We love a bold wall, but white has always been our go-to for a clean, light foundation.  When in doubt, we always start with white.  We can layer on color later if we change our minds.

We have an affinity for the Benjamin Moore color palette for whites, as they cover all the bases.  Your local paint store can re-create a Benjamin Moore shade in whatever brand you like. 

We've narrowed down our absolute favorites, each for its own special qualities

Super White to give your room a very bright, light bouncy quality.  This is good for rooms without much light, rooms with a loft-y feel, or as a base for an all white room to allow the subtleties of softer shades of white to shine.

Chantilly Lace to give your room the creamy quality of a Parisian apartment.

China White for rooms that are flooded with light so the white is not too blinding.  
To choose the best white for your room:
  • Pick a color you like and two similar colors on the same or surrounding color cards. 
  • Paint two sets of large swatches of each of the three colors.
  • Post one set of swatches in direct sunlight and one set in shadow.
  • Morning, mid-day and night, check your swatches and make a mark on the one you like best at each time of day, and have someone whose opinion you value do the same.  

By the end, there will be a clear winner.

I'm a big fan of painting the trim to match the walls for a chic, clean look.

Or a completely different color for drama.  (That's another blog post for another day.)

But if you'd like just a touch of contrast, go one shade lighter or one shade darker on the color card.  

Visit our pinterest page for inspiration (and a bit of courage) for your own white out.  

Then don your coveralls and get to work transforming your room into a light-filled work of art.
