Paint Sheens

This is just a general guide of paint sheens and when I use them! I often pick the same colour for the walls and trim, but change the sheen so it gives them a bit of a different look!

    Love your colors.
    We are going to redo our kitchen. I like the color of your cabinets.
    I don’t want to use gloss as it shows imperfections so can I use satin on kitchen cabinets? Or is semi gloss better
    Thank you 😊

    Hey Denise, my cabinets are closest to a Pearl finish, a satin would work as well! Hope this helps.

    Your kitchen is gorgeous and such an inspiration. What sheens did you use on the kitchen walls and wainscoting?

    Thank you so much Andrea. The kitchen walls are eggshell and the bathroom wainscoting is pearl finish, but I could have used semi-gloss as well.

    What are your thoughts on doing two different whites for trim and walls? White dove walls and simply white trim?

    I think that would look nice, it’s a more traditional look and creates more of a contrast between the two so they stand out more.

    So inspirational ! I love what your doing ! I plan to repaint my living and dining room. I will use White Dove for the walls and the trims. What about the ceiling ??? I have a Victorian new house with a lot of trims. Want to make it more farm house.
    Your thoughts for the Color of the ceiling ?
    Thank you so much !

    Sylvie, Thank you so much! My living room and dining room are white dove everything. When you switch the sheen it makes them appear a little different but match perfectly. If you did white dove: walls eggshell, ceiling flat, trim semi-gloss it would be a nice mix.

    Hi Emma, I will be emulating a lot of your paint colours.
    What colour have you done the interior doors?
    For example the doors to your bedrooms and bathrooms?

  14. Emma Courtney

    I believe they are all White Dove by Benjamin Moore! I haven’t repainted any but I think that is what the previous owners used!

    Can you help with the comparable Sherman Williams paint colors for your kitchen cabinets and walls and also your bedroom?

  16. Emma Courtney

    No, unfortunately, I don’t have anything comparable. Paint colours are very hard to replicate/match and get the same outcome. You might be able to find similar, but not exact. Sorry!

    Hi Emma! Thanks for sharing! Your house is beautiful! I too am painting my cabinets in natural cream and after going down a rabbit hole researching the paint color I came across your post! I’m trying decide which paint to use from Benjamin Moore. Did you use advance? What sheen did you use? I’m concerned about it potentially yellowing and leaning towards Aura but would love and appreciate any feedback you might have.

    Thanks again!

    HI Emma, I’m considering painting my kitchen cabinets natural cream as well. It is north facing and I’m a little worried it might feel too dark or yellow. Thoughts?

    Hi Jenn, I think it depends on how many windows you have. I don’t think it will look yellow, the undertones are more grey… though if you don’t have many windows, it might appear darker than you’d like. My recommendation is to get a sample can and paint it on a larger surface to hold up in your kitchen. The little chips always look a little darker than they are when they are spread out on a larger surface.

    Hi Clayton, That’s so exciting! I had my cabinet fronts custom-made and painted so I am not sure what they used since it was done professionally! If you are planning to paint them yourself I definitely recommend a good primer like BIN Zinsser so you don’t have any chipping!
