white trim paint color here is Benjamin Moore’s White Dove Satin Impergo OC 17
Paint Trim Color Number 2. Benjamin Moore’s Decorator’s White OC 149

Here we used Benjamin Moore’s Decorator’s White on both the walls (in an eggshell finish) and on the trim (in the satin impergo finish.)
There’s nothing wrong with using the same color on both walls and trim!
Considered a cooler white, this color has a bluish undertone, and creates a very bright, white modern look.
I like to think of this as a very clean white, I’ve also heard it describes as a super white.
* Update! After a lot of follow up questions, I now have an entire post dedicaed to Benjamin Moore Decorators White as well!
Color Number 3. Benjamin Moore’s White OC-151
Benjamin Moore White Dove compared with Benjamin Moore White OC – 151
When we first moved to our house here in Connecticut, I was pretty sure I was going to use Benjamin Moore White Dove on our kitchen cabinets and also on all the trim work in our kitchen.
However, once I saw it up on the cabinets (as seen above) it didn’t look white enough for the space.
This might because our kitchen is north facing.
I had my heart set on more of true white shade of white paint.
That’s when I learned about Benjamin Moore White OC 151.
We chose this vibrant white, also simply known as Benjamin Moore OC-151. I love how it looks in our kitchen.
Our third floor finished attic also got the OC-151 treatment!

In fact, we love it so much we just used it on almost every wall in our beach house renovation, including the trim!
Using the same color with a different sheen or finish on the trim is a great way to make a space look pulled together and modern.
White with white is my go to combo lately. You’ll never regret this chic choice.
If you need more color in the room, you can always bring it in with carpet, art, accessories and so forth!
Sure enough, just like the other two above, I now have an entire post dedicated to Benjamin Moore White OC-151 too!
