Sara McLean HI Kate-this is Sara from Dunn-Edwards. If your hallway is narrow and has little light, I suggest DEW340 Whisper. However, if you want to play with a bit of color, here are some great options to test that give a shot of color down the hall reminiscent of a Martha Stewart look - DEC771 Shaggy Barked, DEC781 Sycamore Stand, DEC750 Bison Beige, DE6304 Blustery Wind, DE6297 Patina Creek. Happy painting! READ MORE
Sara McLean Hi Tim-this is Sara from Dunn-Edwards. Here are 3 other trim/door color combos to test as options to Floating Feather & Wild Mustang. Opt 1 - DEC741 Bone/DEA160 Hope Chest; Opt 2 - DE6170 Rice Bowl/DE6313 Enchanted Eve; Opt 3- DE6204 Trite White/DEA149 Spiced Berry. Happy painting! READ MORE
kate Hi Sara, We painted the interior of our house inside passage with whisper for the ceiling. We have cabinets along the hall way that we would like to paint. Should we paint it whisper? Or can you recommend a color for the cabinets that will compliment inside passage. Thanks READ MORE
