Designer Q&A

Q: I used semi-gloss paint on the trim in my house, because that’s what everyone says to use on trim. But it’s so shiny! I don’t like it. Should I try another brand, or another finish, like satin?

A: Nicole Curtis, host of HGTV/DIY Network’s “Rehab Addict,” answers: Semi-gloss is like me wearing Spandex — not flattering to anything past 16 years old. Use satin or eggshell.
