i am just wondering - at the moment, we have crown moulding in our living room that is stained and i would like to paint it.  I am wondering if i paint that the ceiling colour (white) or if i paint it the colour of our trim (cream)?

Hello heidi rose,

It's a personal preference, but I like the look of crisp white trim. Read this article for our favourite white paints. I love Benjamin Moore's Cloud White.

Good luck!

the colour of our trim is called gentle cream from benjamin moore and our ceilings are white (whatever white comes when you buy ceiling paint).  i would think to paint the crown moulding white to match the ceiling, but i am just wondering as then it would make the trim look a little yellowish... so just wondering
