Whites are popular paint colors because they provide a neutral backdrop no matter what your decor style. Whites also pair well with virtually any other color or finish.

Some lean warm, some lean cool. Some are so dark they’re considered off-white, and some are so light and bright that they feel stark.

So where to begin? Let’s dive into the details of Bit of Sugar today and see if it’s the right choice for your home!

Trim Colors

For white paint colors, the best option is to use the same color for the walls and for the trim. Just choose a different finish for tone-on-tone contrast.

So, choose Bit of Sugar in eggshell finish for the walls and Bit of Sugar in semi-gloss for the trim. This gives a nice, soft finished look.
