Paint colors that work with cream trim with yellow undertones

honeybasilDecember 12, 2013

Our whole house has trim that is very creamy, I think with yellow undertones. I made the mistake of painting one room SW Blonde which doesn't look right at all. How do I pick colors that look good against this type of trim? Unfortunately I don't know the exact trim color as we "inherited" the color on the walls when we bought the house. I would like a good beige color for my boys' bedroom, so specifically any suggestions for that would be great!

Oh, and my boys actually want the paint to be Oregon Ducks football green which I can't even begin to know how to pick out, so I was thinking beige with Oregon accessories (since we live in the South, I'm hoping the Oregon obsession is just a fad!)

The Oregon green is quite dark. Probably too dark for what you would want in or on a house. If it is a fad it's a hard color to cover.

I like a light tan or khaki. It looks good with anything and reflects light well.
