So I'm going to go with "reflecting pool" for my master bed/bath (Reflecting Pool SW 6486 - Blue Paint Color - Sherwin-Williams). What color should I paint my trim and doors? The ceilings are vaulted, if that matters. Bedding is brown, curtains will be a dark navy blue (although the curtains can obviously be changed).

Also, is it ok to have different color trim/doors than the main living floor? I think I'm going to paint my walls and trim both antique white (Antique White SW 6119 - White Paint Color - Sherwin-Williams), with my doors on that level painted a really dark brown.

Thanks for any tips.

I think your paint colors are delish. I would definitely go with white or very light trim with that wall color.

And no, you don't have to have the trim in your master matching the trim in the rest of the house. In my former house, we had lots of really pretty wood trim throughout the living areas, including gorgeous wooden stained doors. But in the bedrooms we had white trim. It looked great - you didn't even notice the difference in fact.

I agree with Kathryn all the way. That said, a friend recently did a bedroom and did the ceiling and the trim with the lightest tint of the color of the walls in her white ceiling base. It is really nice, ever so subtle.

Personally, I prefer white. I think it's also good that if you decide to repaint, you just need to tape off the trim and paint the walls instead of having to re-paint both.

nice color, btw!!
