Home Decorating Tried & True Warm Neutrals

Tried & True Warm Neutrals

Not only is picking the right neutral tricky, but there are so many options to choose from! We turned to designers to share their favorite go-to warm neutrals that add warmth and delight to any room.
“I used Behr Falling Snow because I wanted a simple and clean but warm white for this space. We love how the natural light reflects off this shade and creates a serene atmosphere!”
—Hannah Briggs, Thistle Harvest

“The paint color is Sherwin Williams White Snow on the walls and Alabaster on the trim. I wanted to use warm whites that worked well with dark wood furniture. It feels crisp and calm.”
—Eddie Ross, Maximalist Studios

“The color we used is Snowbound by Sherwin Williams. We originally chose the color because living in Minnesota, our winters are long and we wanted to keep our home as bright as we could year round. It is a wonderful neutral white with a subtle warm tone underneath without appearing yellow. To me, it feels fresh and bright but cozy and welcoming.”
—Lea Johnson, Creekwoodhill

“We looked at samples of varying shades of white and landed on Sherwin Williams Alabaster because it has a nice warm tone. We didn’t want the walls to be stark white or have gray undertones. This paint color is throughout the house, so finding the perfect shade of white was very important!”
—Kelley Parker Roberts, Beckley Design Studio

“I used Pointing by Farrow & Ball in my living room, and often in my projects. I love that it is a warmer white with a slightly red undertone.” – Mark D Sikes, Mark D. Sikes

“I chose Galleria White from RomaBio because it is a soft white that lets the other elements of the room shine. It serves as a pretty backdrop…like a gallery wall 🙂 It’s also part of my paint line with RomaBio!” —Susan Daggett, Kindred Vintage

“I designed this space with a mix of neutrals, lots of texture, and pops of color. The Annie Selke rug helps modernize the space and add dimension. I chose the paint color Benjamin Moore’s Mountain Peak White as it pairs beautifully with creams and blacks. There’s a subtle warmth to it that works well against the many textures found throughout the space. Lastly, the color imbues a calming feeling which is something I always look for in a bedroom color.”

“Benjamin Moore Simply White. I love that it picks up the tones of the room – it’s warm, but not overly creamy. It’s the perfect soft white!
– Jennifer Hunter, Jennifer Hunter Design

Benjamin Moore’s Ivory White is one of my go-to paint colors that always lands in a perfect sweet spot between white and ivory, just as the name implies.”
