Favorite Paint Colors – Conclusion

Of course, it goes without saying, you need to love the paint colors you choose for your walls.

These colors are the ones we’ve had great success with here in my own home.

But, I always recommend trying it out as a sample in your home first.

It’s true, even the surrounding light from one room to another can differ, so this will always alter the look of any paint color.

Live with a few samples for a few days before making your final decision. this is SO important.

Always be sure to test the color in natural light and artificial light too!

Another great way to try out a Benjamin Moore paint color is to get these large self sticking paint samples.

Doesn’t this sounds so smart?

No messy paint cans to deal with before you commit! Win/win!

    Good afternoon,
    I am going to be painting my house Ben Moore’s White Dove. It seems to be a very popular creamy white (no yellow undertones) which is what we want. I have a two story colonial. My windows are white- we can’t afford to replace with the popular black ones. We will paint the shutters black. Above our window we have a white crown molding and we have white trim on our house already. The painter recommended keeping the white trim to slightly offset the white dove. I though initally making it the same of the house, but I do see where a contrast would be nice. Can you suggest a white for the trim and crown molding that would compliment the white dove. Would it be ben moore white or do you have another recommendation for the trim? Thank you
