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.

WILL CASEY HOME TOUR

For our first home tour, we are excited to show you the home of our very own Will Casey. Will is incredibly charming and has a keen key for detail. His home is a true reflection of his expertise. 

When asked about his design style, Will said that his favorite style is Mid Century Modern. This style is reflected throughout his home. Will said, "I have always loved clean lines and neutral tones so naturally my entire house is painted White Dove." We love how this clean, bright white lightens the whole space and sets a calming and consistent tone throughout the home.

In the kitchen, Will opted to keep the existing cabinets. He painted them Night Shade, a rich and dark tone.  By adding a modern color and brass hardware, he was able to give the once dated cabinets a new, fresh feel.  Continuing with the neutral color pallet, he selected a simple white subway tile for the backsplash and Carrara Marble for the countertops. To add texture and warmth, Will added 12x24 Cork tile for the flooring. 

One of the most dramatic rooms in Will's home is his den, which is painted in a gorgeous black shade, Deep River.  This creates great contrast from the white walls in the rest of the home. 

In the Bathroom, Will says, "I decided on a classic white marble hexagon flooring, but thought that doing it in the larger 6” size would make the bath more interesting."  One of the highlights in this bathrooms is the vanity. Will installed a basic Ikea vanity in a way that allowed for the creation of a beautiful marble ledge that adds storage as well as a unique design element.  Will paired the white marble floor with Oriental White marble countertops. 

When asked about designing his home, Will says, "most designers will all say that the hardest house to design is your own and that statement is very true in my case." We think he has perfectly achieved effortless, chic style in his home.
