Anyone used Benjamin Moore's "Dove wing" as a wall color?

I am considering using Dove wing as a wall color next to bright white trim. Is it dark enough for that or will the walls just end up looking dirty? Thanks! If anyone has pics, that would be great!

I used it as the wall color above beadboard and it's a nice color but you're right, not enough contrast with white, imo--we had to paint out the trim because the walls looked dingy.

I used it in a bath with Cloud White trim and really loved it. Very soft and serene. Sorry, no pictures. I don't think it would do well with a really bright white, though.

Here's a photo from Houzz (not my house!)

Lazydaisynot, thank you! Would you say it had an undertone of any kind?

I'd say it had a slight green-leaning undertone, in a room that had a fair amount of light but no direct sunlight. I wish I had a photo for you!
