Need help with paint finishes

ccedernaJanuary 22, 2013
We are painting the whole renovation swiss coffee. The house is very old and has some original walls/trim and new ones. i am worried that satin paint will show too many imperfections but i also have a 3yr old and pets. It is a modern/vintage mix and is inconsistent in rooms with trim etc. where it makes sense. Should i paint everything the same finish or satin just the bathrooms. HELP! i have already taken this property from ruble to rubies and am out of steam.

I am no a decorator, but I love it white. It stunning, very lovely. I passed the picture and came back to look closer .... I would not change a thing.

We did our whole (little) home Swiss Coffee before we sold it. We used gloss for the woodwork and Satin/semigloss for the walls.(Hubby wanted eggshell) That gave a subtle texture contrast plus the gloss was more scrubbable. In this dim old house I'm using glossy ultra white trim and it brighten the Swiss Coffee and my other colors. love the pics.

I love this place...wonderful job! You should be able to get by with eggshell. In baths maybe a semigloss??? The imperfections add to this gorgeous place..I like a patina on things...

The photos are "look" examples. Our home is on track to being like these. Thanks for all the input!
