Need help with baseboard/trim color
I am remodeling my townhouse. I am going for a soft contemporary look. Not cold modern.
My floors are a dark walnut, the paint in the home is Ralph Lauren Cinderblock, a long accent wall in Behr Pencil Point, and I also used Behr Elephant skin.
I have 5" baseboards installed.
The room is somewhat dark so I want to do white baseboards that pop out (plan to add crown molding later)
What color white can you recommend. The baseboards were previously painted Swiss Coffee, and that is also the color my painter came up with. Should I use this or should I go with a bright white?
Do I play it safe and stick with semi gloss, or should I follow some advice I have seen on the web and go with a bright white high gloss?
I guess the baseboards and door jambs will be painted this color. I will also be new interior panel doors. Do I use the color that I chose for the trim and use an eggshell like the rest of the home? I am guessing that you dont paint doors with semi gloss/high gloss paint.
Thanks for the help
