Exterior trim paint color help needed--thanks!

beaglerApril 3, 2011

Although I also posted these questions on the home decorating forum, I did it before realizing there's also this paint forum and apologize for the double posting. Hope someone will be able to advise me! We're in the middle of adding a second floor to a 50 year old ranch. We were very lucky in being able to match the old brick but now need to pick a trim color that will work with the new upstairs windows. They're wood frame, but the "individual panes" have a white vinyl. Currently, our house has BM's White Dove (OC-17) as the trim color. I'm thinking that's not white enough for the new windows? I'd really appreciate any suggestions as to a better trim color--maybe BM's Simply White or Decorator's White?

Also, for interior trim, which is whiter--Cloud White or White Dove? Thanks for your thoughts!
