White Homes + A Few White Exterior Paint Colors

My inbox receives a steady flow of questions about paint colors, and I have been helping folks pick them for their interiors and exteriors for decades and certainly before the dawn of blogging.

See more of this board and batten low country cottage by Lisa Furey. Paint color is BENJAMIN MOORE White…certainly a winning white paint color.

Paint color consulting is pure pleasure for me, and I’m not terribly influenced by what’s trending or color of the year yada yada. Where my attention lies is: is it tasteful and timeless? Does it have staying power? Does it enhance and work with the light?

    Michele I just loved this entire post. What a treat. I’m always thinking about painting my house white and I’ve not made a decision on the paint color at all, so this is so helpful. Also I started laughing out loud when I read the quote about the traumatic hair cut on the way. HAHAHA Oh my god. That’s so me. I can’t believe how long my hair is, and so in need of some layers not to mention a little color on my roots. I’m sending psychic vibes out to my hairdresser. Will keep you posted. stay safe and healthy honey-bunny.

      hahahaha. I love it when you call me honey bunny, love muffin. I trimmed my bangs this morning! My thing about my dark roots is that I will finally make a fashion statement with my accidental lazy balayage. (i have never understood intentional balayage, btw…please someone educate me). Keep me posted on your house painting, and keep laughing, beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Really funny things about #quarantine! ๐Ÿ˜‰ What a giggle! It’s good to have things to laugh about in these really weird times.

    But I must say I’m lucky about not gaining 15 pounds….We’re working on the entire grounds of our property which includes an orchard and vineyard…It had been neglected for 10 years by the previous owner….just like the home’s interior which we renovated last fall! Just me and hubby so long days of LOTS of physical outdoor work = weight loss! Yay ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks Michele,
    Great post, to me itโ€™s daunting to try to pick a shade of white for our exterior. This was very helpful! And I loved the quotes- hilarious!!

    I hope when Iโ€™m late to comment itโ€™s not too much trouble! Of course I loved this post. One of the many reasons Iโ€™ve been following your blog is your aesthetic feels like home to me. Your personality that comes through feels similar and your faith makes you my sister! Lovely sums you up, to me!
    A couple of posts ago you introduced the Staves to me! Where have I been?! Thank you! Honey Bunny is a favorite endearment of mine, your friend is spot on. It suits you. Peace be with you. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      What a gift when you add to the beauty and take the time to leave kindness here. Thank you for being a honey bunny this Sunday morning. The Staves!!! I know!!! Their harmonies for me are otherworldly and give me a taste of heaven, yes? We need to taste it now more than ever. I’ll keep sharing bits of my music that seem to feed my soul in hopes there will be feasting of which I may never know. xox

    Iโ€™m wanting to paint my house White to make our Stone stand out. I chose White Duck SW. I just bought a tester. We have a Craftsman house. Iโ€™m hoping it wonโ€™t be too drastic. I was wondering if I could use a soft gray for the trim so it would match the windows that are framed with gray?

      White Duck is a beautiful warm white and seems somewhere between my beloved Ben.Moore White Sand and Ben Moore Revere Pewter. I would probably not do gray trim unless you want your eye to go to be drawn to all those elements outlined in grey rather than the whole. Darker contrasting trim over white can be jarring. I know it’s a popular look with black and white modern farmhouses, but for a traditional look that won’t fall from favor, low contrast often is safe. You may want to get creative and take a photo of the house and play around with editing it with color (like canva or picmonkey) or the old fashioned way with markers on a hard copy of the photo. Let me know if this helps at all.

    Hi! Loved all thesde photos!! I cant seem to find the list of the whites though. I do see the contrasting colors called out but not the whites. Obviously it’s user error, but can you direct me? Thanks so much!
