Thank you!! Quick question, I'm in Raleigh about to redo a old home....are people painting the wall ceiling and trim the exact same color throughout the main opened level, without doing a 1/2 coat on the ceiling?

In this case we painted everything the same, with the trims having a satin finish against the flatter walls and ceilings. It is a new house with lots of light, and we wanted to make the walls and ceilings blend in with each other... Paint is very tricky, and there are many factors to take into consideration, like your furnishings and the amount of light you get in the room. There are also various stylistic considerations (more traditional vs. more modern, etc...) It would be a little more traditional to have the ceiling a lighter shade than the walls, and the trim lighter still, but it is really up to you!
