In our home, we covered yellowed walls, ceilings, and trim with BENJAMIN MOORE White (yep, just plain White). After trying out a handful of other whites with unflattering undertones, this bright, clear, gallery-like white was the answer for modernizing dated interiors.

If you’re looking for a warm white that looks great with a cooler white for painted trim, consider this one. I used it throughout our prior home as I loved how it looked in rooms with abundant natural light as well as those spaces which were more dim.

    Every time I see one of your posts about whites, I simply must read it 🙂 Like you, for me, white never gets old.

    My hubby and I recently renovated a house. It’s somewhat unique in that it’s an earth-sheltered house. Because all windows face south we knew there may be rooms that looked a little dark at certain times of the day. White was going to be our best option to keep it light and bright. The front of the house has stone cladding so we named the house Stone Cottage.

    As I was looking for white paint colors I happened to stumble on a lovely white called Pebble White (a Nautica brand color). It has a wonderful clean look to it but now with my more ivory furniture in place, at various times of the day, it has a very pleasant hint of gray undertone. We used that color throughout the house on ceilings, walls and trim except for one room (the billiards room…yes, we inherited the table from the former owner 😉 ) which we painted Smooth Stone by Glidden. It is a very soft, light gray.

    Kitchen cabinets were painted PPG’s color Fossil Stone. Floors were painted another PPG color White Rock. I didn’t go about searching for colors that referenced stone or rock, it just sort of turned out that way. 🙂

    White just never gets old 🙂 And now with all the Christmas trees up, each tree’s unique color scheme works perfectly with the white background too….not to mention the snow on the ground outside the windows. 😉

    Love your white home….it has inspired me on many occasions!

      Thanks so much for allowing us to come along the journey as you feather your new nest. Mixing shades of white is so smart – a lot of folks don’t know what they’re missing by keeping it all one note. I happen to love cream with bright whites. Happy decorating, friend. 🙂
