The appearance of wall colors tends to shift throughout the day. Paint colors are especially prone to taking on different tonalities from morning to evening, under both natural and artificial lighting conditions. We suggest that you purchase a color sample of the shades you like best and test each one before you decide on a final color.
The selection of finish depends on the desired mood, aesthetic and functional goal of the room you are painting. For a highly sophisticated look, paint both walls and trim in one hue, either using the same finish on both surfaces, or using a lower sheen on the walls such as a matte. Opt for a semi-gloss or high gloss on the trim for subtle contrast.
A matte paint delivers a soft, contemporary appearance.
Higher sheens, like semi-gloss, are easy to clean, making them great options for cabinets or doors that are frequently opened, closed and in general, touched a lot.
A higher gloss offers dramatic highlights, making a painted room feel more formal.
