White Paint


Paint is one of the least expensive ways to transform a room, however, if not chosen correctly, can lead to costly mistakes.  White paint seems easy to pick, but in reality white has so many different undertones — blue, green, pink, grey — it can be as tricky as any other color.  My go-to whites aren’t any big secret.  I like Benjamin Moore’s White, White Dove and Decorators White.  But with over 200 white hues to choose from in Benjamin Moore’s line (a search on their site produced 268 references), I’d like to get out of my comfort zone and experiment more. 

In October 2011, Benjamin Moore launched Darryl Carter Colors for Benjamin Moore, and I’m really excited about trying 3 new whites.

1.  Bancroft White DC-01

 2.  Bonifant White DC-03:  White “in its purest form — timeless,” according to the Benjamin Moore website.

3.  Crestridge White DC-04:  This one has gray and green undertones, which I definitely want to explore.  Old Prairie (2143-50) is a favorite neutral that I use often, and has green undertones, so I’d love to compare.

Do you have a favorite white paint?  Do share!
