Creamy Trim Color

I've thought about trim color for a long time. I've heard the rumors about Dove White being the best. I honestly want something a bit warmer and creamer. A creamy that's more mocha and less yellow. I imagine the color being a bit different but classic against pale greens, blues, and pinks. This bathroom spotted over at Bliss feels just about right. So pretty. Do you know a good trim color that I would like? Leave me a comment below. See more of the house shot by the talented Rachel Smith over here.

  1. I have Benjamin Moore's "white blush" running through my whold 1820s house---it's pretty creamy.

  3. I have White Dove at trim color in my modern apartment, as well as in my rural place upstate. I love it in both style homes.

  4. I love trim that isn't white. We have Grant Beige on the walls in our living and dining rooms and the trim is Bennington Gray, a shade darker. I love it! Bennington would probably be darker than you'd like, but Grant Beige might work. It's a pale, pale taupe what leans a little gray -- just a little. Both by Benjamin Moore.

  5. Katy, I love this house, esp the blue treatment in the bedroom. I think I may try to do something similar in mine. Thanks!

  6. Benjamin Moore's Atrium White is an off-white with a very slight pink or peach hint in it. BM's China White is that gray-off white-mocha color of old bath tile. Farrow & Ball has a lot of darker, creamier, more natural and old fashioned colors from the 1820s, most of which work well with cool, pale colors. The color cards are accurate, and you can buy a $4 sample pot of every color they make.

  7. I've used Farrow & Ball's White Tie--very nice, like heavy cream--no heavy yellow undertone. Their paint contains more pigment than American paints, so depth of color is stronger. Pointing is nice too, a bit airier.

  8. Benjamin Moore's Bavarian Cream is the perfect trim color. Just paired it with BM's Fernwood in my 1920's house and it looks amazing.

  9. My trim is Benjamin Moore Vanilla Cream and it's fantastic - warm and creamy and not yellow. My bath is greenish like the one you show (Benjamin Moore Hint of Mint, I think) and it's a great combination. The cream trim just seems more correct in a 1898 house, the bright whites are a little too shocking.

  10. i used dove white on the trim in my first house and found it too yellow. i've used linen white (Ben. Moore)on the trim in my current house and find it just right, especially in rooms where i've used color on the walls instead of white.

  11. We used White Dove as the trim in our main living areas, but also wanted something warmer in our bathroom. So we ended up using BM's Old Prairie as our bathroom trim with Salisbury Green on the walls. It's a creamy white. I can send pics if you like!
