Have you ever needed to pick a white but then realized a color that seems so simple and benign isn’t really that simple. White can translate so many different ways. It can go from cool, warm, crisp, clean, bright, chalky, and ivory and when you have two different whites to pick for a room or space it can become even more daunting. So we have collaborated and collected some interior designers favorite whites and put them in a nice concise list just for you!
Lets start with our Baker Design Group Designers to see what they would call their favorite go-to whites.
Eider White exhibits a more gray and cool cast that is perfect for trim
Dover White. This is one of the top paint colors we have requested by our customers, and the top overall Sherwin Williams paint color. Not only is it a gorgeous white for kitchen cabinets, it also looks great in trims and walls. It is a soft, inviting, and warmer white that pairs well with nature’s colors, such as yellows, greens, plums, blues, and purples.
Divine White. While the grey in this beautiful bathroom is gorgeous it certainly highlights the crisp white in these cabinets. Divine white is another beautiful white that works especially well in cabinetry, looking great with cooler paint tones.
In the above picture, antique white is the warmer tone on the walls and ceiling. This paint color pairs well with white trims, dark woods, and bold, bright accents such as pinks, greens, and yellows.
Interior Designer, Christine Dovey and Nancy Marcus love to use Cloud White for her trims and moldings. With a touch of yellow and blacks, this paint color pairs nicely with cooler tones.
You can’t ever go wrong with this soft warm white. Interior Designer Sherry Hart is a huge fan!
“I am a huge fan of Benjamin Moore White Dove….but I just painted the outside of my house Benjamin Moore China White and I love it so much I want to marry it….not a bright white…very chalky….”
Interior Designer Holly Mathis said, “Benjamin Moore White Dove, Behr Swiss Coffee and Benjamin Moore Simply White OC117 are all consistently good for trim and work with most color palettes. Sherwin Williams Alabaster 7008, Sherwin Williams Marshmallow 7001, and Farrow & Ball (1/2 formula) “Lime White” are my go-to whites for creamy white walls. Not sure how deep you want to go but these are very neutral. If you want a deeper, creamier white, I love Sherwin Williams Casa Blanca 7571 for walls too. It is soft, creamy and luscious.”
