Eddie Bauer Flax walls, white trim. What color ceiling?

nutsaboutplantsJuly 31, 2014

Urgent request. Please help. I've chosen Eddie Bauer Flax paint for the walls (very neutral, sandy taupe). The trim will be high gloss, but not sure if I should go with pure white or a creamy off white. In our current home, the ceilings are the same color as the walls, but I want white or light ceilings in the new house. So Should I have ceilings painted the same color as the trim? Ay thoughts? The ceilings are 12' and 13' high and there is sufficient natural light.

Please help. I need to confirm the paint color form the painter by tomorrow. Thank you!

Thanks Christopher. The house is being painted as we speak. Flax on all walls, flat except for kitchen and closets. Kitchen and closets will be Flax in satin. High gloss pure white for the trims, crown, etc. I learnt that SW pure white, comtrary to its name, has a tint of Raw Amber, which is SW's brown. The ceilings will be 75% Flax and 25% white. Thanks for the feedback.
