Interior Designers’ Favorite White Paint Colors!
I get asked like A LOT about the best white paint to use so clearly this is a topic of interest. But isn’t white paint all the same…how important is the right shade? If you ask me…
It’s important to take your time because as you’ll find when you try samples on the wall, each white has different undertones and temperatures.
The lighting, objects, and decor style in your space will come into play when you’re choosing a shade of white.

Favorite White Paint Colors: Greet Lefèvre
Her designs and her own home take my breath away, so it’s always a treat to hear inside information about paint colors this designer favors.
“It is hard to name a favorite white! Using the right color of white is dependent upon the room that has to be painted. Is it a small or a large room? Is there a lot of light coming in or not? Another factor….fabrics to be used in the room for curtains and upholstery. But I often turn to FARROW & BALL Pointing White or White Tie.” – Greet Lefèvre of Lefèvre Interiors & author Belgian Pearls
Such a keen eye and natural flair for chic! I love being surprised by the lovely work of interior designer Megan Pflug.
“My favorite “white” wall color is Farrow and ball Ammonite. It is a fantastic changeable color. It looks more like a stone material than a flat wall color. Its a great alternative to a standard white.” – Megan Pflug
