I've been driving myself crazy trying to fina paint that matches the trim in our house. Would anyone happen to know what trim paint Lennar used in their 2007 houses? I really dont' feel like painting all the trim and molding if I really don't have to..

Thanks much!

Check with Lennar they might have the info on record.

We built with a different builder but their design center has a record of everything that went into our home. I also received the info & a paint kit for touch ups.

I've been in many new homes in which the remaining paint was left behind. You may want to check the attic, garage, etc. You might have seen it many times but don't notice it any more.

Other than that, or if you can get the paint codes as suggested above, you may need to scrape off a chip from the underside of some trim and have it matched by any paint store.

I had the same issue when I moved to my Pulte home, my neighbor helped a little, was able to identify the color and the paint company they used. They used Durene and the paint was called Pulte Mist. Can you ask one of your neighbors or even the HOA, someone should have this info some place.

If you have quarter-round, you can pop a small piece of that off rather than taking a chip out of the paint. A small pry bar and a knife (to cut the caulking) will do the trick and its a lot easier than carrying a door to Home Depot to match paint.
