  1. I am trying ot choose colors for the trim, walls, kitchen cabinets and island. I want very neutral in the tan line. I think I want DOVE while for the trim. I know I want the island maybe the darkest. I would like it to be in the same pallete. I do not want anythign that will pick a pink or orange hue. Sooooo do you have any suggestions.

      Hi Tracy! . Can you tell us the exact name and number for your trim? We see Dove but we don’t have a color by that name. A number of paint companies make a color called Dove White and Benjamin Moore makes a White Dove that is very popular. We would need to know which Dove/Dove White/White Dove you are using. Also could you please tell the colors of your flooring, countertops, and backsplash?
