    Hi Amanda, thanks for the article. I’m thinking about snowbound white for my cabinets and pure white for walls and trim. Thoughts on this? the house has a lot of trees around it so I’m trying to find ways to brighten it up.

      Hi Katy, I think snowbound on cabinets will be beautiful! Pure white is my go-to for trim. Usually I like to paint walls a different color on trim so there’s a little contrast. Maybe sample Repose Gray and see if that’s too dark for you?

  3. Hello! We are going to be painting our exterior vinyl and shutters in September, and I am lookign for a beautiful white color for the siding and black for the shutters. Our home is south facing and gets sun for most of the day, but don’t want a warm white color that will look dirty next to the snow in the winter. (We live in Virginia). Would you recommend Snowbound? Or Super White?

  4. Hi Amanda, thanks for the article. I am painting my entire house and would love your feedback.
    Walls: Alabaster
    Trim/Doors/Kitchen Cabinets/Ceiling: Snowbound?

    Thoughts on that combo or would you do something different for the trim?
    Thanks for your time in advance.

  5. We have SW Extra White on our first floor trim and doors and love it. We recently had our kitchen cabinets painted SW Snowbound on the top cabinets and SW Navel on the bottom cabinets. The knobs are a porcelain white indigo lines and flowers. So far, we are very happy. The SW Navel looks good with our wood floor ties in well with other rooms.

    Our question is what color of white to paint the kitchen walls? Do we repeat with Snowbound but in a softer sheet? While we like the Snowbound on the cabinets, it seems like it might be a bit stark on the walls. However, the cabinets are semi-gloss. When I look at samples of other whites with the snowbound, they seems to have conflicting undertones or be too gray-ish or too beige -ish, etc.

  8. Hi Amanda!
    We decided to repaint our walls in our house Snowbound. The doors, trim and baseboards are Sherwin-Williams pure white. Will this coordinate? The kitchen cabinets are a very bright white. We have quartzite counters with greys, tan and white.

    Hi Amanda! Thank you for this article. It is very helpful. Our home is dark with not much natural light. We are hoping to brighten it up. We are thinking of SW snowbound for kitchen cabinets and repose gray or agreeable gray for the walls in the kitchen and in the home. We are also going to being painting the ceiling white as right now the ceiling is the same creamy color as the walls. We have dark wood floors. What are your thoughts on the color combination of agreeable or repose gray for walls and snowbound for cabinets? Our granite is primarily black with spots of brown and gray.
