I tend to have around 10 white paint colours that are my best whites for trim and ceilings. You don’t need all of the thousands of whites available to you to get the right one and you definitely don’t need to mix two different whites or use only a certain percentage of paint colour to get the right one for you.

I can assure you that the best colour for your project already exists, you just need to know the 5 Steps on how to choose the right paint colour the first time.

    Great review. I like how you suggest colour combinations. I’m currently debating between Edgecomb grey and grey cashmere for my open main floor to complement an accent wall in Aegean Teal.

      Hi Stephanie. Both options sound lovely to pair with Aegean Teal. Good luck in making your decision!
