In this week’s video, I’m answering a question from a reader who wanted to know which white to use for her trim and ceiling that would work with her existing paint colours. It’s part of my ‘Instant Colour Claire-ity’ series, because I believe it shouldn’t be stressful to choose the right paint colours the first time for your home.

What’s the Best White Trim Paint For My Project?

Love The Colour Green?

Here’s a kitchen design we did for clients using Copley Gray by BM on the island. See all of our clients interior design project here.

This is the same client’s kids bathroom with greige painted walls.

  1. Watched your video on the best white trim. I am remodeling a home in Fredericksburg TX with red wood floors. We chose BM’s White Dove for cabinets, trim and ceilings. It goes well with our Nimbus bedroom walls. Haven’t chosen paint color yet for the rest of the home – might use light pewter. Kitchen cabinets are White Dove and the counter tops are Sequoia Brown Fantasy. Thinking of making paint for island cabinet baltic gray or willow creek (all BM brand) Any thoughts? Many of the warmer white colors look too yellow in this home since the floor color has so much yellow/red. We did refinish floors with no stain, just sealer to lighten them up. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    • Hi Cheryl. Thanks for your comment and for watching my video. I don’t have all of these finishes to hand, so there is not a quick and easy answer for what you are asking. There is a lot to consider and making a mistake will be time consuming and costly. My advice is to seek out a colour expert in your area and invest in a consultation meeting. If you are interested in an online colour consultation, please email me: info@clairejefford.com.

  2. Hi Claire. Thank you for this post. I have a question related to this…if a client has a home filled with white-white California shutters (such as Chantilly Lace) but has a White Dove kitchen…will that colour on the casing create a clean and dirty look with the clean white shutters?

    • What I suggest Vanessa is considering first how close the shutters are to the cabinetry in the kitchen. And can the trim around the shutters be the brighter white but the baseboards and crown continue through the house with the White Dove? Where everything is in relation will be a factor, but also how fussy the home owner is about mixing a white and off white. I personally don’t like to if I can avoid it, but I know many designers have done so with pleasing results.

  3. What dark blue colors go with Benjamin Moore Nimbus? I’m thinking of painting bathroom cabinets dark blue and the walls are Nimbus.

    • Hey Cheryl. So many dark blues would go with Nimbus, it really depends on whether you want the cabinetry to lean towards more of a blue or a dark gray. For example, Lead Gray and Midnight (which happen to be in the same number line up as Nimbus) are deep blue grays that would look fantastic. For more blue, Hale Navy or Kensington Blue would work wonderfully as well.
