Interlux has a paint color called Grand Banks Beige. I think it looks smashing with dark wood moldings and doors. I do like the off white color, but the beige is a much softer look.

I am fond of cherry for interior trim. Even after it darkens it is lighter than mahogany and the grain is more interesting. A few years ago I was on a Morris that had a Herreshoff interior with apple trim. It was beautiful.

Here are some pictures of cabins in a 90 foot Trumpy built in 1939. The first and only time I have sold a boat older than me.

When talking Herreshoff you need to sort out which Herreshoff you mean. The grandfather, father, son, brother, or grandson? All had strong ideas about how things should be done. The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company had a standard interior style but it was often varied at the request of owners. At a time when most yacht interiors from the US or Northern Europe were of the "teak cave" variety, a Herreshoff interior was predominantly light painted surfaces. Below is Albacore, built in 1929 to the design of L. Francis Herreshoff. There are no large flat unbroken surfaces because there was no plywood, everything is stick built.
