Jennifer Ott Design added this to Trim Color Tips: Get Your White Trim Right
Cool white trim colors. Each of these paint colors reads as plain white or a slight off-white individually. But when they're placed next to one another, you can really see the hints of other colors they contain.Depending on the color calibration of your monitor, what you see here color-wise is not necessarily what you are going to get. Always refer to the actual paint swatches when selecting colors and sample any colors you like to make sure they work in your space.From left to right:1. Site White SW7070, Sherwin-Williams2.

Trim Colors A foolproof way to select a trim color is to take a cue from the color palette in the room. If you are painting your walls a cool color (greens, blues, purples or grays), then find a white that reads as cooler. The easiest way to do this is to put swatches of various white paints next to one another and see how they play off one another. Some colors will appear more warm or beige-like; others will read as a very light gray with hints of green, blue or purple.
