diluting same white paint color for walls to use on ceiling too?

4 years ago

I have white cabinets & black island am I’m considering BM cloud cover or vanilla milkshake for my walls. My designer recommended using it on the trim too AND the ceiling. The paint store told me to make sure I “diluted” the color for the ceiling, but the designer and others hadn’t heard of this. I’m conflicted....

has anyone used the same white/off-white paint color for their walls, trim AND the ceiling ? And if you did, did you dilute the color for the ceiling? I know ceiling should be matte, but other than that, anything to consider here?

I attached a photo of the paint colors next to chantilly lace bc chantilly is pretty darn “white” to be able to tell the undertone of any other choice.
