Question
i have painted my feature wall the Brewster Grey color and i am now looking for a Cream Biege color for the main walls....Any suggestions for a color for trim (White) would be great..I bought Chantily Lace as the color but not sure if it was a good choice..
Thank you

Answer
HI Faye,
Try: 919 buttermilk, or 927 white swan..(both are very pale yellows)
Also: 920 Honey Harbor (a little more color in that)
246, 247,248 - more "toned gold' type
1114 - Hartsmere  a more "beige" type a variation on gold-toned brown (you will see, the darker versions, where the color comes from)
a great "white" that goes with many colors is Ben Moore 967.
hope that helps


Good Luck,
Barbara Jacobs
