If you’re looking to spruce up a room in your home, it’s no secret that the easiest way is with a fresh coat of paint—white paint, if you ask us.
While some may think white paint lacks a certain “wow factor,” we can’t get enough of this timeless color family! From warm buttery hues that yield a tinge of yellow or beige to cool and crisp shades that offer hints of pink, blue or gray, there’s no shortage of beauty found within the white rainbow.
When it comes time to choose the perfect shade of white for your walls, however, we understand that the task can be overwhelming (to say the least). With this challenge in mind, Annie compiled a list of her go-to whites for the home, with hopes that you’ll find the whole process a bit easier and more enjoyable.
Without further ado, here are Annie’s most beloved, tried and true shades of white:
- Farrow and Ball: Pointing 2003
A warm white with hints of yellow, this shade looks beautiful alongside almost every paint color and all on its own. Try pairing it with other shades of white to create a lovely monochromatic color scheme.
