Gloss and opinions on colors.


I'm painting my new door and trim soon and was looking for a little insight.

What sort of sheen should I use for this project? I like satin but the majority online says semi gloss.

I am leaning toward a dark purple or maybe an orange. I want a change from the reds and I think those would complement the rustic hictory roof that I have.

I'm attaching some color swatches below.

Thanks everyone!

Delicious Plum

Deep Amethyst

Fresh Grape Juice

Fresh Tangerines
