Trim and wainscoting color question

December 29, 2012 in Photo Questions
Love your work! After seeing your photos I've chosen shaker beige for my wall colors. I may go just a hair lighter in the hall. I have BM's cloud white (967) that I had planned on using for all my trim and wainscoting. The ceiling I was going to use Kelly Moore's lovely lace (OW255-1). But after seeing the white linen you use I'm wondering if I should use that instead of the cloud white. What do you think? My floors are travertine, versailles pattern, furniture chocolate brown. If this helps. Thanks!!

Mary - That's a tough one. All I can say is Linen White has more warmth and yellow than Cloud White. I typically use the same color on the trim as I do the ceiling. I just falt on the ceiling and semigloss on the trim. Best of luck and send a photo when it's done.

Hi again to my favorite Houzz designer. I've used the shaker beige in my family room and adjoining dining area. I cut the color 50% with white to use on my hall walls. But it still seems a bit too dark. Is there a color you could recommend that would blend in nicely with the shaker beige or should I have the color cut by 75%? I also, used the cut version on the 4 small areas above kitchen windows but not sure if I like it or not yet. Thank you for your kindness in helping all of us.
