HELP QUICK! I need to pick a trim color by tomorrow morning.

My walls will be SW Alabaster SW7008 and I want to go with a lighter white for the trim. The problem is that the only lighter white that Sherwin Williams can offer is "Extra White SW 7006." Which is actually base with no pigment added. I just don't know if it'll be too cold for all my doors and trim. I want a color with a little warmth to it but still have it be different enough from Alabaster to stand out. Ideas?

I would do the trim and walls in alabaster but trim in semigloss and walls in flat you'll get contrast that way

That's a really good idea, only problem is that I have kids so the paint has to be washable. The walls were going to be eggshell. Any further suggestions?

My kids are grown, but I like eggshell on my walls, too. You could do a high gloss on the trim with the Alabaster instead of the semi-gloss.
