I am in the process of repainting the trim of my 1916 house, which has very textured stucco between false half timbers in the gables.

In priming, I have noticed that it is extremely tedious and difficult to cut in around where the stucco meets the trim, as the textured surface is uneven. Originally (I think, as the paint was in very poor condition), the stucco and trim were in a cream coloured oil paint, so no colour transition was necessary.

I want to paint them different colours and I intend on limewashing/whitewashing the stucco, whereas the trim will be acrylic paint over alkyd primer. So at least the coating material will be different.

Do I cut in and keep the edges of each piece of trim the same, do I make the colour change at the corner of the edge and face of the trim, or am I completely off and I have to make both trim and stucco the same colour with this house's architectural style?
