Love, love your color. It's close to the color I used in our library. After the first four coats of paint, I gave up and used a grey primer -- wish I had done this at the outset. This falls under "live and learn." Reds are not easy to work with until you know what to do.

Your kitchen is really going to look lovely. Congrats to you!!

Don't be nervous.........it's just paint! If you don't like it you can change it.........just have fun! We are huge University of Alabama fans.........Raspberry truffle is the same as the crimson the team wears!

so what is the typical finish used in bathromms,powder rooms,kitchens,dining rooms,bedrooms.
For example if i got rasperry truffle in a flat.matte finish-can i also use the same paint for my powder room....or are you supposed to use semi gloss or satin or eggshell in bathrooms-Is so why?
