Different trim colors / Door Jamb

This may be an obvious question. But where do you usally change colors when the inside trim of a room is a different color from the outside of the room trim? Somewhere on the door stop? And how do people handle painting the inside and outside of the door if it's done in different colors? I assume it would be a good idea to stick with a neutral white or stained door, that way it looks good open and closed.

Probably obvious, but would be interested in an answer. :-D

The trim color change is made at the doorstop. If there is a door, the door and all the trim that you can see from the outside [opposite side from hinges] will be painted 1 color. You also paint the 'heel' edge [where hinges are] that color. The toe edge of the door and hinge side along with all the wood that is now visible paints the other color. If there is no door you will usually change colors at the same spot unless there is no door stop - then paint the jamb with which ever side it will look the best.

hope this helps
