Advice for kitchen cabinets & wall paint pairing

6 days ago

So a kitchen project is on- painting and the cabinets are going to be resurfaced. The new cabinet color is Antique White which the company says is an "unverified industry match" with the same Sherwin Williams shade.

I've already picked Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee for my walls and backsplash because the kitchen area does not get a lot of natural light (see photo) and I really liked the luminous whitened-cream look of Swiss Coffee. But I'm a little concerned that Antique White might look overly yellow (not creamy...just sallow) with Swiss Coffee because of so-called tricky undertones.

The three samples below are what I've got on hand, plus the cabinet sample in the middle for contrast. White Dove is what we're using for trim everywhere, Navajo White in most of the rooms, and then of course Swiss Coffee in the kitchen. Navajo White looked like it was exactly the same color as the AW sample. Sorry for the shadows.
