It’s no secret, I love white. It is often the base color for my designs. At first glance it may seem simple to choose a white paint, but there are subtle variations that make all the difference when selecting the right white. To help you pick the perfect white for your project I have created a white paint guide. I divided the selection for white paints into three categories; cool whites, off-whites and gray whites. The first step when you are choosing a white is to consider your overall design and other colors in the space. Warmer whites (off whites) have a creamer tone and go well in a traditional or transitional space as seen here. For a cleaner, crisp, more modern space pick a cool white. Grey whites go well with blues, greens and gray tones. If those are the colors of your furniture and big pieces in the room that will be your best choice. This dining room is a good example of grey white paint. My personal favorite is white with no pigment at all. When I remodel a kitchen, and give it that fresh new look, I almost always choose “white white.” It’s the secret to getting the bright white that goes perfect with my favorite white marbles. When you have an all white look, white paint with no pigment on the cabinets allows the subtleties of a white backsplash or calacata marble come through. I hope this white paint guide will help you as you are trying to choose the right white for your next project. See below for my white paint guide. All these selections are from Benjamin Moore except, West Highland White, which is from Sherwin Williams. Have a great day!
