We are building a new house & need a good, neutral color for the interior walls & ceilings. Our kitchen cabinets are dove white. Would that be a good color for the trim including the doors. Thanks!

Dove White is always a great choice. Do you have a favorite FAMILY of color you can embrace? That would determine your family for neutral. Also, be aware of the placement of your windows and that each direction gives a different quality of light, which will impact how the color will read on the walls.

White dove is great color for trim and doors for a neutral color with warmth look at macadamia from Sherwin

Thank you. Since this is a new construction, we are allowed 2 color choices, one for the ceiling & walls and one for the trim. I thought since we are using white dove for our cabinets, that it would look good as trim.. My confusion is with ceiling & wall color. We have faux beams that will be faux painted so unsure of color as a starting point.

Dove white always looks stunning as a trim and never disappoints. Even putting dove white on the ceiling aswell or a different kind of white could look nice then having a color like in the photo ive attached for the walls.

So you are saying you can choose one color for the walls but not another for the ceiling?
