Choosing The Right White Paint


If you've followed along with us for a while, you may have noticed that we are big fans of white walls! While we do love many other colors, there is something special about starting with a blank canvas of bright, clean, white walls. Have you decided to try out the white wall trend but are feeling lost about which white to choose? Look no further! We've compiled our favorite and most popular whites and consulted one of our Designers, Jill Campisi, on what makes each of them unique. 


First up is Chantilly Lace OC-65.  This timeless, true white is a favorite of ours because it is pure, clean and crisp. It's the ultimate blank canvas.

Sea Pearl OC-19, formerly known as China White, has creamy grey undertones that truly represent the characteristics of a pearl. It's soft and gentle and adds just enough warmth without being yellow. Sea Pearl pairs well with contrasting darker colors like Revere Pewter HC-172.

Simply White OC-117 is simple, just like it's name. It has a touch of warmth, but still remains a very clean, bright white. It was named Benjamin Moore's Color of the year in 2016.

Soft Chamois OC-13 is one of the warmest whites listed here.  It is as versatile as it is tranquil, and a great backdrop for richer accent colors in art, fabric, and accessories.

White Dove OC-17 is our go to white. It pairs well with almost any color. It looks very creamy on a swatch but is soft and warm on a wall, trim, or cabinets while still maintaining its claim to be a true white.

Lastly, we have Ballet White OC-9.  This color is off white with a hint of beige. It's a very saturated white that will give your walls a slight pigment, especially if paired with a contrasting white trim.
