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?

    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!
