It’s easy to over complicate choosing paint colours for your interior decorating project, especially when selecting which white trim to co-ordinate for trim and ceilings.
But I’m here to help and make things easier for you!
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.
Custom living room design of our Burlington clients where we painted the walls Pashmina which has a green undertone.
Abingdon Putty has a green undertone as well and it’s the colour we selected for another Burlington client’s living room, except this style is more traditional and with purple accents. Photos below by KWest Images.

This week I’m heading to Las Vegas for the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show! It’s my third year attending the show and it’s always exciting to see the latest trends, which inevitably always involves colour too!

“Hi Claire! I did my studio condo in Palm Beach in Hale Navy and used White Dove for the ceiling and trim. I love it! What do you think if I used the colour coral gable in the bathroom?”
I pulled these three colours to see how they worked together. Watch my video to see my response.
Here you can clearly see this striking paint palette combination of White Dove, Hale Navy and Coral Gable by Benjamin Moore.
This paint palette below was inspired by similar tones that you can see in the fabric.
Perfect For Pinning!
A little more feminine and fresh blue colour combinations below.
I used the vibrant bird fabric in the graphic above to cover panels on this old cabinet in my own living room. See more photos of my decorated house here.
Sticking with blues that you can find in my house, below paint palette is inspired by my daughter Elise’s bedroom that I designed with her a couple of years ago. The wavy fabric was our inspiration piece for her room.

Although we didn’t tie in too much of the purple-blue found in the fabric of the custom pillow, that colour can be found in the striped pleated drapery. See more of this clients home here.
Here is another fabric with a purply blue tone. Mixed with very different colours that are slightly more subtle.
Most of the paint palettes below have more of a masculine feel to them. Which one is your favourite?
In the photograph below (taken by Stephani Buchman photograpy) the colour Classic Gray is not shown, but could easily tie in with this paint palette.
We created 2 palettes for the Geode inspired fabric shown below. Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams is shown and if you want to see my colour review of that gorgeous colour, click here.
The fabric shown above was used for a custom accent cushion in our Toronto clients living room design. See more photos of their project in our portfolio here.
My colour review of Hale Navy post has not only my TNT (THE NAKED TRUTH) video, but also a second video where you can find out exactly how I created the design for the living room above, as well as the dining area where we painted the niche and the ceiling Hale Navy.
