Re: Crown molding - Baseboard - Trim - Ceiling white or other?

I'd use finger jointed poplar if you're going to paint. It looks the same as MDF. In other words, there's no visible grain to the poplar once painted. Poplar and pine are probably about the same in terms of hardness, but the poplar is less expensive.

For us, we recently had all of our upstairs finished in crown. We used a glossy linen color for all of the trim in the house, including the crown. We use white ceiling paint for the ceilings. There's enough contrast between the trim and the ceiling paint to make the trim look nice, since the walls have color. The linen gives it a nice rich look.
