White is a very special color with a huge fan club no matter what interior trends dictate. It is considered a neutral color by most and therefore, it comes to no surprise that it is the color-to-go-to when all else will not cut it. Therefore, I put together my top five Benjamin Moore white paints that I turn to without second thoughts when I need that perfect white paint color.
There is a lot more to white paint that meets the eye. Just like most colors it also comes in many shades, governed by undertones (i.e. yellow, red, blue, brown…). Hence, the result is a whole lot of off-whites, some of which are very well poised and definitely less stark than pure white.
So from the 120 or something off-white shades from Benjamin Moore, I have used five of them time after time and have proven to be real true gems. They are brilliant, each in its own way and will work for any interior and/or style.
Hence, I’m sharing them with you today, to help any of you who wish to put together an all white design. They are some of the most popular off whites, because their undertones are just about right – not too warm and creamy or too cold and dingy. They can be paired together nicely for a more crisp effect, without giving you any worries.
Best 5 White Paint Colors:
White Dove OC-17: classic, creamy and poised;
Simply White OC-117 creamy, versatile and crisp
Chantilly Lace OC-65, the purest of them all
White Heron OC-57, versatile and on the cool side; matches great with Chantilly Lace for the perfect tone-on-tone approach
and last but not least, Calm OC-22 versatile and easy going. In the video, I also mention Classic Gray OC-23 as a bonus.
The great thing about the shades of white I show you explicitly in the video is that they can work for almost any interior. Hence, if you ever feel uncertain about which white to use, then you know now that you can always turn to any of these for a fail-proof result.
Have a great weekend, xo
