The problem is that those are all manufactures names and not the brand of a specific paint.

I often use Shwerwin William Cashmere or interior painting.

But I was on a job that we where useing some builder grade Shwerwin William and it took 3 coats and even then did not do the best job of covering. And this was an "easy" color.

And you will often see such arguements as they are somewhat different by color, sheen, and what kind of application that it is.

The best recomendation would be to go to a RPS (real paint store) and get their top or next to the top line.

But also tell them the application. Is it over walls in very good condition or rough? Is very forumal or do you need something that you can scrub the grim from your 37 kids off of.

You do need to go to a real paint store and not a big box. That is where you will get the best advice on your project.

I would reccomend going to Sherwin Williams as they do have good products. I have used the Cashmere and Duration Home products and they did a great job for the interior. For the exterior you will want to use either the Super Paint or Duration Exterior.

Hope this helps out.
