My dining room has traditional trimwork found here in the Atlanta area, (wall frame style?). I would like to add trim to the entry and up the stairs. Do I have to stay with the same style or can a I mix it up and do a batten and board style? Thanks!

    You can do what ever you like...If however you are planing to sell in the near future then picking a more traditional style with provide more "mass appeal"

    Yes, there is no rule as to you have to match the trim. This is a chance to get creative. What types of trim to you have currently? Post some pics here like Lee Anne said it will be great to see the trims that you are trying to incorporate as well.

    Pics always help? Depends on your tastes and the style of your home. You could add a chair rail with stained or painted beadboard below. It's a great look and will take abuse if you paint the beadboard with a semi-gloss paint.
