BM super white or simply white for door, crown, casing, baseboard

The walls right now have antique white color. I might consider paint it different color later. What color would I better to choose now for crown moulding, door, casing, and baseboard, BM super white or BM simply white?

Any input or sharing of experience is greatly appreciated.

I am using BM Decorators White.
No reason except it's not white-white & many designers that I have read on-line have always referenced it in their work/portfolio.
In real light it provides enough of a pop without being 'torch your eye' white!

Sorry - that is the only words of wisdom i have & no magic formula or template. :)

I love Simply White! I am using it on my ceilings (flat) and all the trim work - doors, casings, baseboards, fireplace mantel (semi gloss).

If I remember correctly (and I sampled TONS of BM whites) Super White was a bit too stark for me. I also tried Decorators White but it seemed too chalky in my space.

Our architect had strong feelings for super white so we went with that and it looks nice.
