    I was so happy to see these white homes as I am about to have my home painted white. However I was unable to see the named colors due to 90% of them being covered by google adds. When I tried to delete them, a blank white space remained, covering the print.

      That sounds like a headache. There are often issues with my captions, and I’m going to try to get away from using them at all and will try to incorporate the info in the alt text (which you’ll see when you pin an image) or in the body of the text. As for the presence of ads, here’s the thing: we can’t ask bloggers and content creators to work for free – each post typically demands days of work.

    I so agree with you! White is ABSOLUTELY the best color to paint the exterior of a house …especially if you want a timeless look that NEVER ever will look dated or go out of style! We chose Shoji White to paint our exterior, but truly ANY of the whites you have pictured here would have been just as lovely! So if someone is laboring over which white to use (as I did for about a year! Ha!) they can just choose any one of these shades and they will be so happy! We’ve lived in our new home just over a year now and one of the things I’m MOST happy about is that we chose to paint it white & all your posts about white paint colors were a huge help to me in that process! So thanks, Michele!!

      Awwww – thank you so much for sharing all of these endorsements. I have always daydreamed about a white farmhouse and love the idea of Shoji White or Chantilly Lace. 🙂
