SW Duration vs. Cashmere


Any preference? This is the main living area(Living room, Dining room, hall) Lots of natural and artificial light. Price is not really a consideration. We may go with a color in the 6350's or 6360's(orange-brown). Thanks.

SW Duration vs. Cashmere


Cashmere is a "showcase" room paint, but not scrubbable at all and somewhat tricky to apply. Duration is SW's flagship paint, but is not available in a dead flat. SuperPaint is pretty good paint, but reportedly not as good as Duration. (I've been using SuperPaint on all my walls and have been happy with it.)

SW Duration vs. Cashmere


I used Duration in my kid's room and was pretty happy with it. The only trouble I had was that I went back and painted the trim after the walls and the trim paint had some adhesion problems when going over the duration paint. My house is definitely not a showcase so the Cashmere may be overkill. I have a four year old and a 1 year so the "scrubbable" may be the deciding factor. I wanted a slight sheen so the Matte should be fine in the Duration. Would the ProClassic be good for the trim?

I think ProClassic looks wonderful on trim. Just take care not to brush too heavily, and never backtrack, and it will serve you well. It's very sturdy stuff.
