The right white from Dunn Edwards
August 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need help trying to find the right whites for the interior of my house. i have an old victoria house with triple crown molding. i want to keep it classic white. i want the moldings and walls to have two seperate color whites that compliment each other. i want the walls to look creamy and not to bright. using dunn edwards...any suggestions please

Choose a white that goes with the flooring. Do you have hardwood? If so, what kind and color?

It will look better if the wall color is definitely different from the molding color. Cream plus white is a good match. Think vanilla ice cream with whipped cream.

I have dark brown hard wood flooring. I really like that analogy of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. This is what I was kinda thinking, but wasnt quite sure if that combo would work. Thanks!

There are lots of vanilla ice cream colors. Pick one that goes with the tone of the dark hardwood, then the white that goes with it. Dunn Edwards has lots of cream and white colors, you will probably find several good choices.
