      Hi Susan! Consider the following two crisp whites in order to make your body color “pop”. Take a look at:
      Extra White SW 7006
      Pure White SW 7005

          Hi Vernita! Do you have a color number by chance? You may be referring to Upward SW 6239 and this color is not gray, it is definitely blue – it is the lightest color in our Naval family. Let us know. Thanks!

  3. #5 spot on for me! for me. Each room in my home Is painted quietude, this is second home I’ve done this. Absolutely love this color. Surprisingly most of my accent colors are in the #5 palette. I waited for sooo long for SW to feature Quietude in a specific palette!!
    Thank you, love, love your color palettes!

  4. Not sure what color to pick for my new kitchen walls. My island and doors are going to be Sherwin-Williams Luna Moth. White subway tile backsplash with medium tone cherry cabinets, light gray floor and soapstone counter. My designer suggested a putty color but I was thinking maybe something in the bluish/ gray family might play well off the Luna Moth. Something like SW9145 or SW6479. Would like to know your thoughts. Thanks.

  5. Hi! I going dark and using Greenblack on my exterior. A fun front door consideration is Rose Colored, Tassel is another consideration, but I don’t want it to look Ralph Lauren-esq…I prefer funky…do you have 2 more front door color ideas for me…a little less precious than Rose Colored and less conservative than Tassel??

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hi Michele, take a look at the two fun colors below – either one would look fantastic with your Greenblack exterior:
      Constant Coral SW 6325
      Luau Green SW 6712

  6. I can’t believe I found a color post based on the Enneagram! It has been part of my life and now my Spiritual Direction Practice for over 10 years. Ironically, the paint color that I am seeking is for a new place for Spiritual Direction. Since I am a “5”, I paid attention to those colors. My choice is now made – “Open Air!”

  7. I have a folk Victorian with lots of trim work, posts and rails.
    I want to paint the exterior white with the slightest pink undertone. I want to soften all the white without making it yellow, cream, green or blue.
    I’m thinking of using Gorgeous White but I’m a little afraid that might be too pink. Do you have any other options?
    I’m also trying to find a white to go on All of the trim work, that will work with the slight pinkish white body color and not be too glaring but clean looking.

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hi Heather! If Gorgeous White does not feel right to you, check out Hush White SW 6042. Whichever soft pink-white you choose, your best trim option would be Extra White SW 7006.

  8. Hello. We are staining our brown clapboard post and beam lake house SW mediterranean. What colors go with it for a door? We have black window boxes too. Thank you.

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hi Deborah! Consider using a saturated gold or orange for your door. Both of those color families are opposite Mediterranean on the color wheel and will really “pop” on your home. Check out:

      Armagnac SW 6354 Torchlight SW 6374
      Reynard SW 6348 Anjou Pear SW 6381
