What Shade of White is Right?
One of my most asked questions is, “What is your go-to shade of white paint?“ From crisp to clean, off-white, and everything in between, it is hard to pick just one shade. Though it may seem like a simple selection, many of my clients get overwhelmed with endless options! I have narrowed down my top picks to 7 beautiful shades from Benjamin Moore to serve as your go-to guide in your next redesign.
To start us off, we have this beautiful neutral shade. With warm undertones and a touch of gray added, this color is both graceful and elegant. In a space with an abundance of natural light, this color will shine with a warm off-white tone. In areas with little natural light, such as an interior power room, the gray tones in this color will shine!
Up next, we have Gray Owl. This color has been one of Benjamin Moore’s best sellers for the last six years, which comes as little surprise given its versatility. Gray Owl is a warm light gray shade that balances warm and cool perfectly, making it extremely dependable and an easy go-to pick. This color works wonderfully in rooms with a small natural light section and provides a seamless foundation for other colors to be introduced.
If you are in the market for an off-white color, look no further! Natural Cream is part of the Off-White Color collection and is endlessly versatile. This shade mixes warm gray tones and creamy white elements that provide the perfect foundation for any home looking for a subtle sophistication!
Another go-to shade of mine is Paper White. Think of that beautiful yardstick you have tucked away in your drawer, timeless, elegant, and memorable, all attributes encompassed by this gorgeous shade of white. Paper White will create a very subtle shadow of gray on any wall. It is a perfect color in rooms with many windows and intense sunlight, as it slightly changes color at various times of the day!
Up next is this beautiful soft shade, White Heron. Another one of Benjamin Moore’s most popular shades, White Heron, is the perfect off-white hue. This color is clean and crisp, without being stark and cold like a pure white may provide. Painting your walls in this gorgeous shade will create an excellent canvas for endless creativity to be built upon.
If you are looking for a clean, crisp white, China White is your best bet! This fail-safe choice maintains its tone in any light and will provide you with that tidy look and feel you are desiring. This beautiful shade offers warmth without the hint of yellow that you see in most off-white paint colors.
Last but certainly not least, we have Dove Wing. This beautiful shade of white is a member of Benjamin Moore’s Classic Color Collection, in which they select timeless, elegant, and versatile shades. Dove White has gray tones that make for a softer shade, while the touch of yellow makes it warm and an inviting hue of white. This shade is the perfect based for an accent of color cabinetry.
That wraps up my favorite white color selections from Benjamin Moore! Though there are hundreds of options out there, I hope this guide will provide you with insight into which direction you should head in for your next remodel.
