White Walls Can Talk...

Suggesting white color for the walls often raises a few eyebrows among our clients. Isn’t it boring? Will the room feel uninviting and cold?  We don’t think so! Check out these projects – no other color but white would work in these spaces.

White shouldn’t be equated with absence of color or imagination. Its subtle beauty can become a wonderful background for furnishings, fabrics and art. A word of caution: picking out the right white is a task in its own. The numerous shades of white, 120 to be precise in Benjamin Moore collection, and each one of them has its own personality, really! You might get surprised when that personality comes out after the walls are painted and the tape is off. Some of our favorites:

  •  Navajo White – a timeless shade of creamy white, great for kitchen cabinetry with glazed door detail for an old-world look
  • White Dove – simply perfect white, not too creamy, not too stark
  • Decorators Whites – cool white, try it on trim
  • Atrium White – crisp white with drops of purple
  • Swiss Coffee – off-white color with a touch of sophistication, no yellow undertones
  • Linen white – clean and fresh

Why we love white so much? It brings everything to a balance and works across many styles. When used deliberately it can create some fun and colorful spaces.

From a point of view of color psychology, white represents harmony, serenity, new beginning. So, please don’t be afraid of white. It may not seem to be as exciting as orange but give it a try!
