim the same color, but it's your basement to do with as you please regardless of what anybody thinks is right!

I also think it would look best caulked, primed and painted to match the rest of the trim.
I have painted a few houses where the customer wanted painted and stained wood together and while it didn't look as bad as I would have thought - it wasn't my cup of tea.

Thanks for your opinions. I'm gonna go with majority rules on this and move forward with the all white.
