What Is Your Favorite White Paint Color?

Every designer has that “perfect” white paint color that they turn to time and time again. It looks great in every light, it doesn’t show pink, and it is the right backdrop no matter what color/style your accessories and furniture. So I’m asking you, reader. What is your tried-and-true white? China White from Benjamin Moore? Gauzy White by Sherwin Williams? Or maybe it’s Cornforth White by Farrow & Ball. I would love to hear your thoughts – drop a comment below! (I would be lying if I said I wasn’t jotting down this research for selfish reasons. I’ve been running around town with paint samples in every shade of white you can imagine. I’m all sorts of confused. If it has a grey undertone, even better.)

    We’re about to paint most of our walls Lamb from Martha Stewart Living. Fingers crossed.

  • Snow Bound by Sherwin-Williams. Just did nearly our whole house with it. It is a clean white with no noticeable undertones, but it is never harsh in bright lights (natural and artificial).

    Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace! Reads as a true white.

  • White is coming back I love the clean new look it provides.
