I can't decide which white paint to use for trims. Please share the paint color you used. Thanks!

SW Creamy. I love it because it's definitely not stark, but it is white enough that it doesn't look yellow in my girls' pastel rooms.

We love BM's Acadia...too me it is a creamy white, but still white & not bright white. I don't see any undertones in this color...with so many I felt like the color looked "dirty" or had yellow, pink or other undertones.

I now feel like I lack all creativity ;) in my current house we just used the bright white semi gloss from Behr on the doors and trim - looks great! :)

We used Porter Velvet White - have used in the past 3 houses. It is no longer made but is very similar to dover white as I realized when I ordered plantation shutters for our bedrooms. Simply White is lovely - by BM - we used it on a vanity. We wanted creamier cabinets and trim. It is less creamy than Linen White, which is also lovely but more cream.

Buckheadhillbilly used SW Creamy but had the black taken out - she thought it made it look dingy. I also thought it was a little dingy so I can see how that is a good solution. I thought Acadia white was too yellow for us . . This is a hard decision!!!

BM Marscapone is a designer favorite, as is Linen White, and Simply White. I am not a fan of a super stark white so the standard white was not my favorite.

I used Acadia as well, blends beautifully with off white wood blinds... No yellow and really not white. I love it!

You should start with your kitchen cabinets and pick a color that complements them and then go from there. MY designer gave me that heads up! Most whites go with all paint colors.

BM Simply White

We are using BM Super White because it goes best with our window & cabinet color.

I apologize that I don't have the time right now to find the link for you, but Google "Colour Me Happy" which is a blog by Maria Killam. She has several free articles about choosing paint colors, one is specifically about whites for trim.
